The legendary ‘Bomber Jacket’ has decided to enter this year’s fashion forecast. Designed to be worn more than a few feet above the air, this jacket is easy on the eye, definitely in this year’s trend forecast, and it’s meant for both sexes.
The bomber jacket was originally designed for pilots (which explain why it’s also called a flight jacket.) Of course apparel wouldn't let this design go unnoticed. Pilots wore these jackets to stay warm, as most airplanes didn't have enclosed cockpits during World War I. It’s a pretty neat jacket – it’s short, tight around the waist, and zips up.
This jacket is similar to the football jacket in terms of size, as well as the old school jean jacket. The difference comes in the material and the visual design of the jacket itself. Other than old school jean jackets, it’s fitted at the wrists plus it’s not made out of jean material. All in all, it’s great outerwear for winter’s cold, windy days. It keeps out the cold, whilst looking put-together and fashionable.
Whenever you decide to go season shopping for winter clothing, keep an eye out for these jackets. It's an all time classic, to own one would definitely be a win.
