Trends I love – bomber jackets

Last year I bought myself a brown bomber jacket from Woolies and have worn it a hundred times! It really was a great buy. I wanted a jacket in brown to have a bit of a break from all the black in my wardrobe and when I saw it on the rack I knew it was the one.

A few weeks ago while browsing through Woolies I came across this gorgeous black quilted bomber. I immediately put my bag down and tried it on. It looked amazing and I knew it was my new jacket for winter.

The bomber jacket isn’t very feminine but luckily you can make them look a little more girlie when you pair them with florals, lace, dresses and skirts. Mine is a black quilted pleather bomber (another trend I currently love is leather!) but if that’s not your scene I’ve seen others online in soft floral fabrics as well. Most of the time I pair my jackets with a white tee and jeans and then either boots or pumps. This year sneakers are in, and there are some great styles and colours to choose from, so I’ll probably finish my outfit off with some sneakers for more of a sporty look.

These are some great jackets I found on Pinterest.

OOTD 25 December

Usually I get dressed up on Christmas day and wear a dress or skirt to family lunches. Today I felt quite laid-back and decided to rather just dress casually for lunch. The weather is overcast and drizzling and all I want to do is curl up under a blanket and watch TV all day.

Today’s casual OOTD was:

baseball top (PnP clothing)

boyfriend jeans (Woolworths)

glitter slop/sandals (Woolworths)

assorted silver jewellery (inherited, Gems & Jewels and YDE)

OOTD 25 december

For my make-up I chose to do neutral eyes, bronzed cheeks and a bright coral lip. As for my hair I tied it up in a ponytail.
