Whether satin, leather, velvet or embellished, the bomber jacket is dominating 2016. This season’s staple piece has been featured on countless runways, including multi-colored renditions by Paris-based collective Vetements, metallic numbers from Gucci and a tantalizing leather option from Maison Margiela.

The bomber embrace has also extended to street-style scenes across the globe, paired with everything from athleisure apparel on the streets of Manhattan to whimsical gowns during Paris Fashion Week. The bomber is one of the most versatile trends this season.

With countless options at hand, the question remains: How does one incorporate this voguish jacket into their everyday wardrobe? An investment bomber like 3.1 Phillip Lim’s tulle version makes for the perfect closet staple. Its graphite hue complements a wide array of colors, and its tulle material lends itself to both warm and cool weather — rock this jacket all year long.

Gucci, Maison Margiela and Vetements sent bomber jackets down the Fall/Winter 2016/17 runway.

During leisure time, pair your tulle bomber with gray Ivy Park joggers and platform slides from Adidas. Matched with a structured Topshop dress and embellished Rochas flats, the bomber transforms into the perfect workplace statement piece.

A high-neck Martin Grant wrap dress and Aquazzura cage heel equip the jacket for a night out on the town, and an Isa Arfen color block jumpsuit gives it the perfect jolt for lunch with girlfriends.

Or just throw on your favorite denim skirt (try River Island‘s ripped midi) and a pair of Del Toro slippers for a quick shopping haul.

Try these bombers on for size:

Home, chic home.
