This WAiSTEDD Wednesday we are featuring one of the many styles influenced from our country’s servicemen-bomber jacket. These jackets are having a huge fashion moment and are a great addition for the sportswear trend. Going back to James Dean and Tom Cruise, bomber jackets have evolved over the years and now they are revamped and ready to rock.
The great thing about bomber jackets is their variation. You can find them in any color, material, and combo you want. Whether you want to stick with the basic black and white, or venture further into fur, you will be satisfied. For example, if you are looking to add some fur to your closet, the black Dorothy Perkins bomber jacket is your piece. At a great price point, you will be able to dress this jacket up or down depending on what you want. We would suggest pairing it with slip-on sneakers and some boyfriend skinnies for a casual Saturday look.
If you are looking for a staple, the J.Crew or French Connection jackets are perfect. In line with the black and white trend we are seeing continue through winter, these jackets vary with texture and prints. The J.Crew bomber is a classic front zip, while the French Connection plays with asymmetry. The color-blocking and side zip make this a great option for nights out and even the office. We suggest pairing it with ankle length trousers and your favorite heels for a dressy look.
Similar to the J.Crew classic, this Rag&Bone bomber jacket has great shape and contrast. This jacket is a street style staple right now. It incorporates all the aspects of a true military jacket-banded contrasting trim, large pockets, slim fit. Despite being pricey, this is definitely an “investment piece” (that’s how we like to justify expensive purchases). But really, you will have this jacket in your closet forever and we guarantee you will keep going back to this classic.
