The verdict is in: say goodbye to your leather biker and get on board with this season's key piece - the bomber jacket. Reimagined in luxurious silk at Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent's recent menswear shows (talk about boyfriend dressing) and seen on the shoulders of every in-the-know fashion insider and model, what was once a staple for WWII pilots has swiftly transformed into a wardrobe classic. The beauty of the bomber is the variety of incarnations it takes - from utilitarian denim to sleek leather and casual nylon - it's a piece that adds a sports-luxe bent to any jeans and tee combo or instant throw-on cool to an otherwise pretty dress or skirt.
