Kim Kardashian West Just Endorsed the 2021 Version of the Bomber-Jacket Trend

Kim Kardashian West is clearly a discerning shopper with high-fashion taste and a specific aesthetic, so when she buys into a new or returning trend, it's worth paying attention. Now on to the trend we're referring to. 

Do you recall about 10 years ago when bomber jackets were absolutely everywhere and no other jacket style mattered? It's hard to forget, even though they basically disappeared among womenswear for a while. Now, the fashion crowd is slowly inching its way back to bomber jackets, but they're a bit different these days. Instead of being slim and cropped, they're super oversize. All it takes is that simple difference to look like you're in 2021 as opposed to 2011.

Kardashian West knows this, as she stepped out this week in an oversize bomber jacket (by Balenciaga) of her own. She paired it with loose track pants, a one-shoulder bodysuit, and heeled sock boots.
