OutFit: Bomber jackets
When bomber jackets first arrived, they were strictly utilitarian military wear. Their popularity among civilians grew quickly, however, and they became a wardrobe staple for both men and women.
Today, bomber jackets have morphed into many forms, but the one to watch this season is in color. From magenta to sunflower yellow, colorful bomber jackets made of leather or cotton are making a splash.
The jackets tend to be more fitted, the hue more bold and the buttons and zippers more pronounced.
Its availability at an affordable price makes this must-have jacket even more desirable.
Tough yet feminine, a colorful bomber jacket bridges the gap between daytime casual and nighttime fun.
