Life is short: Get the Statement Bomber Jacket

Life is short: Get the Statement Bomber Jacket

Bomber jackets have been a permanent resident in my life for as long as I can remember. Even before they became a trend, I would swoon and drool at their layering abilities and magnificent statement nature, thus I'd quickly bring them home and put them into a heavy rotation in my wardrobe.

Now... some trends I follow and some I just feel ridiculous in, so I try my best to stay away. But bombers? I've always liked the plethora of styles in which they come: military, aviator, floral, satin, embroidered, varsity, oversized, etc. I've never liked cropped bomber jackets though... too velour Juicy Couture tracksuit for my taste. Unless it's this Miharayasuhiro jacket. However, that's not the point.

A few days ago when I walked in to Topshop and saw this beauty hanging on the rack, I knew I had to have it. It was the last one standing, and it was screaming my name. The only problem? It's an XL. But... Was it really a problem? 

The answer is no. It wasn’t.

I grabbed that bomber jacket like I was rescuing a dog from a fire and ran to the register to drop some chelines on my new baby. 

And here it is, with the most basic of outfits (a blush toned t-shirt and black ankle jeans) because this bomber can make anything look special, and that's one of  the talents I love the most about it.

Look, no hands!
