The bomber jacket is here to stay, it is the must have jacket of the season and the perfect throw-it-on piece. The bomber can rescue any outfit, and adds an instant cool factor. It is not solely an off-duty piece, pair it with a voluminous skirt or dress. The bomber jacket can also be worn with a classic white shirt and jeans or wear it as I have with an all black outfit and a DIY distressed pair of jeans.
