It is officially the time of the year where I either brave the chilly mornings walking to classes with arms crossed trying to conserve body heat knowing that I have one less thing to stuff into my ever over stuffed bag. Or take a jacket, because seriously, does it really matter. Note - walking with crossed arms is seriously an art form and combined with being uncoordinated means seeing the ground from close up is theoretically more possible!
Today, warmth was a priority, thus here is a piece that you have not seen since the "Back to SQUARE 1 - coats and jackets post". This black bomber jacket has been hanging in my wardrobe since I was 14 years old. Now it is slightly tight around the shoulders and taking on a more accidental cropped style, I would not have it any other way. A sign of a great investment? Also, my 14 year old self must have had one crazy foresight since the bomber jacket has seen a revival in recent seasons, along with sweatshirts, varsity jackets and my ever favourite sneakers. I, for one have no complaints since I love this style and also the words 'fashion' and 'function' have not always been said in one sentence. I believe it is due to the 'luxe sportswear' trend where sneakers are now not only regulated to the pounding of pavements, but also for walking down the streets with skinny jeans and cashmere sweaters under jackets that are over shoulders instead of worn. Best revival to date, in my opinion! Anyone else agree with me?
