The saying “April showers bring May flowers” has indeed proven to be true as we approach mid-April. Thankfully, today we escaped the rain and the sun was out shining with a whole lot of wind. However, this goes to show how unpredictable spring weather can be. This weather’s inconsistency directly correlates with what we choose to wear on a day-to-day basis, so it is important to have certain pieces in your wardrobe that are useful when the weather takes a turn.

A bomber jacket is a staple piece that every guy should introduce into his wardrobe! This Fashionisto paired his navy blue bomber with a classic black T-shirt. On the bottom, he wore a pair of dark washed jeans, which complemented the dark color of his jacket. He cuffed his jeans and paired his dark brown Sperry Top-Siders to complete his overall casual look, which is perfect for heading to class on this windy day.

Bomber jackets are a perfect addition into any spring wardrobe for countless reasons. They are great for layering if the weather gets a bit chilly when the wind picks up, as shown on a day like today. These jackets are also waterproof, which is a great backup to have, just in case April showers decide to strike. Overall, these jackets tend to be lightweight, which makes them easy to layer and capable of being carried around if it gets too warm out. Due to the outstanding versatility of these bomber jackets, I highly recommend that all you gentlemen go out and find the perfect bomber jacket for this spring!

How To: By sticking with a neutral-colored bomber jacket, incorporating one into any outfit’s color scheme will be seamless. Style your jacket with a pair of jeans or khakis, and if the weather warms up, try layering your jacket on over a basic T-shirt and shorts.
