The Cape Blazer vs The Bomber Jacket
Posted: Feb 20 2017
This season, two major outerwear pieces took over the run way. The cape blazer and the bomber jacket. So which one do we think is a vital addition to your wardrobe? Let's break it down!
The Cape Trend. Yes, the cape blazer is here and to say we are in love with it, is an understatement. No we aren't talking about red flow-y super hero capes. (Although, that would be kinda cool.) We are talking about the chicest piece that can transform your outfit from casual to high-fashion in seconds. It's a staple piece every woman should have in their closet.
Its the perfect way to keep warm throughout winter without scrunching up your outfit and slipping in and out is so easy, it will become your go-to jacket! Did we mention it looks good with everything? Whether you're wearing jeans, a skirt, trousers or a dress, this cape will up the style ante of your entire wardrobe.
There are so many fun designs to choose from. Varying in styles, colors and patterns, for us at Pippa & Pearl, nothing can beat a classic black cape. The best part about these capes, they'll work for every season. Even layered with pretty floral dresses this spring or a white t-shirt and cropped jeans, the cape is here to stay. If you own one of these bad boys, you're a fashion super hero in our books!
The Bomber Jacket is taking over street style, runways and celebrities alike. It seems to be fashions favorite new jacket!
The bomber jacket or MA-1 (if we're getting technical) started as a jacket that was best suited for chilly, cramped cockpits. Pilots needed outerwear that was going to be functional in high-altitude cold weather while still being streamlined enough to stay out of the way of plane operation. But no longer is it confined by its military roots, the bomber is now a true fashion essential.
So, how can the bomber jacket become a staple piece in your closet? Well, like the cape blazer, you can pretty much pair it with anything. Throw it over a white t-shirt, black jeans, strap up booties and a bold clutch for a fierce look. And don't be afraid to throw it over a sexy wrap dress with wedged sneakers for an unexpected sportswear look.
There's no doubt that the bomber has taken over the fashion world, in its unusual colors and fresh silhouettes. Some are oversized and some are embroidered, it's all about the details this season. Of course we want our cake and to eat it too! So we opted for a classic black bomber with a peek-a-boo bold pink silk interior. If you go this route, you'll be lookin' pretty, eerm, bomb!
So which one is the winner? Sorry guys, but this is a tie in our book. These are both versatile pieces that will give your wardrobe easy to go to options and take any outfit up a notch. We need them both in our closets!
