When Floral and Bomber Jacket Join as Trend

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 link up to an edgy piece. It balances the girly part of the print with the association of the tough cut.

A perfect way to wear small romantic print over 40.

Why to Add a Floral Aviator to Your Wardrobe

The great thing about prints is that you have so many options to wear the piece with other pieces in your closet. This bomber, for example, goes with various shades of gray, pink and blue as well as with black and white. Check the post at the link to see how this floral print with leather skirt outfit looks with a gray sweater. In another styling, I paired the floral bomber with a striped leather skirt. A street style look with a silver accordion pleated skirt can be found in this post on packing for a dance cruise. Note these three posts open in new tabs for best UX, so you can read on here.

Pro tip: When you buy a trendy item like this floral bomber make sure that you can wear it with many pieces of your closet.

What are your criteria for jumping the band wagon on a trendy piece? Let me know, I am curious.

I love the 1920s inspired outfit by Charlotte who is the blogger at Sublime Mercies. The other 1920s outfits and sewing pattern she showed in her post are also wow worthy. She became Top of the World OOTD My Fav. The floral dress is just awesome.
