Bomber jackets are the hottest thing around right now. It is the must have piece this season. There are so many different versions of the bomber jackets there is sure to be one that fits your personality and style.
I wanted to find out where the bomber jacket originated from. I discovered the bomber jacket, or flight jacket has been around for a very, very long time. The bomber jacket goes all the way back to World War 1. The military pilots needed something warm to wear during flight. They were made out of leather because it was durable to stand the weather conditions.
Over the years the bomber jacket has transformed, it wasn’t till the late 60’s to 80’s the bomber jacket became the fashionable item it is today.
I’ve chosen 5 all $60 and under, in different material and colours. There is a cross between more feminine styles to more military to try and cater to everyone. You can wear it over a t-shirt with jeans and sneakers or with a dress. Have fun, don’t be afraid to style your bomber with what you have in your wardrobe.
The Ultimate Bomber Jacket in Jersey – Navy is a classic colour and a popular one. Jersey is very comfortable and therefore practical to wear when you’re on the run.
Lightweight Zipped Sleeve Pocket in pink – not much detail and more feminine because of it’s blushing colour. Made from polyester and lightweight so you can still wear it as the weather gets warmer.
The Boohoo Clean Cotton Bomber Jacket – This one is made from cotton, another one of my favourite materials. This khaki version is more on the military side which is right on trend. I love the zipper details on the sleeves.
The Sophia Velvet Bomber Jacket – Velvet and embroidery on and the front and back. It’s fairly light weight to wear in spring and less puffy on the arms if you don’t like adding bulk to your shoulders.
Ponte in black – Another less bulky jacket. Cute zippers on the sleeves. At $50 it’s a steal. It would be very easy to style this jacket because it’s so versatile.
Which one would you choose? Are you a proud owner of a bomber jacket?
It’s beginning to feel a lot like Autumn. It did take longer than expected but with the temperature dropping and leaves starting to fall off trees I think it’s safe to say Autumn has arrived. I love Autumn, it’s not too cold and it’s not too hot and I get to wear some of my favourite items of clothing this time of year. Jeans, knits, ponchos, tunics just to name a few.
This outfit is simplistic but not dull, comfortable yet stylish. You could wear this outfit to work on casual Friday’s, grocery shopping or catching up with friends. When it gets cold you could wear a trench coat or leather jacket with it. Dress it up with boots or strappy heels, a clutch and statement earrings.
Black jeans is one of the greatest inventions of all time. If you don’t own a pair of black jeans this is why you should run out and buy a pair;
- Dirt doesn’t show on them
- They go with everything
I bought these Prima Estelle Curve Embracer skinny jeans from Jeanswest. I’ve been buying Jeanswest jeans for quite some time now and I love how they cater for the vertically challenged like myself. I would normally have to pay to get my jeans altered but I don’t have to with Jeanswest 7/8 jeans they are the perfect length. There jeans hold there shape and colour wash after wash. I love jeans I wear mine till I literally get holes in them, (my baby thighs rub together). Good quality jeans are essential.
I’m having a love affair with burgundy at the moment. I’m buying so much burgundy I can’t get enough of it. In the past during the cooler months I would normally stick to wearing navy, black and grey. It can pay off to try something new because you might just end up loving it.
This side split roll neck sleeveless knit from Forever New is really affordable and versatile. When it gets colder you can wear it on top a leather jacket, cardigan or parker with a scarf. Black, white, navy, mustard and grey works well with this colour.
Now lets talk shoes. I’m wearing the Tiffy snake skin lace up flats from Target. They are comfy and sexy well I think there sexy for flats. You can’t buy the snakeskin online but you can buy black online.
Is this an outfit you would wear on the weekend? What colours are you loving right now?
