The 29 Best Bomber Jackets for Any Budget

Yes, the temperatures are getting warmer. However, we all know that the need for an outer layer still exists. Whether it’s because the temperatures drop in the evening or because we spend so much of the day in air-conditioned spaces, it seems we are always reaching for an outer layer.

What if that outer layer could be not only functional but also quintessentially cool and totally on trend for the season? If that option appeals to you, bring on the bomber! Worn by military pilots in the second World War, bomber jackets inherently bring with them a certain clout and authoritative vibe.

This season, the classic is appearing in a slimmer silhouette, fresh fabrics, and dramatic details. The jacket presents an easy way to embrace this season’s sporty chic look in a versatile way. Here, I wore the jacket with jeans and heels. But I could just as easily have thrown it on over a black jersey dress with sneakers.

Much like I did with Monday’s off-the-shoulder tops article, I’d like to share with you the best-of-the-best in bomber jackets across all price points. No matter your budget, you can wear this trend with confidence and coolness! Again, for reference, I’ll define relative price point terms as follows: “steal” indicates a price less than $150, “sensible” equates to a price point between $150 and $500, and anything over $500 is considered a splurge here.

Keep scrolling to browse these bomber beauties… I’m especially excited about how many great steals I found for bomber jackets!

    BIG YEY to bomber jackets! I’ve been obsessed with leather jacket for years now and I think it is getting the same ”problem” with bombers 🙂
    Love your outfit though, so stylish! 🙂
