Fall 2016 Trends: 6 Bomber Jackets That Are The Bomb Dot Com

If you haven’t run into one of these jackets yet, you’ve totally been slacking on your fall shopping. The bomber jacket is perhaps the biggest fall 2016 trend and with good reason. Bomber jackets are the best way to make a fashion statement and that fashion statement is ‘I’m cool AF.’ Because there are so many bomber jackets on the market and you’ve been slacking on shopping, I’m here to help you narrow down which jacket fits your style the most. So for your consideration, here are six different bomber jackets that are the bomb dot com.  

1. Minimal, Functional, Fashionable

This style might be plain but boy is it powerful. A plain bomber jacket in a dark or neutral color can be worn in pretty much every imaginable fashion situation. Dress it up with a sleek slip dress, or dress it down with a plain white T and an A-line skort.

2. Risk Taker, Rump Shaker

Perhaps the polar opposite for the Minimal, Functional, Fashionable look, this Risk Taking bomber jacket will stop the show. This is the perfect going out piece for when you’re feeling a little chilly but still want to look really hot. Wear it with a body-con dress, choker, and a pair of Chelsea boots.

Because we already know that shopping exclusively the women’s section is absolutely bogus, head over to the other side of the aisle to find the bomber jacket of your dreams. If you’re looking for a more dapper, “menswear” inspired look, find a classic bomber jacket with quilted texture and pair it with a denim button down and black jeans or slacks. Throw on your favorite dad hat for extra measure.

4. Top Gun

If you guys are not getting down to The Get Down on Netflix you are really messing up. Because there is so much fashion inspiration in every episode of this incredible show. The transition from disco to hip-hop involved more than just music - it was also all about the clothes. Loud fringe silhouettes transitioned into what we would now call streetwear. So let that principle guide you when you’re looking for a new bomber jacket. This classic Adidas bomber jacket is a throwback from the early days of hip-hop where bomber jackets and track suits were what people were wearing to The Get Down.

6. Pretty In Pink
