Yes, the Manila weather can be crazy hot, but even the bipolar weather won't stop us from putting together on-point OOTDs. We all know the easiest way to take an outfit to the next level is by adding a third-piece—aka a jacket—to the equation.

Last year, bomber jackets were all the rage. Enter any Forever 21 store, and you'll see hundreds of bomber jackets in loud prints, bold colors, and catchy statements on dozens and dozens of racks. Well, here's hoping you didn't blow up your allowance on those jackets because according to the retail fashion director of Net-a-Porter Liza Aiken, "fashion is no longer all about the bomber," WhoWhatWear reports

While bomber jackets are now a fashion no-go, that doesn't mean that you can't rock a third-piece anymore. Below, we're rounding up all the styles you should swap your bombers with.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
