Something about New York has me ditching femininity for urban edge and I’ve really been loving my new Supreme cap lately. In all honesty, I’ve kind of been engineering my outfits around it. I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I like something from the brand it almost instantly sells out. After plenty of missed attempts I found a corduroy cap at their SOHO store that I though was pretty cool. It was nothing short of an accomplishment in my eyes. This cap has been super fun to pair, and I’ve been using one key piece to further the urban aesthetic: bombers.

You’re probably thinking the bomber trend is far too overdone. Don’t take it from me, though. Take it from the holy grail of fashion:

“If it’s not immediately apparent from the runways, street style, and, yes, even Yeezy, we’ll spell it out for you: The bomber is in.” -Kristin Anderson, Vogue

I’m not a huge fan of the skater aesthetic. However, there’s something about this lustrous black bomber seemed oddly feminine to me. Despite the baggy silhouette, the slight sheen to the bomber’s fabric really brought something different to the look; especially since I really played with texture in this look.

In keeping with the New York, urban theme, I figured the corduroy texture would pair nicely with a similar suede. I opted for my all time favorite shoe style: thigh-high boots. It was a good way of bringing the top and bottom of the outfit together. After all, I went with a strong white contrast with my blouse and pants. Likewise, the addition of more black helped tie everything together and as always, sunglasses were the perfect finishing touch.
