How to Wear a Bomber Jacket Like a Boss

A new take on a fall classic

By Gabi Meyers | Last Updated: Feb 22 2019

You guys know our bomber love runs deep at SG HQ. The style seamlessly pairs with outfits for all occasions, so it’s worth a hanger in your dorm room closet and, later, in the front hall closet of your grown man™ home. Our advice? K.I.S.S. – keep it simple, sweetheart. A nylon bomber jacket is sure to cover your basic needs:

1) provides warmth, 2) has pockets, and, 3) goes with everything in your wardrobe so you don’t weigh down your suitcase with fifteen other lightweight jackets when you travel.

Living in a colder climate? Opt for a style lined with flannel or Borg to keep you looking cool till the return from Christmas break, when you have to break out the real winter coat *shudders*.

A bomber is the throw-on-and-go layer that meets the requirements for every typical college situation you could possibly face.
