Fun fact: “'Bomber jackets,' as we've come to refer to them today, were originally known as 'flight jackets' and were created by the US Army Aviation Clothing Board in 1917 to keep WWI pilots warm in the uninsulated, open-air cockpits of the early fighter planes.” Call it a coincidence, but I think the worldwide popularity of Tom Cruise’s latest movie Top Gun had a little something to do with the return of this fashion trend. Either way, bomber jackets are certainly not reserved for men alone. In fact, there are countless ways to wear a wide variety of these styles, silhouettes, and fabrics while embracing your femininity. Try it this season over a midi dress with booties, straight-leg denim and a neutral bodysuit, or a mini skirt and heels to make your man do a double-take this date night.
Bomber jackets are predicted to be the ‘it girl’ fashion trend this fall, so to ensure that you’re set for the upcoming season, we’ve rounded up 17 of our favorite choices. Happy shopping!
