If you’re anything like us (and we know you are!), you like to be the first in your friend group to test out a new trend. Come on, we know you were the initial girl to slip into a pair of cool white ankle boots, toss on a fashion puffer, or swing the latest It bag over your shoulder. Well, as we end 2016 and kick off the new year, chances are you’re looking for the next big thing in fashion, right? To help fill us in on what’s going to be massive in the fashion world in the coming months, we chatted with Hailey Baldwin’s stylist Maeve Reilly about the one item worth investing in now. “The next thing is the long bomber,” she said. “I love it for winter when it’s actually cold.” We’re totally on board. While regular bomber jackets will still be around, an updated, longer silhouette feels fresh and different.
