The Blue Bomber Jacket

Of all the cheesy phrases in English language, one I truly believe in is never say never.

Some people think that people don’t change, but I disagree. I’ve seen plenty of examples of it in my own life.  Not just in my personal life but in my style too. Maybe even as little as 5 years ago you wouldn’t catch me in a blue bomber jacket, but here I am wearing one.

When I first started getting into fashion as a teenager, I didn’t have a sense of my personal style yet and I just tried to copy trends I saw in magazines. That meant I also tried to always look fancy because I thought that was more fashionable. More heels, less sneakers. Blazers instead of cardigans and sweaters – you get it. My high school principal even asked me on the last day of school why I always dressed up so much (lol).

As I’ve gotten older and figured out what my style really is, it’s all about practicality and comfort now. As much as I love getting all dressed up every once in a while, I really am more of a casual dresser when it comes to the day to day. I love that now in fashion it’s totally cool to wear things that used to be frowned upon, like sneakers and sweatshirts. It’s just about styling those pieces to make them interesting. Casual does not have to mean boring.

And though I love all sorts of details and embellishments, sometimes it’s as simple as a bold colour, like the rich, bold blue of this jacket. It’s also the perfect weight for spring. Pretty much all of my jackets are black so it’s nice to have this one to switch things up every once in a while. It’s also great for brightening up a rainy grey day, when I would normally stick to black or grey. I wore it with my waxed jeans and chunky platform heels for an easy but eye-catching casual look.

Thanks for reading! How did your style change over the years?

    You have styled this jacket beautifully! It has great colour and shape! As for my style, I did`t know how to dress for my short body when I was younger, or put together an outfit that flattered me. I did not dare to wear something new. Now I have to say I know better! I follow some rules but I also try new things that finally prove to be flattering for me. I think that is what we have to do. Have a nice day and month!

    agree with you that fashion and style are more liberal these days. i don’t know if it’s because we’ve grown up and discovered our own styles to embrace or because fashion at large now actually celebrates individual styles more than it ever used to. either way, glad that we have this freedom of expression. 🙂

    I loved learning about your style transformation, and think I as well as many others can definitely relate. Heck I’m still discovering new things about my style preferences every day 🙂 But I’m glad you tried this bomber, as the blue looks fabulous on you!

    It’s so cool you’ve already found your personal style! Of course as a person you’ll always evolve, but at least you have a strong basis. For me it feels like I’m still searching, I have a rough idea of what I like and dislike but I can’t say I can describe it in a few words. It’s been a lot on my mind lately, perhaps I might turn it into a blog project some time soon. I really love your bomber jacket, it’s a great fit on you and the color is so so pretty 🙂

    I used to be a lot crazier with how I dressed as a teenager. I wore a lot of punky outfits and tons of studs, fishnets, layered cheap jewelry. I basically looked like a mix between Madonna, Cindy Lauper and Jem (and the Holograms). Definitely grew out of that! The I got into Margiela, Jeremy Scott, Comme des Garconnes, Opening Ceremony, etc and wore that from the age of 18 or so until early 20s. Now I’ve polished everything up and pull inspiration from both phases in life. I tend to veer toward comfort and minimal style in my everyday life.

    Either way, fashion taste changes as you grow old. I still have my taste preferences, but I stay conscious of my lifestyle now.

      Lol I would love to see some throwback pictures on your blog or insta! My older sister always told me that eventually you’ll go back to what you originally loved, she said that about music but I think it applies to fashion too (in a sense). I’m still in my early 20s so who knows, maybe my style will change again when I’m in my 30s, but I think I’ve got a pretty good sense now.

    I think that fashion is not only about trends but also about your personal style. But this is a thing that most people have to learn and it’s great that you have found your personal style! I love that outfit, it’s so simple but the bomber jacket makes it special. The color of it is awesome!

      Definitely! It’s like that quote fashion fades but style is eternal. I try not to pay too much attention to trends unless it’s something I really like. Thank you 🙂
