When the cold winter days arrive we all want to get bundled up into cozy and warm outerwear and one of those essential winter outerwear pieces is the aviator jacket. This jacket was originally called flight jacket, bomber jacket or so called bombardier jacket and eventually became part of popular culture and apparel. Because of its versatility and edgy vibe, fashion houses designers like Rag&Bone, Burberry Prorsum, Belstaff, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Julien MacDonald have made them an essential part of their fall/winter collections each season. We can learn from designers how to rock the aviator jacket. For example, inspired by youth and rebellious spirit Belstaff combines their leather and classic wax cotton aviator jackets with leather pants and skinny pants. On the other side Burberry Prorsum’s cropped shearling aviator jacket is given an feminine touch by styling it with colorful printed maxi dresses and skirts.
