Personal Shopper: An under-$200 bomber jacket for Kayla

Kayla R. wrote, "Hi! I'm looking for a good leather/faux leather jacket preferably under $250. I want one that is fitted and cropped, but not too trendy (so it won't go out of style soon). I want to avoid anything hooded or too bomber-y as well. I've seen a lot of great jackets like this one that fit the bill but are way too expensive. Help! Thanks, Kayla R."

I guess since I was a teen in the late 80s/early 90s, bomber jackets just seem like such a dated, poor choice in fashion. Unless you're a pilot.

I think the bomber jackets are fabulous...they are back from the '80s ladies!!! Thanks for the great choices, as always Outblush!

That is so cute! They would look really cute on these oxford pumps I just bought, like on the side. Thanks outblush always post the best stuff!

You inspired me to start my own "curvy" fashion blog :)

I have #5, and it is the softest buttery, slightly crinkled, leather!

The arms are JUST the right length, which says something, for me. (I'm 5'9", long arms, jackets and coats are SO hard to find that aren't halfway up my wrist.)

I will say that the front pocket does give a little pooch in front of your stomach, simply because it's cut a touch more generous there to accommodate said pockets.
