Don't call it a comeback... because 'it' never really left but man oh man, bomber jackets are back - in a HUUUUGEEEE way! They were the sleeper hit of 2015 - smatterings of the vintage-inspired jacket sprung up here and there in the street style slideshows but then BAM! they were seen on the sinuous backs of models, musicians and mortals everywhere.
I first sung praises of the swishy staple in the summer of 2014. And I still feel some type of way about it. You see, a bomber jacket works with everything. Tuxedo pants. A slip dress. Distressed denim. A mini-skirt. Stripy sweaters. A ball gown. Everything, I tell you!
But as I learned in my collegiate years, it's bad writing to tell and not show you. To prove bomber jackets are the wardrobe staple you never really knew you needed, here is a slideshow of all the bad bitches in styles that run the gamut from understated olive (haaayyy RiRi!) to a flamethrower-printed Givenchy (push thru, Kendall!) to a pretty peachy pink number (Soo Joo FTW!).
If the slideshow thingamadoodle convinced you to spend your hard-earned coins on a bomber, here are 12 of the coolest styles to shop right now!
