STYLE GURU STYLE: Bomber Jackets & Gold Accents

My style has been very inspired by Kanye West‘s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection. Kanye West has become a very respectable designer as of recently, and his designs are only continuing to gain popularity. The feel of this collection is similar to West’s previous collections, in that it consists of oversized sweatshirts, leggings, bomber jackets and boots. The collection is heavily focused on neutral colors and simplicity that gives off a military vibe.

It doesn’t feel quite like spring to those of us who live up north since we are experiencing cold weather, so my ripped jeans, sandals and T-shirts are still hidden in my closet. Normally, I choose pieces that are dressy, versatile and comfortable. I wanted to adapt this Yeezy trend to my own style, so after searching for the perfect military-inspired bomber jacket I found one from an online shop called Fashion Nova. It is still following the army green military trend we’ve seen in Kanye West’s collection, but the jacket is more my style due to the gold zipper accents and fitted look.

I wanted the jacket to be the main attraction of my outfit, so I paired it with classic black skinny jeans and a loosely fitted gray V-neck. I wanted to play up the gold accents in the jacket with some gold accessories. I am wearing a gold Michael Kors watch, a simple gold necklace and some rose gold aviators. In Yeezy’s collection, boots were the shoe of choice, so I thought that it was only fitting to pair my bomber jacket with some knee-high suede boots that also have gold accents to tie the whole look together.
