the-bomber-jacket

Bomber jackets have been everywhere lately! They’ve been a part of fashion for decades, but have recently made a huge come-back. And according to Google, one of the fastest rising fashion trends. The bomber jacket—or MA-1 if we’re being technical—has a long history that spans from the middle of the 20th Century into today. Starting as a jacket that was used for pilots and the military, the jacket has evolved into an outerwear staple that’s seen high fashion upgrades for both men and women today.

Today, I’m going to show you how I style my bomber jacket, as well as give you some other  of my favorite options. The bombers I’ve found come in a variety of styles and colors;  some are cheaper, and some are a higher price tag if that’s what you’re in to. 🙂 Here are top picks!

1. My Bomber Jacket!

My bomber jacket is from American Eagle and it was $69. I think its a good in between price. It’s amazing quality and I love the embroidered print on the black base.

How I Style It:

I honestly throw this jacket on with just about anything. It dresses up a pair of joggers or dresses down a nice lace dress. It’s just so versatile. Here I kept it super casual with denim shorts, a black graphic tee, a choker, and sneakers.

2. Forever 21 Embroidered Bomber – $32.90

This one is very similar to mine for half the price! Plus, the white panel on the sleeves adds a cool touch!
