A classic jacket style is the bomber jacket. Modern twists on the bomber jacket have taken a typically masculine jacket and often convert it into something more feminine and fitted. Many modern jackets featuring some elements of the bomber jacket in a variety of fabrics and styles.
One of our favorite modern twists on the classic bomber jacket style is the Jersey Bomber Jacket by Zooey by Alice Heller. This bomber jacket is available in both black and navy. We love the fact that it isn’t leather the traditional bomber jacket fabric. Since we are always searching for pieces that help you create your own individual style, we were thrilled that this jersey bomber jacket is truly a distinctive piece. With a fold over collar if you decide to button it up all the way or a wide v neck type collar if you don’t. My personal favorite detail is the back which arches up giving it a completely unique surprise in back. Added modern, feminine touches include the oversized buttons, front pockets and a flared waist only in front. This version by Zooey features thick cotton so it is thicker than your basic sweatshirt, but equally soft which makes it a pleasure to wear.
Another alternative to the basic black bomber jacket is a beautiful Motorcycle Sweater by Velvet by Graham and Spencer. The Aspen Motorcycle sweater features an off center zipper all the way up to the top of the sweater. Of course you can’t forget the added details with zipper pockets and epaulets on the shoulders. This sweater still manages to be soft even though it is made with a wool nylon blend. This fabric of course makes it extremely warm! With a cropped length, this sweater really does have a modern, distinctive look and is the perfect piece for winter weather.
We also can’t forget mentioning other jacket alternatives like the Cropped Double Breasted Jacket also by Zooey by Alice Heller. The sister to the Black Bomber Jacket, this jacket features a fitted look with big buttons and a tie belt around the waist with belt loops. With a wide collar and also available in Black and Navy, this jacket is the perfect piece for fall or warmer winter weather. This jacket is also made with the heavy sweatshirt fabric that is so soft and machine washable. This great alternative to the Bomber Jacket is a great modern spin on another classic look of the pea coat.
