Bomber jackets have been a cult favorite in the recent years, only now gaining a rise in popularity thanks to the ubiquitous styling of Monica Rose (she dresses the Kardashians and Gigi Hadid) and Gucci’s quirky Pre-Fall collection. This season’s outerwear du jour is the satin bomber, a sporty silhouette given a luxe update with lots of sheen, a vintage feel, and a little bit of Asian flavor. Wear them oversized, draped around your shoulders, or around your waist, no matter how you cut it you and bae can both benefit from the bomber.
Level 1: If you’re dipping a toe into this trend, get a standard issue olive green bomber. It goes with everything and gives your outfit that athleisure touch we all crave.

Level 2: Embroidery is big this season, and so is the statement you make when you wear something like this. After all, who could forget how we swooned over Ryan Gosling in the movie Drive, with only nothing but the scorpion-embroidered bomber jacket to satisfy our sartorially-pleasing movie protagonist needs.

Level 3: This is where we get a little creative. If your man is on the experimental side, procure a pair of painted jackets in muted hues. Not only will you stand out in a sea of neutrals, the unexpected pastels put you on every fashion photographer’s radar. And we all love a good OOTD, right?
