The bomber jacker has emerged as the unexpected MVP on the street-style scene recently, and we kind of can’t stop talking about how excited we are. Whether worn super-oversized with arms rolled up or shrunken ’90s-style, these guys work just as well with a slinky dress as they do with a pair of shredded jeans—and they’re also really, really comfortable which is always a win.
Plus, a good bomber encompasses just the right amount of tomboy and streetwear, both of which are finding their way into women’s fashion right now, and they’re available pretty much anywhere, at every price. Personally, we suggest sourcing a great vintage find (in a shade like rose gold or blue satin) to pair with your newer pieces. In fact, the bomber jacket tends to look best when it’s a little worn in, and not too perfect.
