I feel like when I’m putting together an outfit I go one of two ways. I either go monochromatic and play with tones and shades of colors. Or I go bold and pair colors and patterns that seem like they wouldn’t work together (and sometimes they don’t 🙁 ). This one’s kind of a combination of the two categories. On one hand this super bright corduroy shirt is almost blinding under the dark contrasting jacket. But on the other hand, it’s just one bright color combined with essentially all navy (jacket and pants). It’s a toss-up. So maybe this conversation of compartmentalized my looks into two basic categories was all for naught. But regardless, this is about the bomber jacket.
This look is perfect for this time of year (especially when so much of the country is experiencing such mild weather) and it’s super easy to recreate. For me, last year was the year of the chunky shawl-collar cardigan. And, to my huge collection of cardigans, if you are reading this, I still love you very much. But, this year is definitely the year of the bomber jacket. I need to pick up a few more of them but for now I’ve got a few that can easily be worked into most looks. Treat them like you would a cardigan or sweater and you’ll be good to go.
