Aviator jackets are a trend that returns every year, 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 will never go out of style, so it'll make a stylish investment for those in need of a cosy jacket that they can wear for a lifetime. 

Great for both day and night dressing, an aviator jacket can be styled with leather trousers, dresses and maxi skirts for winter, and they can be thrown on over lighter outfits during the transitional seasons, too. 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.
