Typically, when a fashion trend goes viral overnight, it tends to have a pretty short life span. However, year after year, season after season, there has been one overnight trend in particular that has remained relevant: the bomber jacket.

The seasonless topper became an off-duty-supermodel sensation around 2015. As if they planned it, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid were spotted all over New York and L.A. wearing the trendy jacket. They paired it with sneakers, leggings, and crop tops for running errands and threw it over LBDs and heels for a night out. Affordable retailers quickly caught on, and suddenly everyone was wearing one. 

Since then, the style has prevailed on the runways as designers incorporated it into varying trends each season. No longer is this piece of outerwear only appropriate for an athleisure vibe. It’s a tale of the times and fitting for seasonless, genderless fashion.

Lucky for you, now that the trend has saturated itself fully, bomber jackets are available at every price point. From casual and lightweight to fuzzy and fleece-lined, there are so many bomber jacket styles to choose from. Below, I've outlined 27 of the season's best bomber jackets broken down by micro-trend.
