As weather goes cooler now, it is time to take your bomber jackets out. These popular and everyday friendly jackets can be quite handy now. 

Bomber jacker trend had started and took the biggest hit in early 2000. Since then, more styles of bomber jackets were introduced and quite popularized.

Traditional pilot style puffers, fitted leather/suede ones or the soft feminine silk jacket in floral prints or embroidery. Baseball jackets, clean cut sporty bombers and furry bombers. There are many kinds are out there now and to choose from and by now everyone probably has one or two pieces of them in their closets.

Although bomber jackets took some trendy elements since, the traditional forms and basic shape still remained unchanged. If you have invested in the basic pieces, you can enjoy them for many years without affected by fast trending. 

 

All said, here are some ways to wear bomber jackets.

 

WITH SLACKS 

Slacks could mean any kinds of casual pants but particularly cropped length at the ankles are the styles we want. Harem or Baggy pants also work.
