The Best Bomber Jackets for Spring

Ahead, 9 styles to top off your look.

As far as always-versatile, wear-with-everything jackets go, the bomber makes a strong case for the top spot. It’s the reason this gender-inclusive silhouette turns up time and time again on the runways, somehow always feeling fresh and covetable each season.

The spring collections were unsurprisingly rife with them, showing up at streetwise design staples (Balenciaga, Chopova Lowena and Céline among them) and more straight-laced, feminine-leaning mainstays (Dries Van Noten, Max Mara, Ralph Lauren) alike.

From classic, army-adjacent options to remixed versions done by fashion up-and-comers, we’ve assembled our favourites for your perusal.

Awake x Alpha Industries MA-1 Bomber Jacket

You can never go wrong with an original, and it doesn’t get more authentic than Alpha Industries, a brand that was founded as a military apparel purveyor.

Here, its signature MA-1 style gets reimagined in a collab with AWAKE: primary-hued knit trim, a decidedly un-warlike accoutrement, somehow feels totally on brand.

If we could think of one style objection to the classic bomber shape, it’s that it’s sometimes just the opposite, a little bit shapeless.

This shine-forward Levi’s version takes care of that potential issue with built-in gathers along the arms for a more fitted, pre-styled look.
