As if you needed any reminder that what’s old is new again, allow us to introduce you to the printed bomber jacket. These classic toppers are just the latest item to get the print treatment this spring by designers like Stella McCartney, Jonathan Saunders and Milly.
Yes, bomber jackets were first created for pilots decades ago, but the latest incarnations have serious “notice me” appeal in the form of bright colors and loud prints. Now be forewarned–not all printed bomber jackets are created equal. Some prints are just too out-there and garish to be cool. Luckily, we’ve rounded up eight of your safest bets in the slideshow. (Aviators not included, but you can get an awesome pair here.)
