Best Bomber Jackets for Spring

If there’s one jacket to buy this spring, make it the bomber. Sure, you might be thinking déjà vu as far as shorter spring jackets go, but look closer and you’ll see that this year designers hewed closer to the original style of the aviator jacket with its puffier silhouette and zip sleeve pockets than its varsity-style relation. They also spun it in a variety of different colors and luxe fabrics to create an alternative to your statement coat. Were it not for this neverending winter, we might also have recommended lighter-weight coaches jackets with their point collars and drawstring waists (sure to be a trend amongst the hipster lot), but as it stands, these bombers are arguably the best option for losing some heft from your heavier outerwear and giving one’s wardrobe a colorful, urban kick during these transitional months. Here, our picks for the best bomber jackets you can buy right now.
