Sometimes, trendy items buck the regular fashion cycle and end up becoming staple pieces in our wardrobes. One of those items that seems to be standing the test of time is the simple bomber jacket. While the bomber comes and goes as it pleases, it reappears on the scenes just often enough to give it status as an iconic piece.
If you want a new way to dress up that old bomber jacket you have in your closet or a new one you just added to your wardrobe, here are some celebrity takes on the classic piece of outerwear to use as inspiration.
