I really love bomber jackets and I love floral prints. Thus, when I saw this floral aviator jacket on eBay – new with tags – I had to buy it. The floral print and silk fabric permit to wear it like a blouse! In a casual work environment, you can even get away with it on other days than Casual Friday.

The contradiction of floral and tough bomber jacket make a statement piece.

that works for more than just Gamine and Romantic Style. The trendy combination balances the girly part of the print with the association of the tough cut. The abstract blossoms are an example of an ageless print. That’s the best combination for women in midlife. More on ageless floral prints.

A perfect way to wear a small romantic print over 40.

When you have Bohemian Style fantasy blossoms in the size of your hand are best.

Style a Floral Aviator as a Statement Piece

I always liked bomber jackets and always had one in my closet. However, when I saw the floral aviator trend, I had to have one. It’s a real statement piece. When you get one, make sure it works with the colors of your wardrobe to get the most wear out of the piece. In my case, I looked for cool neutral colors and an abstract floral print for a grown-up casual look. I also wanted that the bomber could substitute for a blazer, sort of a down-dressed Business Casual Style. This pilot jacket is exactly what I was looking for. A special benefit, it was on sale and hence affordable.
