Elevating your basics is easier than you thought.
Life has gotten pretty hectic lately, and there are some days I just want to keep things simple. Black on black is my go-to whenever I’m in a hurry; and I usually layer on some type of outerwear to add a little warmth and dimension to the look. Bomber jackets make it super easy to elevate basic pieces on days when I just don’t have the time, nor the energy to put an outfit together.
Silk bombers are particularly trending this season, and I absolutely love the idea of pairing such a delicate texture, with an otherwise tough silhouette. Truth be told, I haven’t worn silk in SUCH a long time, but the embroidery details on this faux-silk ZAFUL jacket really spoke to me. I just had to have it! 😍😬💃🏽
The quality of the piece surpassed my expectations and I was also really surprised at how much it kept me warm. I really enjoy the intricate stitching on both the back and the sleeves, because it reminds me of the high-end jackets seen on the runways during NYFW, earlier this year.
In my opinion, details make the look. Comfort and minimal effort were the premises of this look, but I still wanted to look somewhat put together. Accessories and outerwear always save me in these situations 🙌🏽. It’s amazing how something as simple as rocking a basic choker, choosing the perfect shoes, or adding an interesting jacket, can take you from dusty to cool.
