The 10 Best Bomber Jackets This Fall

Bomber Jackets
There’s no better way to layer this fall than with this wardrobe classic – the bomber jacket. The bomber jacket began as a functional outerwear item for pilots in WWI and has now evolved into a jacket that we often seen on the runway.

It wasn’t until after the Korean War that the bomber jacket began to be worn by civilians rather than just military personnel. Regular people found these jackets to be a practical choice in cold weather months because of their design to combat low temperatures. The bomber jacket saw its popularity boom in the 70s and 80s and has now become a must-have for fashion-minded men and women.

Over the years, the fashion industry has overhauled the bomber and put their own spin on the classic jacket. The fur collars that were worn in WWI and WWII have made a comeback, military patches and embroideries are now popular again, and longline styles have given the bomber a more unique, overcoat look. But, if you’re like most guys and you want your look to be about as classic as the bomber itself, look no further than Tom Cruise in the legendary movie Top Gun. Now that is an example of how to wear a bomber jacket.

When prepping your head-to-toe look, think about pairing your bomber of choice with a solid tee or sweater depending on the weather, distressed jeans, and rugged boots for that fashion-forward fall look. Bomber jackets are great because they can be worn in nearly any setting. Whether you’re bar-hopping with your best buds or it’s date night with your better half, you’ll look cool and well put together with any one of our 10 favorite bomber jackets this fall.
