2016 Winter Outerwear if you Dare

I don’t know about you, but its COLD lol. And like most New Yorkers, I am complaining about the weather. However, I will say we got a chance to get spoiled a bit with 60 to 70 degree weather before 2015 closed out.

Although the frigid temps are definitely not my thing, I can truthfully say I look forward to one thing and one thing only:


Towards the end of last year going into 2016, there have been some WINTER outerwear that I’ve been eyeing like crazy. As always, I try to look for an amazing deal and something a little out of my comfort zone when scoring a jacket or coat. I decided to showcase to you all some amazing jackets/coats that have been my absolute fave. The first for this segment lol I wanted to show you was a bomber jacket.

LONGLINE BOMBER JACKET( or better known as my weekend jacket for just relaxing)

For 2016, I STRONGLY believe the longline bomber jacket will continue to reign supreme. With its VERSATILE, COMFORTABLE and VINTAGE appeal, these bomber jackets seem to me that they’ll stick around for quite a while. Stemming back from the 20th century, the bomber jacket’s longer more modern approach has been worn by both men and women making it definitely a unisex piece. Designers have also changed the look of the bomber jacket all throughout their runways.

I truly believe that overtime, these jackets will eventually become a staple in everyone’s closet. I couldn’t resist its appeal so I got a chance to purchase mine right before the holidays  : )

I love the fact that almost every clothing store carries these jackets in so many different variations. Some could range as high as $200 (or more depending on the store and/or designer) to as little as about $50. So no one isn’t left out in scoring on of these gems.

Maroon vibes (Missguided)


Classic Black(Forever21) My gem!



With its quilted lining and drawstring, I couldn’t say no to this bomber beauty. Not only is it inexpensive but quite warm.I could get away with layering a bit depending on how cold it is to not having to layer at all due to its thick lining.

So if you haven’t gotten a chance to score a bomber as yet, check out these places I’ve attached to the pictures to get some ideas.

Be sure to check out my next blog highlighting segment 2 of 2016 Winter Outerwear!

Don’t forget to leave a comment on what is your ideal weekend jacket and or coat!
