(50) Shades of Blue

The Bomber jacket was a typical wind-breaker worn by the Royal Flying Corps in 1915, which through the years has turned into a beloved garment making a comeback recently in new shapes, lengths and innovative fabrics. There are too many bomber jackets to choose from either plain or super trendy. In this post I tried to combine a formal version of this jacket with more of an everyday casual garment to give it a more relaxed yet elegant style. Another reason why I tried to be monochromatic and simple is because I believe being too colourful in such an outfit might diminish its formality. Navy goes with everything even with black. We know that black as well goes with everything but sometimes the combination of the two colours can be dull, due to both being too similar in tone and colour. However not all navies are the same. A brighter navy can be paired with black thus providing enough contrast to separate the two. Try something as simple as navy blue trousers with a pair of black shoes or a jacket. I merged black and navy together in a formal outfit playing with the texture of the two colours and the two faced tailored trousers. My outfit is completed with a white shirt which goes with pretty much everything and the collar pin adds character and individuality.  A pin collar shirt is not only used with formal apparel so I experimented with a more relaxed smart look, to showcase the combination of casual and smart.

Enjoy,
