Hello bombshell! Spring 2014 is in: an air raid of popping colors, electric prints, sporty silhouettes and eye-catching embellishment. After years of refinement by the biggest names, including Carven, Armani and Balmain, this must-have spring piece has finally been perfected and airlifted straight from the Paris fashion runways to your closet.

The sporty version of the blazer made a fly-through invasion in spring collections by some of the biggest names in fashion, including Marc Jacobs, Victoria Beckham, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dries Van Noten, Tess Giberson and Tracy Reese.The versatile and edgy bomber jacket can be paired with almost any look to deliver a B-52 dose of fashion authority, but we love it with another high-flying spring ’14 icon: the classic pair of shorts.Breezy, comfy and practical, the tried and true short is a great opportunity to experiment with a new pattern, trendy color palate or stylish new cut. Pair it up or down with a bomber jacket for a supercharged look that can be reworked and restyled season after season. On the streets of Paris, wear this look easily in cooler temperatures by throwing in your favorite pair of tights, thigh-highs or leggings. Take your high-velocity look from day to night with the flip of an accessory, and be ready to step out into spring 2014 with a combination attack that is sure to show you’ve hit your Paris fashion target.Pro tip: You can take Girls’ Guide with you on your handheld!
