The bomber jacket is one of my must have styles for Fall – it has a certain casual vibe to it but looks equally cool and nonchalant (if a jacket could be described as ‘nonchalant’ this would be the one) over a party dress, as we just recently saw Elie Saab’s Spring 2016 Ready to Wear collection. Historically the style was created for military men but later favored by more of a rebellious and punk youth culture of the 80’s, which pretty much solidified its cool-factor in the fashion world. Even now it is a favorite of artists and musicians like Kanye West, who – side note – even dresses little baby North in them (adorable)! I’d even venture to say it has bypassed the blazer as a closet essential, because though a blazer is versatile, it is also a tad more formal and therefore does not exude quite the same amount of effortlessness, and isn’t that what we are all striving for really?
Today I’m teaming up with Lulus.com and my favorite bloggers from across the country to show you our favorite pieces for Fall. What really sets Lulu’s apart is their curated selection, I especially love their sweaters and outerwear. This jacket I went up a couple of sizes for the oversized look. When I go oversized on top, I like to keep the rest of the look streamlined so I paired with skinny jeans and sleek chelsea booties.
As always, click on the link below the blogger to get details on their look! Also – scroll down for details on an awesome giveaway for two sold out tickets to the Gilt City Warehouse Sale in Chicago~ you don’t want to miss!
** Also, for my Chicago girls (and guys!) – I am giving away two VIP tickets to the Gilt City Warehouse Sale – this is for the Friday, October 16th 9:30 p.m. VIP entrance which is SOLD OUT. It is so important to get there sooner than later so you can be the first to pick your favorite items in your size. Last year I scored major deals on a pair of Isabel Marant suede pumps and a Leather dress by Helmut Lang. The key to getting great deals is to go in with an idea of what you are looking for, and don’t waste too much time hanging at the bar or chatting with friends because it is definitely a shopping ‘party’ and trust me you will be tempted. Just be sure to get everything you want first, then hang with friends. Good luck!
Winner will be announced on Friday!
