The bomber jacket is officially a staple jacket for your closet.  These are not last years letterman or varsity jackets.  These are old school shaped, vintage-esque, pieces of yummy.

During WWII American soldiers commissioned bomber jackets to be made from silk of the old parachutes to commemorate their days fighting the war.  These gorgeous jackets filled with the most unbelievable embroidery and colors.  The soldiers of the Vietnam and Korean wars followed suit.  These lovely jackets are known as the Sukajan.  Read the full story here...

The vintage bomber was taken over by the skin heads, ska boys, and 80s the fashion scene and we are so happy they are back.  The relaxed shape is perfect for fall coziness with a fashion edge. 

Pair your new find with a great jean, pencil skirt or anything you can imagine.  How dreamy would this Sukajan look over a gown!?

Bombers are perfect for the crisp days of fall and the chilly days of winter.  You can layer them with turtlenecks, sweaters and scarves.  Just keep one part of your outfit more fit to the body for a chic silhouette. 

Happy hunting!
