Bombers are taking over the streets and the runway - giving your typical “night-out look” a sporty makeover. With comfort, chic, and cool wrapped into one package, it’s no wonder this is the newest staple to grace our wardrobes. If bombers prove to be just a trend, catch me wearing one far after they’re put in the vault until 50 years from now, because throwing a bomber over your shoulder makes you feel like I imagine Clark Kent feels turning into Superman. From high end to high street, here are 8 of the raddest jackets you’ll want to add to your wish list for the holiday season.
The Arrivals : High End
This New York City brand mixes practicality with fashion-forward in this space-inspired aero bomber. Water repellent and sturdy, yet accented with details, this bomber will have people gawking in awe at your ability to remain fashionable in even the harshest weather.
Alexander Wang : High End
Slightly cropped is in the description of this silk velvet number, resulting in me being more than slightly obsessed with this Alexander Wang piece. Pair with velvet pants and a bralette (as seen above) for the perfect relaxed, model-off-duty look.
Catherine Fulmer : High End
A dash of band-tee trend, a sprinkle of retro, and a whole lot of satin went into this Catherine Fulmer tribute bomber to the late David Bowie. With celebrity exposure from Shay Mitchell and blogger Danielle Bernstein, this Bowie bomber is one you’ll continue to see on news feeds.
Dolce & Gabbana : High End
Sporty never stopped D&G from pulling out all the stops. Masters of adding intricate details to pieces, designers Stefano and Domenico weaved glamour, sparkle, and comfort in their versions of this layering favorite.
Missguided : High Street
Dusty rose and this satin silhouette make for a jacket to not skip over. Lightweight and easy to throw on top of your outfit to class or to the bars, Missguided created a versatile bomber to last you the seasons to come.
Topshop : High Street
Topshop is a pro at taking inspiration from the runways and making pieces that are quality, yet affordable and different. They have many variations of this trend; everything from sequins to patchwork and beyond.
American Eagle : High Street
Layer your favorite comfy tees with American Eagle’s old-school styles of our favorite jacket. They kept it classic in true AE fashion, but their takes are anything but boring.
Urban Outfitters : High Street
Urban has a knack for carrying brands that put their own spin on things, like this Silent + Noise long bomber. Layer while heading to the gym in this brisk November weather or follow the model’s lead and contrast with ripped skinny’s.
This season’s go-to outerwear takes many forms in various lengths, fabrics, and styles. Hop on the bomber train and add a bit of funk to your wardrobe. It looks like this trend is here to stay.
