Aviator jackets are a trend that returns every year as soon as the temperatures drop, combining a laid-back silhouette with a cosy shearling line. Also known as flight jackets, the timeless style was originally created for pilots, but has become a staple fashion piece for winter, and it's no surprise why.
As they often come in neutral colours such as black and brown, aviator jackets are suitable for styling with just about anything in your wardrobe, while the leather or faux leather design is one that will never go out of style, so it's the perfect investment if you're looking for a cosy jacket that will stand the test of time.
Great for both day and night dressing, an aviator jacket can be styled with leather trousers, dresses and maxi skirts for winter. An oversized version will work well teamed with a pair of wide-leg jeans and trainers for an effortless look, or you could enhance the silhouette by wearing the outerwear with a fitted maxi dress and heels for a put-together evening ensemble.
