Inspiration: Aviation

I find myself coming back to classic aviation over and over again. There's just something I find so appealing about it. It's taking the styles of the 30's and 40's (my favorite decades) and combining it with flying and adventure. It takes the masculine aspects of menswear (bomber jackets and boots) and throws in femininity (fur collars and tight pants). I love the idea of throwing a bomber jacket over a dress or boots over riding pants. Honestly, how chic and cool does the girl in the first photo look? That's what this trend epitomizes, and rightfully so.
