My coat of many colors…

2 Bombers 4 Ways

This spring fashion is all about the Statement Jacket!  The variety of styles and treatments available to buy or make is endless and only limited by the wearer’s imagination (or pocketbook). Today I’m showcasing two versions of the bomber jacket that would be easy to make if you are so inclined.

I really like Joie’s Mace Floral Silk Bomber Jacket.  If you are going to make a similar look there are endless fabric choices to choose from.  Silk, cotton, velvet – almost any fabric would work well.  I’m leaning toward some sort of silk brocade with cord trim and a satin lining to make my own version of the look.

The Elie Tahari Glenna Sheer Floral Lace Bomber Jacket is another favorite of mine.  It’s a look designed for casual sex appeal and could be dressed up or down.  I’d love to make something similar in the sequin and beaded tulle (which would weigh a ton but look awesome!) but will settle for using a burnout fabric instead. Once I’ve finished I’ll wear it with a black tank, faded boyfriend jeans and black sandal – the perfect outfit for a night of clubbing in Miami next month.

Next up…denim jackets done 3 ways.
