As a season of renewal, spring signals the return of the flowers. And often, this symbolic rebirth can be seen in the style of spring collections. The obvious trends always seem to pop up, but sometimes when we’re lucky, a familiar favorite will sneak its way back onto the racks. And with a breath of fresh air, this season we’re keeping warm with a classic—the return of the bomber jacket.
Their name is deceptively daunting, because even though these lightweight jackets originally found their place in military fashion, their simple design has made them iconic in popular culture all around the world. Originally bomber jackets came in a military variety, covered in neutral colors and inexpensive hardware, but this season they’ve been revamped with fresh colors and fresh prints. And they’re not just trendy; they’re quite functional too. Made of lightweight cotton, with a waterproof shell, this jacket can shield you from the elements while keeping you cool. Simple and absolutely unisex, these jackets may be the most versatile pieces you find this season.
