Style It! Floral Bomber Jacket & Denim Skirt

Let’s style a floral bomber jacket and denim skirt. First a little style history.

Fashion/Style History of the Bomber Jacket

The bomber jacket is also called a flight jacket. Birthed in the 1900s, the bomber jacket was initially designed for military pilots who needed something heavy-duty to wear in-flight. Bomber jackets provided much needed warmth during a time when cockpits were not enclosed. The temperature got pretty frigid in high altitudes. The jackets were traditionally lined with fur or wool, and featured high wrap-around collars.

Today, you can find bomber jackets of different materials, with or without lining. Many designers have crafted bomber jackets of lighter fabrics so we can enjoy them when it’s not as cold.  Although initially designed for a very important function, bomber jackets make a bold style statement. It has a sense of cool, edginess and don’t take yourself too seriously symbolism. The style and shape of the bomber jacket is very forgiving and looks great on many body types.

Style It!

This set includes the Wonder Anatomie ‘Revolt’ floral bomber jacket. The graphic print flowers add a feminine touch to a very edgy piece. The fabric is polyester, so it’s definitely not a heavy-duty jacket. I mirrored the white collar and cuffs of the jacket by adding a basic white back-message t-shirt by Mango. I didn’t want the set too dressy, so I opted for a distressed denim pencil skirt. Pencil skirts smooth out the thighs and are great for curvy or hourglass and pear figures. The pencil skirt hints at office style, but the denim tones it down.

I felt like this set needed a jolt of cobalt blue, which you can see a small amount of in the floral bomber jacket. Cobalt blue is a great color and flatters many skin tones. I searched and couldn’t resist the geometric-inspired blue ‘Moneymaker’ peep toe pumps by Nine West and cobalt blue suede clutch bag by Tom Ford. I like how the textures of the peep toe pumps and clutch work with the smooth-textured tee.

Accessories include:

Denim Skirt Days No. 6

Denim Skirt Days No. 6 features a denim knee-length pencil skirt by Citizens of Humanity and sleeveless blue ruffle blouse by Derek Lam. In case you’re not a fan of the split in the denim skirt, a safety pin (for something temporary) or small stitch can fix that. Since the skirt is knee-length, if you do stitch the split, you should still be able to walk and not shuffle. However, you may want to leave a small vent just in case.

This is how I envision wearing Yohji Yamamoto’s blue denim skirt: With a black retro Vivienne Westwood top, Christian Louboutin patent-leather sandals or red/black ankle boots. Accessorize with a Mulberry black suede bracelet, Poupee Couture red leather clutch and multi-color Murano glass ring.

The Yohji Yamamoto Vintage denim skirt with black panel featured in Denim Skirt Days No. 5 is stellar. But we’ll just let the skirt speak for itself.

Denim Skirt Days No. 3

I love purple! It’s the color of royalty; and since Jesus is the King of kings and He is my Father, that makes me a princess. Purple—the perfect color for me.

If you read the Model Me Girl Fashion Collections post, I mentioned Lydia, in the Bible, was a seller of purple. Since I’m “passionate 4 purple,” and fond of denim skirts, let’s put the two together.

The Denim Skirt Days No. 3 Collection features a blue midi-length denim skirt, purple and pink screen printed white tank, and purple jacket for cover up. Add some snazzy purple shoes and accessories, and voilà! You can be “passionate 4 purple,” too.

Denim Skirt Days No. 1

Hey, Model Me Girls! I don’t know about you, but I love me some denim skirts. Before God saved me, I was all about blue jeans as tight as I could find them. But when Christ redeemed me, not only did He clean me up on the inside, He literally changed my physical closet and wardrobe.

Sometimes I enjoy a cool casual look or vintage glam with my denim skirts (depending on mood and occasion). Modest denim skirts can be cute and stylish. So check out Denim Skirt Days No. 1—the first in the Denim Skirt Days Collection.

Enjoy!
