As I flipped through magazines while receiving a much needed pedicure, my mom looked over to me and said, "I cannot believe bomber jackets are coming back in style. I actually wore these in HIGH SCHOOL!" As all too common with fashion, what goes around comes around. And this season, bomber jackets are definitely back.
A piece of clothing dating back to World War I is now being seen all over the runways, at shows like Rag & Bone and Kanye West this New York Fashion Week, not to mention celebrities and street style aficionados everywhere. It's the most essential type of lightweight outerwear for the awkward in-between weather about to takeover; you know, the two weeks when you find yourself freezing on your morning commute and sweating by lunch. Plus, this oh-so-versatile jacket works with your best pair of skinnies and heels or chicest pair of Adidas sweats.
