It’s that time of the year when you’ll wear a slip dress, but probably carry a cardigan for later. Autumn is fast approaching, and that’s exactly why there’s never been a better time like now to rock the most Google’d fashion trend of 2016.
This year is all about bomber jackets, ladies and gentleman.
The search engine’s fashion trends report cites this wardrobe staple as the most sought after piece, owing to the likes of Kanye West, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Rihanna, and basically every other celebrity on the circuit.
What’s more, it’s the ones in black or pink that are flying off the shelves, and much like summer boots broke the rules of fashion this year, lightweight bomber jackets are challenging the norms to become an all-year-round must-have, too.
So, are you ready to get with the IT crowd and snag your own? Let’s shop:
Givenchy, Black Constellation Bomber Jacket
Looking for something that’s geek chic, and still pretty badass? Well, this one would be the perfect match. The graphic constellation pattern is reminiscent of the Big Bang, while the rib knit on the collar, cuffs, and hem, along with the crystal cut detailing add to the edginess of this designer bomber jacket.
Camilla, Printed Stretch Bomber Jacket
Camilla Franks has become very popular for her graphic designs, and this jacket only reaffirms our sense of loyalty towards her creations. A perfect way to do bomber jackets during the day, ditch the old-school cardigan and amp up your style quotient with this statement piece.
31 Phillip Lim, Black Tulle And Lace Gathered Bomber Jacket
Looks nothing like a bomber jacket but fits exactly like one, the unique use of black tulle and lace in this creation is a great way to stand out when working the popular trend. With shorts, worn over trousers or denims, or even paired with a flirty skirt, this one’s totally worth your money.
Alexander Wang, Pink Souvenir Bomber Jacket
After black, it was the pink bomber jackets that seemed to be among the most searched for. So, here’s our recommendation for the glamorous fashionista. Do it in satin with this subtle version by Alexander Wang; it’s feminine, sophisticated, versatile, and just the right shade of pink. We’d totally wear it with leather pants, or a tribal print maxi.
Stella McCartney, Multicolor Jacquard Cat Bomber Jacket
Quirky done right, that’s what this jacket is all about. Call us the cat lady if you will, but this feline-inspired creation is one we definitely want to own this season. Thank you, Ms McCartney, for an embroidered masterpiece.
JW Anderson, Blue Floral Splatter Cropped Bomber Jacket
From cropped tops to bombers, the way to rock high-waisted bottoms or flaunt that mid-riff is to go the JW Anderson route. It’s a work of art, really; the gorgeous royal blue base serves as the perfect contrast for those glossy florals and metallic accents. The spread collar keeps it formal, as does the overlap zipper enclosure.
31 Phillip Lim, Cream Woven Bomber Jacket
The semi-sheer weave of this jacket makes us think, here’s an updated version of the one Carrie Bradshaw made famous on SATC. Simple, understated, elegant, chic—yep, ticks all the right boxes.
