#FactorieSAxJessicaMahlekisi

I recently teamed up with Factorie SA to showcase how I’m wearing the popular flight jacket AKA bomber with some of my favorite trends this season..

Trend 1: Androgyny aka ”borrowing from the boys”


You’ll find me wearing something baggy every second day and that is why this puffed up bomber works so well for me – paired with an over sized pink sweater, wide legged trousers and heels.

 To create a look that is comfortable and not too masculine.   



Trend 2: Pleats 

I consider the pleated midi skirt a basic because I can dress it up or down dependent on if I pair the skirt with my fave pair of heels or sneaks, 


this patterned bomber jacket from factorie adds a pop of color to this otherwise monochromatic look. 



Trend 3:  Athleisure 

Anything described as both practical and edgy gets a nod from me. 

This warm bomber jacket is the perfect finishing touch for days when I’m feeling a little too sassy. 😉


A brief fashion history lesson: how the bomber jacket has evolved

The flight jacket as it was formerly known was initially created for military pilots back in 1917, since then the flight jacket has adopted a new name and style using different fabrics and silhouettes making it suitable for every season of the year and a wardrobe staple for people from all walks of life…
