The bomber jacket: it’s the bomb dot com

We’ve seen it just about everywhere this season – celebrities’ Instagram accounts, street style and even the runway – the bomber jacket.

The versatility of this androgynous jacket is quickly becoming a spring fashion phenomenon. It’s lightweight, stylish and the best alternative for when the weather turns on you.

Classic versions of the bomber come in olive green, black, gray and burnt warm colors. Let’s just say it’s the tomboy and laid-back version of the trusty leather jacket.

However, that’s not to say prints and patterns aren’t popular and readily available, too.

After several runway shows this season, people couldn’t wait to get their hands on bombers of all varieties. And there’s no wonder why.
