1970’s boho may be storming the runways, but one key piece for Fall 2014 comes straight out of the 80’s. I chose to write about bomber jackets this week for three reasons. 

3 Reasons To Wear A Bomber Jacket In Fall 2014

1. Bomber jackets are ridiculously comfortable.

Now that Summer is finished, we can finally put away our exposed midriff and devote ourselves to pre-Thanksgiving stomach stretches. During Spring/Summer, I stretch my stomach inwards. But during Fall/Winter, sweet forgiving Fall/Winter, I vigorously challenge my stomach outwards and onwards, working through Eater’s Restaurant Lists with rabid enthusiasm. Bomber jackets are fabulous for disguising a post-eating frenzy bulge.

 2. Bomber jackets look cool in a super chill, I woke up like this way.

Effortless style is the epitome of chic. I never want anyone to look at me and think “she’s trying really hard,” even when “trying hard” is an understatement. Bomber jackets make me feel like an off duty model during New York Fashion Week, who are incidentally the biggest fans of bomber jackets. Models know what’s up with the bomber. 

3. Bomber jackets are a fabulous foil for transitional weather.

What is transitional weather? The weather you are currently residing in, no matter your longitude and latitude. Light laying is key at this time, and the bombers of 2014 are light enough to layer and roomy enough to accommodate more layers.

The Breakfast Club may have bonded over youthful disillusionment, but they just as easily could have found common ground in the casual yet versatile bomber jacket, which was worn by virtually every mover and shaker to grace the neon screen between 1981-1989.

Bomber jackets are enjoying a rad renaissance thanks to the plethora of textures, patterns, shapes, and textures being used by designers high and low alike. One near-universal trait of Fall 2014’s bomber is light luxury. These jackets exude easy athleticism, and wear far less heavily than their Pretty In Pink era ancestors.

Bomber jackets appeared everywhere during Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion week, on runways as different as Dior and Public School. Raf Simons’ cheekily blended retro-redux and dashes of norm-core with delightful curvilinear bomber-jackets in petite jacquard floral, emphasizing that bright bombers suit both men and women.

At Recent CDFA winner/hipster darling label Public School’s Spring/Summer 2015 Show, printed bomber jackets practically strolled off the runway and into fashionista arms. Not bad for Public School’d very first Women’s Collection. Alexander Wang paired bright, sporty bomber jackets with dress pants in a masterful stroke of mix and match.

Retail analytics company EDITD, which analyzes the biggest Fashion Week Trends based on mentions, dubbed bomber jackets the third biggest trend of Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion week, with 404 mentions. 

Bomber jackets might have an even bigger celebrity following than yoga. Fans include Rita Ora, Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger, Rihanna, Chloe Grace Moretz, Ciara, Emma Watson, Emma Roberts, Lena Dunham, Fearne Cotton, and Kristen Stewart. 

Bombs awayyyy.

The MTV Awards is one of our favorite red carpets to watch because it is a hotspot for fun fashion risks, and just about anything goes on this night! Stylish celebrities came dressed to impress in designer duds, but some of the looks were more tasteful than others, and we decided to pick a few of our favorites of the night! Kerry Washington and Zoe Saldana prove that great fashion minds think alike, and both paired long-sleeved black tops with dramatic eye-catching skirts by Michael Kors and Givenchy, respectively. Selena Gomez looked edgy and all grown up in her braid and gold fringed mini by Julien Macdonald, and we love the color-blocked neckline on Emma Watson’s dress by Maxime Simoens. Kylie Minogue went for a belly-button-bearing metallic frock, letting the dress speak for itself and avoiding accessories (although we would have loved her to add some statement earrings or a fun ring). As for favorites of the night, the similar looks by Kerry Washington and Zoe Saldana were spring-inspired red carpet done right, and we love Emma Watson’s edgy-yet-girly high fashion look. These celebrities in particular are always stylishly consistent on the red carpet, and for that reason are some of our favorite starlets to watch! Which of these fashionistas should have earned the style award?

New Year’s Eve Inspired Looks!

Looking at fashion editorials and magazine covers is a great way to get fashion inspiration for major events like New Year’s Eve! Here are a couple festive looks that will give you some inspiration when you shop for your party look!

Do you need an outfit for New Year’s Eve? Book an appointment with one of our stylists today!

We love this look that Gwen Stefani is rocking on the cover of Vogue Magazine. This outfit is a great spin off of the typical menswear trend. The gold sequin jacket adds the right amount of sparkle and makes this outfit very party ready!

 

The LBD has been every woman’s go-to-piece for parties and events for many many years. However, a beaded and jewel encrusted little black dress instantly turns this simple classic into a major attention-grabber! Find a black dress with black detailed bead work and you will be a sure knock-out!

 

If you plan on sipping champagne and mingling with friends, then a luxe-velvet dress in a deep jewel toned color will make your look glamorous and have a reto-edge! A plunging neckline makes it appropriate for night and the thick velvet fabric will keep you warm and looking chic!

 

Dance the night away in a red brocade dress with pearls! If you want to add more glamour to your look, wear some black silk leather gloves like Emma Watson or black leather for an edgy look!
