The Bomber Jacket Takes Flight

Originally worn by military pilots, the bomber jacket would become part of pop culture apparel since the 40’s and onwards. Remember the movie TopGun? Well thanks to that movie and countless other 80’s tv shows the bomber jacket became a style statement rather than a necessity for pilots in cold weather and high altitudes. I like to think that fashion repeats itself. It’s a known fact that fashion trends of the past eventually make their way back to being in trend today. And if the trend or the clothing piece neither ends or doesn’t go out of style then it is considered “Classic.”

The bomber jacket or flight jacket has become the new statement piece of the military trend. Not only does it come in the traditional military green, but now you get it a satin material, quilted effect, and even reversible. I’m in love with the classic military green bomber jacket especially the one I had bought recently from Asos, but I’ve also had my eye on an embroidered bomber jacket that is a little out of my comfort zone, but I’m willing to give it a try. I feel that the bomber is going to be the “New” leather jacket. The bomber gives off an effortless cool vibe like the leather jacket would. I recommend if you don’t feel that you could rock the leather jacket then opt. for the bomber.
