Fall Essential: The Bomber Jacket

There's only one way to layer in style this fall, and that's with a bomber jacket. Most versions are just heavy enough to provide the necessary warmth as temperatures drop but they're light enough to allow some creativity with your styling underneath.  With so many bomber options on the market, you can keep it simple with basics and neutrals or take a chance on brighter colors and prints like the Shades of Grey jacket shown above. Paired with a graphic tee, skinny denim, and loafers, a bomber adds that perfect streetwear touch to your look without making your outfit too trendy.  Whether it's a solid or print, it's all about your preference and comfort level in risk taking. Whatever you decide, it's a must that you have at least one hanging in your closet for the autumn season.
