The bomber jacket is just one of many menswear pieces whose heritage is cemented within the armed forces. Similar to the pea, trench and parka coats, the bomber has a timeless appeal that transcends years, styles and trends; born out of military means and adapted to form part of popular culture.
This timeless quality makes the bomber well worth investing in if you have a penchant for classic, enduring personal style.
Traditionally identified by its waist length, knitted waistband/cuffs and front zip closure the bomber has been reinvented and reinvigorated in various forms. The basic bomber silhouette has played part in a number of classic takes that have gone down in menswear history and continue to be worn today.
A printed bomber jacket can make a bold statement. With print being arguably the most prominent menswear trend of both 2012 and 2013, opting for a pattern shows familiarity with current industry influences. This style of bomber is ultimately a casual piece and works best when utilised as such.
Matching it with a simple sweatshirt, black jeans and pair of sneakers references another major trend: sports luxe, whilst the print in the bomber ensures the look is neither slovenly nor ordinary:

Even if you say you don't care about fashion and
don't dress to make a statement, you are
making a statement (that you don't care about
As girl into fashion and a student of textile, it is important to understand the true meaning of the F word: Fashion.What does it really mean and what is it's real purpose?For me, fashion helps you express 'yourself' and therefore it should always be based on what you find interesting - and no one else!
Fashion is an expression of one's inner self and not a reflection of every one's expectation of what should be expressed. The land of true fashion is a lion's den and you better know what you're up against before throwing yourself into the roaring dungeon of darkness! Okay, maybe that's a bit overboard but hey, you've seen the movies, (the one true source )- the fashion world is brutal and people's understanding and definition of fashion is even more scary.
I think that fashion should be seen as something that represents a rhythm but the steps we choose to move to the music with, should be our own- we should move freely and not bound to the must-have-lists.
Because seriously, nothing is as refreshing as seeing someone walk down the street in their own little world of awesomeness! So why so scared to stand out, don't be a slave to what the trend pages say - and if you have to, be inspired not numbed and brainwashed to become a 'FASHIONSLAVE'- different is brilliant and who knows, you could absolutely be walking down the street spreading your little share of awesomeness with your genuine uniqueness.
Remember, fashion is 'a general term for the style and custom prevalent at a given time" which basically means that fashion is constantly fleeting while style is forever.
So put down those trend slaved zombie hands and become an admirable masterpiece!
What are your feelings about fashion? Where do you place your craze, are you a zombie or masterpiece?
