Who could've predicted that bomber jackets would've made such a crazy comeback in 2016? It seemed like all of a sudden, they were everywhere. Whether they're for fashion or function, it's definitely likely that you'll be able to find some great bomber jackets for 2016 that will keep you warm and stylish all the way through 2017.
According to Google's trends report from August (feels like forever ago), searches for bomber jackets went up 612 percent in 2016, and I think really think we can blame their popularity on none other than Gigi Hadid. 2016 was also the year of Gigi.
The first bomber jacket to grab my attention was an artistic floral one with beautiful embroidery. Shortly after, a pink shiny one from H&M caught my eye. Almost immediately after that moment, I was as obsessed with bomber jackets as everyone else.
In my opinion, this trend won't realistically disappear from sight until summer 2017 when no one really needs an extra layer of warmth, but in the mean time, I'm going to take advantage of this cold weather for the next few months and rock some bomb bomber jackets (sorry, I had to). Here are some of 2016's best bomber jackets.
