Vintage Bomber Jacket + Fishnet Tights + Wax Print

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

I took a break from studying for my finals to head over to the Annual Vintage Fashion Market (Marché de la Mode Vintage) in Lyon this weekend. For the occasion, there were three things that I really wanted to wear: Sidney’s vintage bomber jacket he got in Camden Town, my fishnet tights from ASOS and my Burkinabè wax print scarf from my mom. I had worn all three separately, but the same way I get food cravings, I get fashion cravings. If you add having a bad hair day to the mix, this is what I came up with:

My favorite thing about this outfit is how well the colors go together and how different each piece is. Starting with the bomber jacket: Sidney and I went to Urban Outfitters in Camden Town (London) last October and we found this beautiful thing. Its soft, silky material is perfect for the warmer weather.

Oh yes, and that Russian badge gives a fierce military touch to this ensemble.

My mom gave me some beautiful wax print scarves from Burkina Faso. This one is my favorite design because of the vibrant colors, so I decided to wear it with the outfit. It’s also a great way for me to style my hair when I don’t feel like detangling it. I chose this particular style because it’s vintage!

Yes, you guessed it. Those are my fishnet tights peeking out from under my customized destroyed jeans. I purposely destroyed these jeans for this very purpose. I love fishnet tights and find them especially edgy under ripped denim.

I customized these black high-rise jeans from New Look by taking a pair of scissors and cutting the knees out. Then I made a slit on the upper thigh of the right leg and then another slit at the back of the upper left thigh.

Finally, I wore black sock boots from Zara to accentuate my legs.
