Zendaya makes everything cool.
Over the weekend, Zendaya went out to New York for a date with her Spider-Man: No Coming Home co-actor Tom Holland. The duo were spotted on a rainy city street wearing casual looks: cuffed jeans, retro sneakers and a checkered jacket for the on-screen superhero and a sleek all-black outfit consisting of pants , boots and a leather jacket for his GM.
While Zendaya’s slicked up bun and bouffant bottom gave off chill vibes, her leather jacket gave the look an edge. It’s impossible not to look cool wearing any type of leather jacket – biker or blazer – but the bomber is an understated version that’s seriously understated. With a collar, gathered waist and puff sleeves, the Dunes The actress’ leather bomber jacket is the epitome of effortless style, and now we’re craving ours.
Unlike polished blazers or zip-up biker styles, leather bomber jackets are baggy and carefree (but more stylish than denim jackets), making them the perfect finishing touch for a variety of outfits. Layer one over a classic denim and tee combo or even a sundress when you’re looking for an extra edge this spring. While Zendaya’s choice is likely to be genuine leather, we found six faux leather bomber jackets on Amazon and Nordstrom — and they’ll all set you back under $100.
