If you’ve been anywhere near Zara within the past month, you’ll know that they’ve seriously upped their summer game with a wide array of eye-catching, spectacular bomber jackets. While I need not expand my existing collection that is on high rotation every day, I felt that my closet could seriously use a pop of colour. Thus, the baby pink satin-y bomber jacket was welcomed to my already jam-packed clothing rack.
It’s hard not to acknowledge the reference to Grease whenever I wear this piece. It’s hard not to admire Rizzo, Frenchie, and all of the other Pink Ladies that don covetable pink jackets with their names embroidered on the front. They are the original squad goals, long before the 90’s supermodel sensation and the Instagram stars of today. Now, Zara gives this iconic staple a face lift and makes it less cliquey-looking for today’s day and age. Despite its simplification in design, the added sheen never fails to catch the eye of those you pass on the street. It’s also thin enough that it’s hardly a jacket at all, making it perfectly wearable during the summer season.
