MYNT NEWS: Bombs Away!
Posted: Sep 12 2014
Say good-bye to last year’s moto and varsity jacket styles, and hello to this year’s bomber jacket trend. The look started on this season’s runways (we can thank Tracy Reese and Marc by Marc Jacobs) and already has celebrity fans like Cara Delevingne, Taylor Swift and Emma Roberts.
So what defines a bomber jacket? The overall look is slouchy, with elasticzed cuffs and waistband. The cut is always short, resting atop the hip. The style can vary with either a zipper or snaps up the front. Another take on the bomber is contrasting sleeves.
The slouchy nature of this jacket can make it perfect to wear with skinny jeans or trousers. The new iterations are done in dressier fabrics, like our Vera Bomber and Chyna Mesh Bomber, which make it a perfect night option. Ditto for printed versions like the Alia Printed Bomber.
The bomber has staying power and is a great investment piece that will carry over into fall. So shop our collection of plus size bomber jackets.
