Bomber Jackets for $60 & Under

 

 

 

 

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.
