The Bomber Jacket Lightens Up For Spring

Jessica Baker

Once a staple of fighter pilots, the bomber jacket is finally shedding its military associations for a softer, more feminine look this spring. Cut from lighter fabrics and in pretty shades of pink, cream, and blue, the jacket feels fresh and refined for the season, making it a chic addition to everything from airy sundresses to our polished nine-to-five ensembles. We’re smitten with the bomber’s new makeover, which is why we’re turning the spotlight on three of our favorite styles today.

Nasty Gal Cloud Control Bomber Jacket ($68)
This bomber gets its visual intrigue from a subtle tie-dye print and quilted texture. Keep it the focus of your look by pairing it with off-white hues.

French Connection Renoir Moments Jacket ($148)
Throw this lightweight jacket over a pink blouse and trousers to achieve a bold monochrome look that is right on-point for spring.

J.W. Anderson for Topshop Patent Leather Jacket ($440, available online in Black) shown in Cream
With a patent leather finish, this jacket will lend a futuristic vibe to your seasonal mix. Try it over a black and white graphic dress for an unexpectedly cool evening outfit.
