Madame Aviator

Shearling and Aviation Jackets are a huge trend for fall as ads and editorials featuring the sought after Burberry jacket grace every magazine, blog, and fashion lover's wishlist. My favorite way to wear these jackets is with a dress. Here are some of my favorite aviation jacket / dress pairings, editorials, and a few budget friendly options.
Flacia de Oliveria's aviation Jacket was paired with a champagne colored pleated gown in Elle Spain creating a glamorous look.

Hilary Rhoda looks incredible pairing a rolled cuff aviation jacket with a bow front mini and delicate top in this Blanco Fall 2010 Campaign
For those who have been searching high and low for the perfect shearling jacket on a budget, H&M has a got your covered with this Aviator Shearling Jacket jacket for only $29.95.
I love the rich, brown, buttery leather, it has a nice finish and I love that the material is soft /supple enough for her to scrunch up her sleeves. (also love how its paired with a dress).
Burberry Prorsum shearling jacket, Lace Dress and Voluminous waves make this editorial in September's Harpers Bazaar Spain something to aspire to.

Warehouse (UK clothing site) has an announcement on their site that their Aviator Jacket will be coming soon, you can even get on their waiting list:
"The Sought after aviator jacket! The super soft chocolate shearling jacket is not only a can't-live-without-piece of the season but also an investment, the aviator is timeless and will never be out of style"

This whole look by Eddie Bauer is incredible; the Leather Aviator Jacket, Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses, and slim olive cargos.
Pairing your new shearling /aviation jacket with a dress is also a great way to wear some summer dresses into fall. The jacket makes the dress edgy and fall ready, while the dress keeps the jacket feminine.
And when the weather gets cold just throw on some leggings underneath your dress (like the H&M ad).
Have a lovely day everyone! :)
