You're the Bomb.com! How to rock the Bomber Jacket.
Welcome to my first blog post!
Here in Lake Charles today it is raining, muggy, and all around nasty. And I love it! Days like today make me want to cuddle up with a cozy blanket on the couch and watch House Hunters International.
However, it's Wednesday and we all have things to do outside of the comfort of our living rooms. And when I have to get out in this weather I usually grab my trusty bomber jacket!
Bombers have been around since the 1930s starting with our guys in the sky to wear while (you guessed it) flying Bombers. They were originally leather and was a right of passage for airman who passed basic training. Over the years they've become more versatile in looks and materials, and civilian friendly. John Wayne wore one while starring in Flying Tigers. Ben Affleck wore his while pulling at our heart strings in Pearl Harbor. DJ Khalid wears "another one" everywhere he goes. And Karamo Brown has one for every transformation in Queer Eye.
It's a great staple to have in your closet. It can be paired with any button down shirt, graphic tee, or even your crisp white t-shirt. Fall is here (although it may not feel like it for folks here in the South) this is a great thing to have when you don't know what the day has in store for us weather wise!
