Bomber Jacket for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Appointment Wear
Wearing bomber jackets for an appointment is not much different than a blazer or any other type of jacket. The bomber jacket is defined as a short jacket with elastic at the waist and cuffs, usually with a zipper.

Since these bomber jackets were originally created for pilots (read men), there is not much shaping to these garments. This could be a good or bad thing depending on your shape and preference. Wearing them to an appointment works well since many offices run on the cooler side.
I’ve never been a cheerleader for the bomber jackets, so this is a newer purchase. The color was what decided it for me.

Nancy’s Bomber Jacket:
Nancy fell in love with this jacket about 20 years ago. The colors and metallicness of it make it so interesting.
Charlotte’s Bomber Jackets:
I like the yellow under this jacket to add some color to the mix (obviously because I used the same color under it for the next post…ha ha…at least I’m consistent).
