What is a bomber jacket?


Before I explain how to wear this jacket in style, I would like to start by explaining what a bomber jacket is: it is a short jacket without a collar. It is made with nylon and has been a revolution in fashion since the sixties. Over the years it has evolved and reinvented itself with different models such as padded and lightweight.


What is the bomber style?

Since its inception in 1917, the bomber jacket emerged with the function of covering fighter pilots from the cold, since they provide flexibility to move freely. Now, with the passing of time and the evolution of the world, this jacket also had its evolution.


In the 50s, other military forces used it and gave it the style now known, with the plus of better comfort. Alpha Industries was the production company that produced it massively.


So, in the 60s, Leslie Irvin, took her to Hollywood and seized this garment, integrating it in films like “Rebel Without a Cause.” It was until the seventies when this garment was used by everyone, becoming the favorite for its usefulness, comfort, and variety of styles.


Being considered a unisex garment, it is worn on almost every occasion, and over time more and more models have emerged that open a range of options to choose from. I particularly think that just one will not be enough. I want all of them!


How should a bomber jacket look?


This jacket is also known as “the flight jacket” and it is very important to find the balance that balances your outfit to wear it correctly. One option is to wear it with skinny jeans, to play with wide and narrow garments correctly. With this jacket, you will always be in trend.


On the other hand, as for their cuts they should be straight, the shoulders tailored and the length should not be too much. The ideal is up to the waist. In this sense, if you combine it with a t-shirt or a polo shirt you can create an informal look. While if you want something more formal you can wear it with a dress or a skirt in a total look and the jacket of the same color or another that stands out.
