Aviator jackets are huge for autumn – these are the best ones to buy on the high street | The Sun

AVIATOR jackets is an outerwear trend that is going nowhere, much to our delight. 

The style is popular every autumn and winter, as it provides warmth, comfort, but is super stylish too. 

Aviator jackets, also known as flight jackets, have been styled off the American Army’s Aviation Clothing Board back in 1917. 

At the time they were not so much a fashion statement, but a necessity and part of the official uniform. 

Fast forward over 100 years, and the style is back, and now considered one of the most fashion able trends around. 

Aviator jackets are similar to a bomber jacket, but have a thick collar, as well as a shearling, or fur-lined interior, for extra warmth. 

The on-trend style comes in a variety of designs, from leather outerwear, various inner linings, cropped, regular, oversize and longer lengths, as well as different colourways. 

High street brands, including Mango, M&S, as well as River Island, and many other retailers, have plenty of Aviator jackets to shop. 

We have sifted through the online shelves and rails to find the best aviator jackets for you to invest in this winter, and rely on for many more years to come, because, let’s face it, this trend is revived every year.

River Island

River Island is one of the go-to high street brands we swear by for everything, from outerwear to jeans, stylish dresses and comfy clothes too.

Reiss is another high end high street retailer to shop for aviator jackets. 

What we love about this design, and makes the hefty price tag a little more justifiable, and it's two-in-one because it is reversible.

For those in need of a cropped aviator jacket to see you through the season, and is slightly more flattering than the longer designs, PLT has you covered.
