Styling a Bomber Jacket

It’s only February and it’s already looking like spring in Las Vegas! I’m ready to celebrate warmer weather with thinner fabrics, brighter colors and better yet – floral prints.

To be honest I haven’t been a huge fan of the bomber jacket trend. It is quite bulky, which isn’t very flattering especially if you’re short like me. However, the silky fabric and floral embroidery of this jacket I recently found on Gilt got me! Not to mention the 40% extra I got on it, and that’s after sale. I couldn’t pass it up after all.

Silk looks great with velvet, so I hope to pair this jacket with velvet dresses or pants. For s more casual look, I would opt for a pair of white skinny jeans or a flared denim.

How do you like to wear a bomber jacket?

The Non-Traditional Jumpsuit, feat. Anthropologie

One of my favorite summer trends is the jumpsuit. Although it can be daunting looking for the perfect one, once you find it – hold on to it!

Jumpsuits are fun – they come in various lengths, styles and colors. The downside is that usually they don’t fit the way we want them to. And trust me, with any outfit the fit is what matters the most. If you want a flattering and feminine look, these things come into play: fit, color and styling.

Today, I’m featuring a non-traditional all Anthropologie look. I personally love patterns although they are not for everyone. The fit of this particular jumpsuit is not the most flattering one, but again with the right accessories you can make it work. Enjoy!
