Welcome to day 3 of our week-long look at coat trends for Fall 2006. (To read yesterday's installment, click here.) Today’s spotlight: bomber jackets. These aviator-inspired coats—characterized by fitted shoulders and banded waists—are a great option for cool but not frigid temperatures. Depending on the style, they can look both extremely casual or hip and polished, and this season, a bomber in plaid is especially cool. Here are my picks for some great bomber jackets at both designer and non-designer prices.
