I don’t understand the reason for the name, I will concur, but regardless, bomber jackets are a great transition piece for winter to summer. Not quite as demure as a jean jacket, yet not as hardcore as a leather jacket, bomber jackets are the perfect balance between the seasons and styles. All the stores are selling them and “It Girls” like Emma Roberts, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin (and of course, me) are wearing them, so that means that you have to start partaking in the trend too.
You can match a bomber jacket with any outfit, as either a statement or a complimenting piece. Since they can also be worn by men, this piece is often used as a tool for feminist expression. Cool and daring expressions can be printed across the back, as you can see in some of the inspiration below, and I would recommend you make that the stand out part of your outfit. The same goes if your jacket is a bright color! Contrastingly, if you want to sport a simple jacket, you have unlimited options for what you wear underneath it. So get moving, go treat yourself and your closet to a new bomber jacket.
