We're Certain These Are the Best Bomber Jackets to Buy Right Now

PSA: Bomber jackets are this year's solution to tricky transitional weather. No other layer is quite so well-suited to rushed mornings and not-too-cold, not-too-hot climates, especially if you want to look chic as you navigate the changing of the seasons. Bomber jackets are insulating, easy to throw on over anything and incredibly cosy if you choose an oversized silhouette (of which there are many to choose from—more on that later). 

Admittedly, some of the iterations we've spotted recently are less practical than others. But that's only because designers have recognised the aesthetic benefits of the bomber jacket in addition to its obvious comfort; namely that it makes every outfit infinitely cooler. With its sporty shape, ribbed cuffs and nifty zip-up closure, the basic structure of this outerwear style lends itself to quick and fuss-free dressing without compromising on style.

Fashion houses have added an extra dash of creativity to their bomber jacket creations this autumn/winter, playing with supersized proportions, bold colourways and unexpected styling. See for yourself below. Then scroll on to shop the best bomber jackets available right now.

Fashion influencer Sylvie puts a Parisian twist on the trend by pairing her cropper leather bomber with indigo-wash denim, black heels and a simple white T-shirt. It is perfection.
