Da Bomb

My last post was about faux fur vests. While this is a fun winter trend, it's not exactly practical outerwear for below freezing weather. So, I decided to blog about a piece of outerwear that can be worn in this kind of climate: The Bomber Jacket. I recently bought an adorable pink plaid bomber jacket myself from Burlington Coat Factory with my employee discount (I've been working there for a few months now). My bomber jacket has definitely been doing it's job in keeping me warm while I wait at the bus stop before and after work. Bomber jackets (sometimes called flight jackets; as noted in the Wikipedia link) were originally intended to be worn by pilots. The most notable wearer of the bomber jacket is Amelia Earhart. Perhaps the popularity of bomber jackets this season is due to the two Amelia Earhart movies Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (where she is portrayed by Amy Adams) and Amelia (where she is played by Hilary Swank) that came out in 2009. The character of Amelia is seen wearing a fabulous bomber jacket in both of these movies. If you saw either of these movies and liked the jackets that were featured, maybe you'll like the ones that I found online too. Take a look at my bomber jacket finds below!

During the fall, I wrote an aticle about how to incorperate a military jacket into your Halloween costume. A bomber jacket would also be great to wear on a chilly Halloween. You can go as Amelia Earhart by wearing a faux leather bomber jacket with a collared button-down shirt underneath the jacket, a long flowing scarf, some tailored pants, a plain black belt, aviator sunglasses, and a pair of tall black boots. If you see any other outerwear that you would like me to blog about this winter, let me know.

Great post on the bomber jacket! Definitely a great investment piece for winter:)

I love faux fur though, if we had winter here, I would totally find myself a leopard coat!!

Hi Sher! Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog. I'm glad you liked my post. I agree, bomber jackets are perfect for those cold winter days!

I love faux fur too. It gets below freezing here so I definitely need heavy outerwear to keep me warm during the winter!
