Future Ex Fling
The bomber jacket trend is still going strong and it seems like it’s here to stay for some time forward. I find it quite tricky to pull off since it’s rather unflattering for the silhouette. It’s bulky and short and difficult for most body types, but I like the look of it and it offers great variety to a biker leather jacket.
A few days ago I bumped into a girl who looked incredibly cool in a really big and bulky bomber and Dr. Martens boot with thicker than thick soles. She looked like a million bucks, but no matter how hard I try I wouldn’t feel comfortable. Instead I opt for more feminine models that are a bit thinner, less oversized and preferably in a nice soft color and material like this soft pink one from Stradivarius. I wear it with a pencil skirt (here) a slim dress (here), trying to keep everything else feminine and classic.
Not every trend is for everyone, even though we like them. The bomber jacket and I might just be a short little love affair. Like most of my past flings I’ll probably look back on it, wondering what the heck I was thinking.
