Dear May, we’ve been expecting you!
Hope you’ve all been well,considering the heavy rains and cold weather. All I can think of during this time is my warm cup of tea, cosied up on the couch watching a new episode of the much awaited game of thrones series…
With sportswear having a moment on the streets right now, what way to easen up this trend into your wardrobe than with the bomber jacket? Bomber jackets ultimately look cool over any outfit,most especially the over-sized bomber.
With its military fighter pilot origin,this jacket gives you the right dose of attitude. I saw this coat in the possession of my dad one chilly morning before heading out for school, and I instantly fell in love with it. In no time, I had already jacked it from him. Thanks dad!
I was going for a more tom boy-ish look, so I paired my over-sized bomber jacket with plain black skinnies, black sneakers and i added a dash of red in wearing my tee. I love this jacket for its silk feel, and comfort. The good thing about it is that it’s warm, but then again under that midday sun, it doesn’t get overbearing as it seems.
Venture beyond the classic black look and try out the pink , navy blue or the killer jungle green bomber. I prefer black in most cases since it’s neutral and you can mix and match with different looks. You could pair your over-sized bomber with leggings and a sweatshirt, a tee shirt dress and sneakers, leather mini skirt and a bralette.The possibilities are many, but always go for what makes you feel comfortable.
For this outfit, I went for minimal accessories: my golden watch, a chain and golden bracelet as well. For my lips, I wore my Candy K from the Kylie cosmetics..(just kidding lol ) but the matte gloss gave me that umph’ I was looking for. My afro also played a role in being part of my accessory, by adding that volume to the look, and the rugged but stylish vibe. For my bag, I went for a classic black leather backpack that’s a total life saver as it is very easy to carry around, it has that luxurious feel to it and the simplicity of the design makes it easy to pair with a pair of skinnies and a bright coloured tee.
Explore different feels to your bomber jacket and play with availability of the colours.
I hope you enjoyed this post, stay tuned to more blog posts but most importantly, stay safe!
A toast to new beginnings ,Happy new month & birth month to us May babies?
