Ahh, the bomber jacket… So much controversy around this heritage of the american Fly Jacket. These babies came in and out our closet over the years, following the trends I guess. To be honest I wasn’t sure to splurge on this piece this year since eeeverybody wears one (at least in Paris) it’s almost like the Adidas Stan Smith (
basic) fever! Khaki, Burgundy, all the cute colors and textures are popping this year.
But here I am heading to the Monki store in Paris, looking desperately for a mid-season jacket which let’s be real will last a couple weeks since real winter is coming sooner that we even realize it.
I tried to resist but this badass jacket had to come home with me that day! I love the fact that it’s quite masculine, all black but with the gold details and the orange inside. I went for a Large size just so that it covers my behind and to be extra cozy in it. Surprisingly this jacket is super heavy and does not let the cold through. This is how it became my go-to jacket for casual days running errands and even for night outs when it’s cold out here in these streets and you’re only wearing a piece of fabric to go out haha!
Anyways guess how much I paid for this baby? 50€!! Which is amazing for a mid-season jacket. I don’t usually feel like spending all my money on mid-season pieces which will only be worn a few weeks so I call this a great deal!
For this look I paired the jacket with big gold hoops just to bring some femininity and boldness to the outfit. I was just having fun with this look but see how it could look if you’re wearing something super sexy but still want to look low key…
