How To Style The Active Flex Bomber Jacket With The Modern Otter

By now, we’re assuming that you’ve noticed our outerwear obsession: the bomber jacket is everywhere & we can’t stop, won’t stop. This season, we’ve taken the bomber jacket for an active spin by constructing the jacket from our signature Flex fabric for increased comfort & flexibility. With traditional ribbing around the collar and cuffs, the AEO Active Flex Bomber Jacket has the look of your favorite bomber and and a feel that’s totally new. Aaron, the menswear blogger behind The Modern Otter, styled our Active Bomber Jacket with casual layers to tone down the loungewear feel and amp up the wear-anywhere, ready-for-whatever vibe. Keep reading to see Aaron’s full look & shop his #AEOSTYLE. Plus, check out Aaron’s past post with us here.

How To Style The Active Flex Bomber Jacket With Blogger The Modern Otter

MEET AARON: “Hi, I’m Aaron. The Modern Otter started from a passion to tell the stories behind fashion. It’s easy to throw up a few photos, but I care about who made it, where the fabric came from, what inspired the design or what trend it embodies. Every piece of clothing tells a story and I think it’s important to know that story. That sounds lofty, I know. But The Modern Otter is really just a place of discovery. A site for us to find cool places and things and talk about them.

A little about me: I currently live in New York City but have lived in California, Arizona and UpState(ish) New York. My background is in theatre and costume design, but I spent 10 years as a merchandising manager for a major retailer. Now I’m blogging and advising full time!”

How To Style The Active Flex Bomber Jacket With Blogger The Modern Otter

WHAT INSPIRED AARON’S LOOK: “What makes a bomber a bomber? Most notably, the ribbed wrists and waist band. That’s why a baseball jacket and a leather jacket can both be ‘bombers’. Those embroidered “signature” jackets you saw all over the place this Summer? Yup. Those are bombers too. For today’s look, I paired AEO’s Active Flex Bomber Jacket with a twill shirt and ribbed turtleneck for some casual Fall layering. I’m obsessed with turtlenecks (in case you couldn’t tell from my Insta), and I took the styling up a notch by wearing it under my twill shirt. This only works if the turtleneck is thin.”

Meet Kassala:
“Hi, I’m Kassala. I’m a 23-year-old from Montana – a small town in the middle of nowhere. I recently made the big move to New York city to turn my passions into a career. I love being able to share my life with everyone over social media through fashion, photography, and traveling.”

What Inspired Kassala’s Look:
“It’s my favorite time of year, the weather is changing. I love fall and winter fashion. I was inspired by the weather to dress up cozy pieces. The flannel is perfect for staying warm and being stylish. I have a very minimal style all together, so I styled the plaid button down with black skinny jeans, black ankle boots. I added a leather jacket to give the look a little more edge.”
