After their several-year hiatus from the big old trend cycle, I’m here to declare that bomber jackets are officially back on the menu for spring/summer 2022. You might be thinking, “But they never went anywhere,” and you’d be right! Bomber jackets have stuck around as a spring and fall outerwear staple, but I’d say they haven’t been a trend piece since 2016 circa the King Kylie era. That is, until now.
Thanks to countless cool designers—including Prada, Versace, Stella McCartney, and more—the jacket style has resurfaced as a wardrobe must-have for spring, and with the help of brands such as Mango, COS, and H&M, it’s accessible to everyone. Celebs such as Rihanna and Hailey Bieber are already backing the silhouette, so consider this your official green light to give it another go.
