Good day, everybody!
One of the trends that i catched from the runways and fashion magazines is the flower print. I can’t say it was sometime out of fashion but now it seems it will raise to the top again. Most of all i like the girlie dresses with little flowers on them. I am not a dresses-and-skirts type of girl, but this kind of clothes doesn’t really requre you to be all feminine or hot or sexy or whatever. I still can mix boots/sneakers with the floral dress and look great!
Okay, i desided to begin one more periodic kind of posts, that will be about the history of clothing. And i will begin with the bomber.
The bomber has a longstanding history that stretches from the middle of the 20th Century into today.
It appeared due to the World War II, when pilots needed some outwear that had to be functional and comfortable. At first they made the A-2 jacket, that was made of leather, with a neck flap and pockets on the front.
The further the technologies went, the higher the planes could fly. The A-2 jacket already couldn’t defeat the low temperatures outside the plane and wasn’t comfortable enough, dues to the increasing number of devices inside the pilot’s cabin – it was way too big.
So the next generation of bombers was made – the B-15 ones. They are made from nylon and cotton, and have a zip pocket on the sleeve and a fur collar.
And finally, in the 1949 comes the model that is probably the closest one to the bombers we know and love – the MA-1 . The fur collar was replaced by the knit one, cause it wasn’t working good with parachute shrouds. The jacket became much more light and comfortable than it’s previous versions. Somewhere aroud sixties it got one intresting update – the manufacturers added an orange liner. This way the jacket became reversible and in case of a plane crash the bright orage color could help the rescue air forces find the pilot.
During the post war period the bomber was used in many different ways, if you are interested here’s the site i took the pictures and basic info from.
And as a little “Thank you!” to those who read this till the very end here is a set of looks with bombers))
Hope you enjoyed!
Sorry guys, the weather really influences my posts. The clouds are huge, there is no sun, it’s cold and rainy and windy… Everything seems grey. So today’s set of photos will be about grey outfits. Mostly they are including sweaters and coats, so sorry, my summer mood is gone temporally. But still these looks are gorgeous!
Today will be a super random post!
I am watching Portlandia now – for those who do not know, it’s an amazing show, with awkward but cute humor.
So they had a sketch about guys, who put birds on things, i mean really, they placed images of birds on everything around them, and it was kind of their motto – PUT A BIRD ON IT!
Here’s that sketch, in case you’d want to watch it)
And here are some clothes with birds on them!
Okay, here i am getting irrational, cause in my previous post i told you that it’s time to get rid of clothes and wear the bare minimum. But it’s cold here now, so my post about long shirts is somehow justified)
They are just amazing, when you wear them half undone with pants or jeans the fabric streams round your legs, making you look lighter.
The weather is getting nicer and nicer and i already want to peel off layers of clothing. The sun shines bright so it’s time for us to choose lighter outfits and finaly show some skin!
So, this summer trend is bra-top. They are stylish, they can by sexy or not but they let our skin breath and i think this is essential for hot days.
Hi darlings! Sorry i didn’t post much lately, so now i will catch up. Today’s theme will be linnen. I really like this fabric, dresses made of linen look moderate, but beautiful and original. The simplicity is the key.
Today i found an interesting saying in the internet – statement sleeves. I googled it and it is said that this spring statement sleeves are one of the biggest trends. And really, i have seen this a lot at the shops, so the naming of this trend is soooo amazing!
Mostly statement sleeves are bell sleves, ruffled sleeves or maybe just really long or factured ones.
I have already had a post about ruffles so in this one i will focus mainly on bell sleves.
This spring, stripes are everywhere, this print is angling for serious space in your closet. And why not? It’s one of the most wearable trends this season. For a timeless sea-worthy look, stick to stripes in go-to primary colours like red and blue. Mostly i see striped knitted dresses and blouses, so here they are – stunning, bright and vivid!
Okay, monday is over, so now i am ready to present you something more down-to-earth, but not less stunning and stylish!
Probably lately you have seen this look a lot in instagram or blogs – wide belts, often looking like corsets. Mostly girls combine them with oversize shirts, t-shirt and bodycon dresses, even over some denim jackets.
I have never worn such kind of thing, so i do not really know how to style it – so if you’re like me – follow the pics below, here are some good looks with this accessory.
