Splurge/ Steal: The Black Quilted Bomber Jacket

Wednesday, October 05, 2016

The bomber jacket, a throwback style from the late '80s and early '90s, has emerged as on of the hottest trends of the year. And, like any crazy-popular trend, it's available in a huge variety of materials, colors, and prices.

Although military-style khaki green, varsity-inspired, and embroidered seem to be the big hits, I've been gravitating toward simpler designs. I really love the Acne Studios Azura Boiled Wool Bomber and Topshop's super streamlined satin option. I'm also deeply in love with the black quilted bomber jacket with goldtone hardware. So chic. So Saint Laurent, right?

Now the real dilemma: to splurge, or to steal? One of these black quilted bombers will set you back nearly $500. The other, a mere $110. Can you tell which one's which? Take your best guess, then click each to reveal the price. Happy shopping!
