Just because it’s almost summer doesn’t necessarily mean that you should stash your jackets in storage until next year. A good jacket is an essential component of a man’s wardrobe, offering both functional and aesthetic benefits. It adds another layer to your outfit, while also protecting you from rain and the elements. So, what are some stylish, trending jackets?
If there’s one jacket that shouldn’t be overlooked, it’s the blazer. Not to be confused with a sports coat or suit jacket, this versatile choice of outwear can be worn for all occasions, both formal and casual. Blazers are dressier than sports coasts but more casual than suit jackets. So regardless of the occasion, you can count on a blazer offering the perfect blend of casual and formal style. You can even wear it with jeans for a truly modern appearance that’s sure to turn heads.
Another essential jacket for men is the windbreaker. Typically made of a lightweight synthetic material, it’s ideal for warm weather. Best of all, however, windbreakers are often made of waterproof, or at least water-resistant, materials. If there’s rain in the forecast for your area, you may want to grab a windbreaker instead of different jacket that may not hold up so well under moisture.
Military-style jackets have become increasingly popular in recent years. Featuring multiple jackets, both at the bottom and chest area, it’s the perfect choice for on-the-go men who are looking for a functional, stylish type of outwear. You can find military jackets available in a wide variety of colors, ranging from traditional colors like black and brown to more modern colors like gray, taupe, forest green, navy and more.
Leather Bomber Jacket
Of course, you really can’t go wrong with a bomber jacket made of 100% genuine leather. Leather bomber jackets first appeared during World War I, during which the Air Force gave them pilots and crewmembers to keep them warm. While leather bomber jackets are rarely used for this purpose today, they’ve become an iconic garment in the world of fashion. If you’re going to buy a bomber jacket, though, make sure it’s made of genuine leather and not “faux” leather. Genuine leather is softer, more durable, and looks better. You can expect to pay a bit more for a genuine leather bomber jacket as opposed to a faux leather jacket, but most people will agree that it’s well worth the investment.
