Trend Talk: Bomber Jackets

Bomber Jackets



I love a good bomber jacket; I purchased a floral print one from H&M last year on the clearance rack for like $10. I didn’t realize what a precious gem I had just acquired until it quickly became my go -to garment when I wanted a look that was unique, it literally goes with anything. Aside from its versatility i love how it is lightweight and can used as a perfect transition piece, especially in a neutral color. A couple different ways of wearing it include pairing it with:
1.       Boyfriend jeans and a baseball cap for a  sporty chic look
2.       A flared skirt for a more feminine feel
3.       Skinny jeans or track pants for a quick go-to look
4.       Pencil skirt for a modern glam feel


Do you know how the bomber jacket got its start? Well originally the jackets were made to keep pilots warm in their cockpits during WW1. According to WikipediaThe G-1,was a jacket designed by the U.S. Navy  lasted until 1978, when U.S. Congress cancelled it due to its tremendous popular appeal, which was overwhelming the Navy’s supply system. Their popularity evolved into symbols of honor, adventure, and style. Hollywood films like Top Gun boosted sales of the G-1 tremendously, making bomber jackets collector and fashion items”. Fun Fact for ya.
