Earlier this fall I saw this jacket and loved it. One on my goals is to be more mindful about purchasing timeless pieces rather then trendy items that I will get sick of in a year or two. I'm looking for opinions on whether this jacket is to trendy or if its something that will not look dated several years down the road. Any feedback is appreciated thanks!

I don't think it's 'timeless'
But I do think it's gorgeous!!!!
I think you'll really enjoy it!!! I'm very pro-'timeless' wardrobe, but there should be a happy middle ground!! A certain percentage of your wardrobe should be 'trendy' or unique!!!
I say get it!! And enjoy if for as long as possible!!!

Like you, I strive to have a more timeless wardrobe, but sometimes it can feel a bit dull if I don't infuse it with some fun "of the moment pieces." To me, this falls into the lively and more on trend pieces. I think it could be a wonderful addition to a wardrobe to liven up the other more classic and timeless pieces. Good luck deciding!

No, it's not timeless. But it's fun. Pretty much what the other posters already said: every wardrobe should have the special items that bring you joy to wear.

It looks like a fun piece and you could wear it a lot, but i don't think it is timeless.

I don't think the bomber jacket trend is timeless unless you're looking at a classic MA-1 type bomber. But if you love it, it's certainly ok to have some fun pieces, and you may very well still wear it after this trend is over.
