Key Trends - Winter Jackets

As winter is fast approaching I thought it was about time to start looking at the key trends in warm cozy jackets for this season. The 2 most obvious trends for jackets are the Military Coat and the Aviator Jacket.
I have always been a fan of military style coats so am happy to see them back for another season. In the summer they were mostly short cropped jackets but this winter they are a longer knee length.
Here are my favourite ones from the highstreet, all at a reasonable price:

The Military

I'm not a big fan of the aviator but I do think they are a great alternative to the leather biker jackets, which were fashionable in the summer. The added fur collar means they are great for a little more warmth in the winter. I like them most when they are made of a nice brown leather (faux or real) or brown suede, It gives them a more authentic vintage look.

The Aviator

So which do you guys like the most?

Obviously the cape is also really big this season, but I think they deserve a post all of their own, which I shall do later in the week.

Off to London for a day trip in just an hour or so. Shall be visiting Beyond Retro for the first time, shall bring you all some nice pictures tomorrow!

  1. I like the aviator jacket thing but I'm already getting bored of it and it's barely even AW yet! Thanks for pointing out some alternatives... :)

  2. Great post! I have my eye on a coat in M&S (I feel tres old saying that!)

    Hope you have a great time in London x

  3. I love the military style, too. I'd buy most of these coats you've posted.

    Hope you're having an amazing time in London! =)

  4. Iike the Peacocks and the Oasis Military coats the most and I LOVE the topshop Aviator Jacket!!

    Have a great week! xxx

  5. I am so on the lookout for an awesome aviator jacket. I love the military jacket too. This makes me so excited for it to get cold!

  6. i love military style jackets. i got one last november while i was in san francisco, and it is absolutely my favorite, and the only one i've worn since then!

  7. Oli and fashion union are my faves for the military style, though I've already got a navy military inspired jacket, so I might have to pass on a second.

    And the aviator jackets are lovely as well, perhaps I could just switch out the fur collar I have for my leather biker jacket for a shearling one and call it a day?

    Chic on the Cheap

  8. While I'm probably more likely to wear a military style jacket (that fashion union one especially), I'm seriously digging that Topshop Aviator jacket. It'd be just the edge I'd like to have with my classic pieces. Love it!

  9. i had beyond retro on my list but didn't make it!!! i can't wait to see your pics!

  10. I'm obsessed with the shearling aviator jackets. They are SO fabulous.
