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.
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.
