Fall is right around the corner, but it's not quite time to take out your sweaters and puffy coat just yet.

So, what do you wear in this so-called seasonal transition? Meet the bomber jacket.

This pilot-inspired jacket can be worn over dresses, paired with skirts or topped over your favorite pants-and-shirt combo. It will instantly add an element of cool to any look. It's no wonder that it's a favorite jacket choice for stars like Gwen Stefani.
