Unbuckle your seatbelts because these bombers are super popular when it comes to military chic.

This cool pilot-inspired style is most popular in urban areas, with the highest search index in New York City.

"As the trend continues to grow, the jacket is evolving and taking on new forms," the Google report found. "With consumers becoming more interested in bomber jackets for warmer seasons, they are looking for different variations of the style."

And when it comes to colors, black is at the top, but pink and green are not far behind.

"Searches for lightweight materials and shades of pink are experiencing higher growth, year over year," mentioned Google.

Off-the-Shoulder Tops

It's all about giving that cold shoulder these days, but in the best way possible — thanks to off-the-shoulder tops and dresses.

This bohemian-inspired style has seen its search volume continue to increase over the past year. In fact, off-the-shoulder styles have seen a 347 percent growth in the U.S. since last December, and it really hit its stride this spring in the marketplace.

"It’s a style that can work for anytime, any event, and any age," noted the report. "This trend is being embraced by all and adapted for anything. Regardless of whether clothing is maternity, plus size, for the beach, or for kids — consumers are looking for trendy solutions."

When it comes to off-the-shoulder styles, think everything from blouses to dresses, and even bikinis. And don't be afraid to have some fun with this style by choosing bold colors, or patterns like florals or stripes.

Meet the jumpsuit's shorter sister: the romper. This cool and comfortable style is like a fun, flirty dress, but with shorts. It makes getting dressed in the morning easy — all you need is this one item, shoes, maybe a jacket and you're out the door. It's really that simple.

While the romper has been popular in Google searches since 2014, it's seen a steady rise into 2016.

"The playsuit/romper was already seeing high search interest in cities such as Omaha, Iowa City, and Lubbock by May 2015," explained Google. "By May 2016, rompers and playsuits have become more of a mainstream item."

And while you may think there's a time and place to wear shorts, that's not the case with the romper, which seems to fit all needs and seasons according to the report.

"Interest for rompers/playsuits in dressy materials such as silk, satin, velvet and sequins is growing, while top search associations include 'wedding,' 'formal,' and 'fancy,' Google found. "Consumers are giving their nod of approval for rompers and playsuits as formal attire."

Perhaps this is the one item you really do need in your closet!
