As the temperature continues to dip, coats and jackets are quickly becoming a non-negotiable when it comes to winter layering. And, lucky for us, one of our favorite outerwear trends to come out of the most recent pre-fall collections just happens to be one that we can all start wearing right now. That's right: We're talking about the forever-sporty, off-duty favorite, bomber jacket.

Reminiscent of military pilot style, this easy piece is perfect for those on-the-go moments. Not to mention that it's a really good way to rock the athleisure trend while still looking pulled together (and decidedly not like you're coming straight from the gym!)

Check out some of our favorite designer styles from pre-fall here, and shop the trend for yourself below.

Alexander Wang makes the bomber edgy with metal eyelet detailing. Pair this style with an LBD and heels or ankle booties for an awesome winter date-night look.

Burberry goes classic with an army green style in a slightly oversized fit. A true classic, this style works well for grabbing coffee with your best friends on a frigid morning.

For a little more coverage, go with a longer style--like this one from Diesel Black Gold. It's perfect for those extra blustery days of winter.
