Zara's Bomber Jackets Are Internet Famous and Selling Out Fast

I've said it before and I'll say it again—in fashion, what goes around always comes back around. No exceptions. Maybe eight years ago, bomber jackets blasted their way onto the style scene when Gucci's dragon-embroidered silk styles became the first in a very long line of cult buys that would follow for the brand. Cue a slew of high-street homages, the most notable coming from Topshop, which proceeded to go big on bomber jackets for the year that followed. I did not buy the Gucci dupe, but I did, however, invest in a burgundy bouclé style Topshop would release a few months later. Edged with leather and boasting a relaxed silhouette, it became my throw-on outerwear of choice for the best part of three years. Then, trends shifted and bomber jackets were replaced by the likes of leather blazers, tweed crops, and the such like. 

Fast-forward a couple of years and I decided it was time to re-home my unworn bomber jacket. Someone bought it on eBay and, I'll be quite honest, I haven't thought about it much since. That was until last September when, just looking at the spring/summer 2023 runways, it became very clear that bomber jackets, just like the one I'd sold, were back at the fore. Slouchy styles dominated designer collections, with everyone from Prada to Loewe showing their appreciation for the cover-up. Recently the high street has been tackling the trend, too. However, of all the brands currently stocking up on bomber jackets, no one is doing them quite like Zara. 



Over the past few weeks, Zara's bomber jackets—specifically its woollen style in grey and cream—have been following me across the length and breadth of the Internet. TikTok, Instagram, WhatsApp groups, everyone is talking about them. Although the initial trending styles have sold out, they are apparently coming back very soon (watch this space). However, upon scanning its new-in section, I noticed that Zara has just dropped a fresh batch of bomber jackets which, if they follow the pattern of their predecessors, will sell out fast. 

Below, I've rounded up the sleekest Zara bomber jackets you can get your hands on now. Of course, I'll update you as soon as any of the OGs make their way back on site, too.
