Everyone is Wearing: Bomber Jacket

Her majesty leather jacket will have to be satisfied with second place this spring because now it’s all about the bomber.

Originally bomber jackets were made for pilots during the World War I because planes didn’t have a cabin so pilots needed something comfortable and resistant to wind and cold.

Leslie Leroy Irvin, the man who founded the company for design and manufacture of parachutes and an avid fan of flying, knew about pilots needs for a functional garment so he came up with the first bomber jacket lined with warm fur.

From 70’s different subcultures embraced this trend and as the hip hop music gained popularity bomber slowly became part of  the mainstream culture.

Today on the market there are bomber jackets with prices over £10,000 which says enough about the new identity of once military clothing item.

Almost everyone presented some sort of bomber jacket in their Spring Summer 16 collections: Gucci offers a green model embellished with golden and silver thread, McQueen proposed satin one in a color of Bazooka chewing gum, Chloe welcomes the spring with  green bomber jacket decorated with embroidered tiger while Stella McCartney chose girly motifs like flowers and pink horses.

High street also loves this trend so in Zara you will be able to find it in several models, from monochrome to those with flowers and at H&M you will find retro ones decorated with sequins.

Here are some of my favourites

Throw back to beginning of my summer holidays. I’m wearing a t shirt made by Lola Tees, brand from Ljubuski,Bosnia and Herzegovina .Behind the name are two girls Jelena Dzolic and Helena Bilic who managed to become popular thanks to Instagram and Facebook. They are creating statement t shirts with popular hashtag # and funny phrases which are hard translatable to English unfortunately

Off The Shoulder Trend

article-mont_tatler_8jan15_b_1440x960

It’s time to take out your strapless bra because this summer,according to designers,naked shoulders are big trend this summer.nothing  is sexier than a pair of  bare shoulders. Off shoulder dresses and tops  manage to show off an appropriate amount of skin and look ladylike and flattering on every woman.

Plus, they pair well with pretty much anything you have in your closet, from denim shorts and skinny jeans , to midi skirts.

Friday Favourites

Favourite Italian

Jamie Oliver Trattoria Richmond

The newest Jamie’s project in the heart of Richmond old town. Trattoria is based on Jamie’s italian with the more local feeling (apparently food is more Italian than at Jamie’s Italian restaurant) . It was really nice to go to one of Jamie’s restaurant without waiting in the queue for hours. They are open for breakfast, coffee, lunch, dinner or just antipasti and cocktails at the bar.Rustic interior, lovely atmosphere and great food

How To Wear Flares

stars-flare-jeans

Like it or not 70s are here as you can see all around you.Fringes ,suede and denim are part of it but if you want to nail this trend with only one piece you should get flares. I know I know,I didn’t expect they will return either ,especially because  I burned all of them long time ago…but it really depends how you going to style them. For sure they are not for all types of bodies,and when you style them point is to look sleek and modern and not like Britney Spears all-denim look. If you trying to find inspiration how to wear them look to Victoria Beckham,Jessica Alba or Kate Moss Victoria-Beckham-Loves-Flared-Jeans kate moss 2 240909 jessica-alba-flared-jeans jessica-alba-bell-bottom-jeans First thing first,don’t wear flares if they are not touching floor!NEVER EVER! That’s not stylish,that looks like your trousers shrunk. So when you buying them take the shoes you are planning to wear with them. Don’t wear boots or pointy shoes or any kind of flat shoes! Just NO!  Instead choose platforms .They are big hit this season and also very 70s as well. 98322388ed06735bbfb7cf1bc31aeaeb 916ce936af4fc81a80fa085655f5a0d3 daa7507b5d55d7ee7a1feff59b3c8251 Whatever you choose, skinny fit or wide leg flare for top always choose simple fitted t shirt,shirt,knit or jacket.Nothing too loose. For me the best ones are in dark blue,black or white colour

Little Denim Dress

Denim dress is big hit this season and I wasn’t sure is this for me or not until I saw Alexa Chung for AG Jeans collection and Pixie Denim Shirt Dress(sold out)After that I was trying to find perfect denim dress similar to that one but wallet friendly. And I tried so many from cheap to expensive ones but when I saw this Miss Selfridge dress I knew that’s it. It’s the closest I could get to Pixie

Dress –Miss Selfridge ; Boots- H&M; Jacket- Zara(similar here) Belt- H&M
