Spring 2016 Fashion Trends: Bomber Jackets

And the best part is, it literally goes with EVERYTHING.

OK, we know we already broke down the must-have items for your spring 2016 wardrobe, but we may have forgotten a few select pieces, namely, the bomber jacket.

Not to be confused with the varsity jacket, this versatile topper is one of spring 2016's hottest fashion trends, and can be seen on the shoulders of pretty much every It girl imaginable: Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Zendaya, to name a few.

What's great about the bomber jacket is that it can be worn with virtually anything: for a model-off-duty look à la Kengi, throw your coat over a T-shirt and leggings and finish things off with another hot spring/summer trend, white sneakers. If you're not a leggings fan, opt for a skirt or skinny jeans instead.

For the transitional weather, you can use your bomber jacket as part of your layering strategy — think dress shirt underneath a cozy sweater underneath the bomber. Wear this with skinny pants to not overwhelm your frame.

When the days get a bit warmer, wear your bomber with your fave pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a crop top. Add in a baseball cap or dad hat for good measure. Or, throw it over a midi dress and add some edge with a pair of booties (this also makes a very good going-out ensemble.)

And don't be afraid to shop the men's section if you'd prefer an oversized or baggier fit.
