Although the bomber jacket certainly isn’t a new trend, it’s taken on a modern twist and is here to stay. Forget the classic utility style; it’s all about detail this year. We’re talking oversized silhouettes, bolder shapes, super long sleeves, cropped cuts and embroidery – you name it, these jackets can do it, working just as well with a slip dress as with a pair of skinny jeans. Wonderfully versatile, bomber jackets are the perfect throw-on-and-go wardrobe piece, and we can’t wait to layer up in the colder months. See which pieces we can’t get enough of and recreate them to suit your own personal style.
