This Autumn staple is an indispensable classic that won’t date, making it a great investment piece.

An aviator jacket is a mix between a flight jacket and biker jacket with a shearling or faux fur lining. Originally made for pilots during WW1 to keep them warm, but since adopted by pop culture as a style staple.

Now a popular wardrobe mainstay that’ll keep you warm during the chilly months, the aviator is a cosy alternative to the regular leather jacket that we want to snuggle up in from now through til Spring.

Although real leather and shearling comes at a high price tag, the highstreet has loads of great faux options that look expensive. So whether you are looking to splurge or save (its retro roots means you can find great vintage pieces) we’ve rounded up the best of the brands below, whatever your budget.

Aside from its glorious warmth and standout style, the aviator boasts great versatility. Typically designed in classic colours such as chestnut brown and black means it pairs well with a multitude of looks. Wear yours with denim and a light knit for more casual occasions, or layer over a mid-length autumnal floral dress and boots for a 70’s style feel.

We’re wearing ours around the city, and then for a weekend break in the country. An investment that’ll pay off time and time again.
