Move over military jackets, there’s a new addition taking over and it’s bound to stay through fall- We welcome the Aviator Jacket! I haven’t picked up a Fashion Magazine that isnt going gaga for this latest trend. Also, because of Designer Houses Burberry, ADAM, DKNY and Julien Macdonald, High Street stores are making replicas to die for! Topshop has made a 100% sheepskin flying jacket now while ASOS, M&S, Next and even Tesco has managed to incorporate this trend to their new season collection (talk about popular!)
Still not keen? Here’s something to push you over the edge – Flying jackets are so easy to wear you won’t have a hard time dressing for it. Skinny jeans and ankle boots will score you points while day dresses with thigh high boots would take you to greater fashion heights! I would also suggest leggings for a tougher boyish look. Tap into femininity with a racer-back maxi dress and shoe boots. Get compliments by accessoring your flying jacket with stand-out hues of next season – Leopard print, camel and army green!
Nicola Roberts, Alexa Chung and Blake Lively have already boarded flight with their jackets and are setting chic ways to embrace this fast-growing number. For a first bite into Autumn/Winter 2010, you might be shaken but when you think about the warmth you would get from the furry lining on those cold nights, you’ll find maximum satisfaction in an Aviator Jacket!
