16 Bomber Jackets to Fight the Fall Chill

Bomber jackets, like the one Tom Cruise wore in Top Gun, are a trend that keeps cropping up on the runways. Originally designed for pilots during World War I, the extended neckline, tight cuffs, and webbed stitching at the bottom were created to ensure as little wind as possible got into the jackets during flight. Now, the bomber-style jacket has been re-imagined into a cool-girl staple. This spring, Victoria Beckham put her chic touch on the silhouette by adding a tiny skirt and booties, while Balmain offered a more casual take on the trend. Starting with Alexander McQueen as our inspiration, we’ve gathered sixteen bombers that will make you look cooler than Tom riding his motorcycle into the sunset.
