Bomber jackets are the hottest thing around right now. It is the must have piece this season. There are so many different versions of the bomber jackets there is sure to be one that fits your personality and style.
I wanted to find out where the bomber jacket originated from. I discovered the bomber jacket, or flight jacket has been around for a very, very long time. The bomber jacket goes all the way back to World War 1. The military pilots needed something warm to wear during flight. They were made out of leather because it was durable to stand the weather conditions.
Over the years the bomber jacket has transformed, it wasn’t till the late 60’s to 80’s the bomber jacket became the fashionable item it is today.
I’ve chosen 5 all $60 and under, in different material and colours. There is a cross between more feminine styles to more military to try and cater to everyone. You can wear it over a t-shirt with jeans and sneakers or with a dress. Have fun, don’t be afraid to style your bomber with what you have in your wardrobe.
The Ultimate Bomber Jacket in Jersey – Navy is a classic colour and a popular one. Jersey is very comfortable and therefore practical to wear when you’re on the run.
Lightweight Zipped Sleeve Pocket in pink – not much detail and more feminine because of it’s blushing colour. Made from polyester and lightweight so you can still wear it as the weather gets warmer.
The Boohoo Clean Cotton Bomber Jacket – This one is made from cotton, another one of my favourite materials. This khaki version is more on the military side which is right on trend. I love the zipper details on the sleeves.
The Sophia Velvet Bomber Jacket – Velvet and embroidery on and the front and back. It’s fairly light weight to wear in spring and less puffy on the arms if you don’t like adding bulk to your shoulders.
Ponte in black – Another less bulky jacket. Cute zippers on the sleeves. At $50 it’s a steal. It would be very easy to style this jacket because it’s so versatile.
Which one would you choose? Are you a proud owner of a bomber jacket?
