Wear This Jacket if You're Sick of Bombers
Lightweight jackets are the key to making style work for the temperamental weather as winter moves into spring. And sure, bombers are great! Macs and Harringtons, too. But bringing something different into the mix can make your entire wardrobe feel new. Something like a blouson (so called for the way the OG versions "bloused" out from the nipped-in waist; don't let the name scare you). It's the perfect bomber-ish jacket for those days when you're sick of actual bombers. Here are a few of our favorites.
1| J.Crew Blouson Jacket
Navy is the perfect place to start.
2| Très Bien x Polar Skate Co. Velveteen Blouson
If you're going all-in on the blouson move, a teal velveteen stands out from the pack.
3| Kent & Curwen Blouson Jacket
The pinstripe pulls any work-ish outfit together.
4| Todd Snyder Shell Blouson Jacket
You can get a little adventurous with your color here, too. A maroon wears just as easily as navy or olive.
5| Vince Bomber Jacket
Vince's jackets always have a tailored and yet very comfortable feel to them. Its blouson—yes, they call it a bomber, but really it's a blouson—is no different.
6| Lanvin Blouson Jacket
Tans and khakis are popular (and easy-to-wear) color options for the style.
7| Prada Blouson Jacket
For the blouson expert, Prada really leans into a modern, structured feel with its take.
8| Tom Ford Nylon Cotton Blouson Jacket
Everything Tom Ford does is good because he just gets it right. The color, the style, the fit, and the feel are always exactly what you'd hope they'd be.
9| Giorgio Armani Suede Blouson Jacket
And for those who go super-luxe only, a suede Armani one is just as good as a more moto-inspired leather jacket.
