Please excuse my cheesy title. Bomber jackets have been and will continue to be a massive trend in both men and women’s fashion. Google’s 2016 Fashion Trend Report even went as far as to say that the bomber jacket was the trend of 2016. I am definitely a participant in this trend, and I have several bomber jackets that I wear on a regular basis (as you can see in the pictures).
Bombers have evolved since the trend came into style, and interestingly enough, many women’s bomber jackets are shifting to a more masculine style, and vice versa. Some main appeals of bombers are how easy they are to style, and how significantly they can add edge to a basic outfit. They are also sold at pretty much every major clothing store, from H&M to Topman to Sak’s Fifth Avenue.
Men can style a bomber with a casual top, jeans, and sneakers, or with a button-down, trousers, and boots or oxfords for a more formal look. Another great aspect of the bomber trend is that they come in a wide range of colors and materials, which makes them very versatile and efficient. Many trend predictors expect that a longer version of bomber jackets will become more popular in 2017, which I am very interested to try out. If you’re looking to upgrade your wardrobe, dive into the bomber trend before it’s too hot to wear them!
