Not a fashion crossover we expected!
On Wednesday, Parker hit the SAG-AFTRA picket line on day 104 of what’s become the longest strike in the union’s history. For the sunny but brisk New York City day, she wore a number of her go-to pieces: Light-wash denim cuffed at the hem, a pair of slouchy suede boots, black sunglasses, and a crossbody bag topped off with a quilted bomber jacket.
Turns out the top layer is a $65 men's Dickies jacket, and it’s the same style Pete Davidson wore to host Saturday Night Live earlier this month! (This fashion overlap was not on our 2023 bingo card.)
Bomber jackets, especially ones that are padded or quilted, are a great layer for transitional weather: Just enough protection from cold air without adding a lot of heat or bulk. And they’re surprisingly versatile. You can easily throw a bomber jacket over your workout clothes to run an errand after the gym or to offset something more dressed up, like a long dress, with a casual-cool edge.

The Original: Alpha Industries Scout Lightweight Nylon Bomber Jacket, $150; amazon.com
Dickies Quilted Nylon Jacket
SJP wore the men’s version of this jacket, but there is a women’s fit as well (it’s also $65 and is slimmer through the torso with a shorter length). The men’s version looks cooler, though, with its long length and big hand-warming patch pockets. Unfortunately, the men’s small in navy is sold out at Amazon, but it’s in stock at Dickies. You can get the small in black at Amazon, and it’s on sale for $52.
Alpha Industries Scout Lightweight Nylon Bomber Jacket
Bomber jackets were originally developed for pilots in the U.S. Air Force and Alpha Industries was an early apparel contractor for the Department of Defense — the brand’s MA-1 bomber jacket was put into production back in 1963 before being adopted by civilians as fashion. This streamlined version, the Scout, shares the history but in a longer, more slim-fitting silhouette.
Faleave Cropped Bomber Jacket
This affordable option from Amazon has tonal snaps, stitching, and ribbing that make it look so much more elevated than its price tag would suggest. It comes in eight pretty colors including olive green and light pink. At this price, you can practically afford to collect ‘em all.
Whether it’s the Dickies style Parker and Davidson share or a splurge-worthy fashion girl bomber, add the style to your wardrobe and prepare to be wowed by how often it comes in handy.
