Bomber Jacket with The Fab 40s
The Fab 40’s is a group of seven stylish fashion bloggers from around the globe. This group’s goal is to take on style trends and show how they each interpret and incorporate them into their own lives. With multiple and widely varied views, you are certain to find something that speaks to you each month and encourages you to continue to have fun with fashion after 40.
Each month the Fab 40s choose a different theme and invite a guest blogger who is also in their forties to join them. And, (drum roll please) I am that lucky contributor number 8 for this month! And the most exciting news is, the theme for this month, is the bomber jacket!
There’s no denying that bomber jackets are having a moment. I have been watching this trend since last year but just couldn’t see myself wearing one. So thanks very much for this challenge to push me out of my comfort zone. There are a lot of people who said they can’t believe I don’t have one. Yup, I had to order this Black Floral Rib Detail Bomber Jacket on Choies just for this guest post.
I like to dress up my casual looks so I picked a black lace cropped top to layer underneath, then a red leather skirt to play with the floral prints on the jacket. I kept the rest of the outfit simple and basic, classic but never boring black to showcase the jacket. After all it is the star of the show!
