Fall Style With a Quilted Bomber Jacket

It's officially jacket weather and I couldn't be more excited. This is the time of year where the weather becomes consistently cold so you can throw on your layers and feel comfortable. Recently, I picked up a new jacket from Italian menswear company, Corneliani. I'm excited to wear it this fall. Corneliani is a heritage brand known for elegance and quality. I'm very drawn to Italian menswear for its sleek silhouettes and focus on craftsmanship; Corneliani delivers on both fronts. I was attracted to this particular jacket for its slim fit, light weight and combination of fabrics (wool, cashmere and polyester).

I like the cut of a bomber jacket, it ends right at the waist and can be playful and serious. I must admit that I'm a little concerned with how the knit sleeves will wear over time and if they'll retain their shape. I don't plan to wear this jacket everyday but I'd still like to know that the fabric won't become misshapen. Ultimately, I was looking for a jacket that works for in-between weather but can easily slip off if I become too warm.

For this look, I paired the navy jacket with a light grey slub sweater from the GAP, dark blue denim from Joe's Jeans and grey suede boots from Kenneth Cole New York . The color combination of grey and navy is classic and timeless. I find navy to be a strong color that's calming and approachable. Grey is a neutral color that pairs well with a lot of darker contrast colors and provides the appropriate amount of color balance. Also, I think grey is so much more visually interesting than black or brown. To complete this look, I grabbed my camouflage pattern tote from Banana Republic to add some additional interest to contrast with the solid colors.

For a more relaxed look, switch out the sweater for a long sleeve Henley and throw on some high top Chuck Taylor's. Alternatively, opt for a light colored button-up shirt, dark corduroys and dark desert boots to make the look dressier.

With this look, I chose not to cuff my jeans to keep the silhouette seamless and contemporary. One of my final decisions when dressing is whether or not to cuff. I typically consider the overall look and which shoes I'll wear before I make a decision. Try both looks in a mirror then trust your gut for a decision.

Let me know what you're looking forward to wearing this fall. Thank you for reading. Please comment, share and like.

Stay stylish friends...
