The bomber jacket is one of the top unisex fashions trends of the season, carried by high-end designers and department stores alike. You can guarantee this jacket slung over your shoulders will add a practical edge to any woman’s look.
What inspired this trend? The piece seen on the runway is heavily inspired by the MA-1 military flight jacket that has a bright colored reversible lining to signal a bomber’s location. Military fashions have a way of sneaking into traditionally male styles, but any woman can take on the look. Some designers have feminized the traditional jacket with colorful embroidery – perfect for summer!
The basic structure of most bomber jackets makes them easy transition pieces. You can wear the embroidered bomber to make a statement or wear a simpler one to keep your look fresh and simple. One way to sport this trend is to stay casual. If you are headed out to run some errands on an overcast morning and still want to look put together, pull out your bomber. Pair it with loose fitting high-waisted pants, preferably with a higher hem, an understated tee shirt or tank of your choice and some Nike Cortez’s.
If you are interested in high fashion, go for an eclectic ensemble by mixing fabrics and layers inspired by Resort 2017 fashion. One way you could do this is by wearing a satin or transparent pleated midi dress with some heeled patent leather Nary Janes. Complete this trendy look with some statement fishnets and a neck scarf.
Are you a businesswoman on your way to a meeting? Bomber jackets can make their way into your professional wardrobe seamlessly. The jacket can be thrown over a tailored pair of slacks with a silver or gold blouse and some lace-up pumps. You can even wear a pair of nice dress socks, keeping you comfortable and stylish. Add a silver chain if you want to show some spunk.
