When it comes to trends, I first take into account my personal style. If a trend happens to aline itself with my style, I can see myself partaking in it. One trend that has caught my eye has been the bomber jacket. I am no stranger to the bomber jacket as I did a Bomber Jacket Lookbook last fall prior to them becoming such a huge trend this season. My eclectic style that has elements of creative and edgy (see my Find Your Style Type section) and when I saw a dusty mauve one with a floral print on it, I thought it would lend itself well in my closet. Today I am mixing this whimsical printed jacket with distressed jeans to marry two elements from my personal style together.
The bomber jacket is like this seasons cardigan. You can pop it over a tee, blouse, cami, or dress for an instant current look. This classic silhouette now has all kinds of styles available from dark and rocker to girlie and whimsical.
I had some fun with this floral bomber jacket and wore it all zipped up to feature it as a top. A zebra print clutch and distressed denim keep this outfit from going too sweet for my taste, plus I love any chance I get to print mix. Some dark brown booties add even more toughness.
Printed bomber jackets are fun to style because you can pick and choose which color you want to highlight each time you wear it. I chose to wear a large vintage inspired faux green stone necklace to pick up on the dark green in the leaves of the print. I think it adds even more of that eclectic, quirky feel I am always wanting to achieve as well. The mustard yellow and dark merlot red colors in the jacket are ones I want to feature with it in the future.
This particular jacket is reversible with the other side being the solid dusty mauve color. I would just need to remove the brand and size tag from the neck to be able to do that. Consequently, this jacket does not have any pockets, but that is not a deal breaker for me. It’s silky fabric adds great sheen and polish.
There are several lower price point bomber jackets out there as well as gorgeous high end ones and either way you go, this silhouette will always be a great addition to a wardrobe. I can see this jacket also being worn in the spring time with shorts or sundress as a light layer. The beauty of them being on trend right now is that you are able to select one that has a particular print, color, or fabric that suites your personal style.
