Maybe it’s the classic silhouette, or perhaps it’s the easy styling that sways it, but either way there’s got to be a reason why the bomber jacket just keeps on coming back around. Year after year and season after season, we see another influx of the bomber jacket in every texture, print and form imaginable. The classic padded bomber jacket in black or khaki never did quite go away and has been doing the rounds of the fashion industry ever since it first struck popularity back in the 90s, but over the past decade or so, we really have seen it all when it comes to the bomber jacket. From the satin bomber jacket to the fur bomber jacket to the camouflage and metallic, there’s few styles that the bomber jacket can’t get away with it, and that’s why it’s such a classic, timeless piece when it comes to defining your wardrobe essentials. Trust us when we say that no wardrobe is complete without a classic bomber jacket hanging up in there.
With a bomber jacket, the styling possibilities truly are endless! We’re not kidding when we say that the bomber jacket literally goes with just about anything. From jeans to a-line skirts to skinny jeans to skater dresses to jumpsuits to shorts, the bomber jacket is quite literally the jacket that just keeps on giving. The beauty of the bomber is that it can be styled up or down, depending on what vibe you’re after. Opt for the classic black bomber jacket teamed with high waist jeans and a tee for a sportier look, or experiment with a textured satin bomber jacket over evening wear to nail party wear this season. When building up your wardrobe, it’s important to build a foundation of versatile, timeless pieces and the bomber jacket really is a true fashion essential, found draped across the shoulders of everyone from Kim Kardashian to Gigi Hadid on a daily basis.
A common misconception about the bomber jacket though, is that it’s a spring/summer piece not suitable for the cooler months. So we’re here to say a big fat no to the idea that the bomber jacket can’t be worn in autumn/winter and show you why you absolutely need a bomber jacket in your wardrobe this season. We need to all remember that bomber jackets were first and foremost a military jacket before they eventually became a fashion statement and part of popular culture and apparel in their later years. Originally named a ‘flight jacket’, the (now) bomber jacket was originally created for military pilots and was designed specifically to handle the cooler temperatures found at higher altitudes. So that being said, you certainly should not be throwing the bomber jacket to the back of your wardrobe the moment November arrives, because the bomber jacket is warmer than you think! So while we’re not advising you to step out into a snowstorm in a T-shirt and your bomber jacket, what we are telling you however, is that the bomber jacket can be layered up, just like you would with any other outerwear piece. The bomber jacket naturally come in a slightly oversized fit, so if you want to nail layering this season, then size up and throw a bomber on over a roll neck jumper, or a classic hoodie for the perfect laidback luxe daytime style.
