Bomber jackets are an incredibly versatile item to have in your wardrobe. They can be dressed up and down and offer a great classic masculine look. For this look book I will be styling two different bomber jackets so that you can find style inspiration from whichever one suits you. One of them is a vintage inspired flight jacket made from nylon and showcases classic features such as a shirt collar and polyester insulation. The other is a black suede bomber jacket with a low-cut standing collar. So here are 5 ways to wear a bomber jacket:
