Mandy Moore put a playful spin on the monogrammed jacket movement

The embroidered bomber jacket trend is sweeping the nation and is turning into a must-have for the spring season. Now while you can’t wrong with the classic floral embroidery, why not take this trend in a unique direction? For instance, Mandy Moore got up close and personal with her monogrammed bomber jacket, and we’re currently headed to the craft store to DIY ourselves this look.

On Wednesday, the This Is Us star attended the FashionABLE Equal Pay Day kick-off Dinner, hosted by Minka Kelly and Barrett Ward. To the event, Moore wore a super simple striped sweater and solid skirt combo.

But to playfully punch up the look, Moore threw a personalized bomber over her shoulders. How cute!


Moore’s green “M” and heart patches are fun and quirky. The embellishment balances out the seriousness of the outfit by adding a little spunk.


To recreate this look, tap into your inner-DIY enthusiast. Pick up a simple bomber jacket at your local thrift store or H&M. This men’s bomber jacket ($34.99) is a great dupe for Moore’s —


Next, you’ll need a personalized patch. You can make one for yourself out of some scrap fabric or felt by simply cutting out your letter(s) and shapes and sewing them on to the jacket. Some form of iron-on adhesive will be your savior if you’re making your own patch.

Or you can hop over to Etsy to find pre-made patches. We love these vintage-looking letter patches from Etsy seller EmbroideryPatchLove ($1.99).


And then, for little to no money, you have a Mandy Moore-inspired personalized bomber jacket. Plus, you can own the feeling of telling people that you made it yourself!
