In the spirit of the the Mid-Century modern motifs
throughout the Spring and Summer looks, we're going to piggy back off of it with a side note of sorts. Post-war America saw an advance in automotive and aeronautical creations that were available to the public, and so spurred a growth in styles that were functional with these activities.

Sure enough, the bomber/biker/cruise jackets are back in full force with new and improved silhouettes and luxe materials. Lookbooks across the fashion spectrum are featuring this style move in their late Summer and Pre-Fall lines to make for some easy transitioning as the weather starts to cool down again. Many are introducing hybrids of the different jackets to provide a conglomerated look that embodies the trend entirely.

There will be no shortage of choices for you with this look, it'll all come down to the amount of money you're willing to spend and the kind of look you really want to go for. My words of wisdom would be to stick with what you know or what you're passionate about; for example, don't get a biker jacket if you don't know the first thing about bikes. And if you are fortunate enough to have grandparents who are veterans, ask them if you could sport their jackets (the real thing is always the best), just remember to respect and protect it with your life.
