Bomber Jackets Anyone?

In Fall of 2015 we witnessed the return of the bomber jacket. If you listened to 1990s rap music, you may refer to it as an “O.P.P.” jacket representative of the 90s anthem, “You Down Wit’ OPP?” But we truly owe the military for the original style and design of this jacket. Referred to as the “MA-1” flight/bomber jacket, designed circa 1950, it was designed with the needs of a military pilot in mind. Initially the jacket came in midnight blue or army green with a bright orange lining. While this wasn’t the first bomber jacket design, this was the first to have a knit collar which has clearly been a crowd pleaser based on it’s 60+ year longevity in street style and fashion.

Enter Fall 2016, the bomber has evolved and is still proving itself to be a wardrobe staple. With fun, bold color choices, a variety of fabrications and intricate embroidery; these trendy and affordable bomber jackets are sure to keep you warm, stylish and on trend this season.
