Perfect Pairings | Cropped Pants & Classic Bomber Jackets

As the summer comes to an end and you stash away the shorts, restock those shelves with a few alternatives to jeans or dress pants. The ankle crop is where it’s at – as demonstrated by brands like Publish, Stussy, Bristol Los Angeles and NSF Clothing. On top, simple tees work well, because for that final layer, we’re recommending upgraded bomber jackets, perfect for the lower temps that will soon be ushered in.

A bomber jacket gets a high class upgrade when made with 100% nylon in a perfect champagne color.  With a rose gold zipper and hardware, the Highland Bomber Jacket, $545, is a modernized classic. Pair it with the Revolve x Publish Philson Pant, $120. This collaboration comes in the form of a cotton/spandex cropped pant, with side welt pockets, double back pockets and drawstring waist.

Pick up the pace, or slow it way down, in a bomber that’s ready for the track & field star in you. Get the Reigning Champ x Asics Tiger Bomber, $270, and wear it with the utterly comfy Garment Dyed Beach Pant by Stussy, $90. Available in four colors, but we dig the unexpected rose hue, shown.
