As I look through these photos I’m recalling the number of people who told me they hated this bomber jacket when I showed it on YouTube. One even vented about how much she disliked the 90s fashion revival altogether and I totally get it. That’s how I feel about cropped EVERYTHING. I don’t consider myself to be fashion forward and it usually takes me forever to warm to new trends (some I will just never understand) but I often feel this comes down to age and lifestyle. This bomber jacket for example, had I seen it in store I would have dismissed it immediately but I saw it on Poppy’s Style , a 40 plus style blogger and she looked GREAT. We share a love of all things H&M and I love her style so she totally inspired me to pick this up and I’m glad I did. It’s not very ‘me’ but if we totally disregard anything new style becomes so much less interesting, doesn’t it?
I’m never going to be an early adopter but I am going to make more effort to try things I wouldn’t usually. Once upon a time I thought skinny jeans were hilarious and totally unflattering and now I find it totally bizarre when try the new girlfriend styles.. Post on just that topic coming very soon!
In the meantime I will leave you with these photos of Emma and I rocking our ‘matching’ red bombers and feeling very girl gang/West Side Story to demonstrate that not only is fashion ageless but it also has no size. Whatever trend you wish you could wear right now, stop wishing and get out there and wear it.
