Casual: Bomber Jacket

When stepping outside on a hot or cold day, outerwear is worn to protect us from the various elements of Mother Nature. Outwear pieces like jackets and coats are worn as protection against the potential downfalls of rain and snow, heat, and wind.

Each season offers subtle differences between these jackets and coats. For example, thinner jackets and coats are worn in the fall. In contrast, thicker coats created from heavier materials provide warmth and heat during the winter. Jackets created from thinner materials are worn during the spring. In addition, spring jackets act as water resistant agents against heavy rainfalls and storms. During the summer, less is better. Jackets are only worn during evening hours or in rain showers.
