The Timeless Jacket Trend You'll Get Compliments on for Years to Come

There's been one jacket making the rounds on A-listers and street-style stars lately, and that would be Khaite's shearling and leather aviator jacket. (Celebrities like Alexa Chung and Laura Harrier were recently spotted wearing it, just so you know.) But it's not just Khaite that has leaned into the pilot-inspired outerwear trend. There are so many other labels out there interpreting the leather aviator jacket, which often features a shearling collar, a zipper up the middle, and knit cuffs. Other features can include buckles at the neck for an extra snug fit and shearling trim along the hem, cuffs, and even the pockets. 

Original flight jackets were made with shearling and sheepskin lining because the planes had no insulation, but it's for this reason that they're a great option for freezing cold winter days. Buy yours oversize to layer chunky sweaters underneath or get one that's fitted and cropped for more of a fashion (rather than functional) statement.

Below, I've rounded up 30 of the best leather aviator jackets in all different colors, each with their own unique details. Did I mention they're selling extremely fast? Better start scrolling. 

Similar to the Khaite style, but at way less than half the price. 

Would love to zip myself up in this design. 

With a glossy sheen and green textured lining, you'll definitely stand out. 

Always a sucker for contrasting trim. 

Black and brown is a combo that will never do you wrong. 

The ultra-thick collar on this will come in handy on those especially windy winter days. 

Can't beat the price on this cozy-looking aviator jacket with some puffer action. 

The brown leather and beige collar are a match made in heaven. 

When you mix an aviator jacket with the quilting trend, you get this gorgeous piece as a result. 

This chocolate hue is absolutely drool-worthy. (Pun intended.) 

All eyes will be on you when you wear Prada's take on the trend. 

The trim on the pockets is just the most stylish, don't you think? 

Throw on this black-and-white number to shield yourself from cold weather. 

Use the buckles at the neck to really strap yourself in—and keep any icy temps out.

Opt for some bold color with this orange jacket. 

Here's one with a slight crop for those who prefer their jackets on the shorter side. 

If you really want that Top Gun look, go for this old-school design. 

While aviator jackets usually have a zipper up the front, I couldn't resist this green number with textured cuffs, pockets, and collar. 

If you need even more convincing, this happens to be on major sale.  

I call this look "Penny Lane meets flight school."  

Go for a navy jacket if you want something different than brown or black. 

Okay, so just the pockets and trim are leather, but the mixed materials are just so eye-catching. 

So there's only one size left of this jacket, but it was too perfect not to include if you wanted something solid black. 

This faux-leather style has dark brown trim and cream shearling texture to make a stunning piece of outerwear. 

Save money and look stylish in this brown Bershka jacket that just so happens to be on sale.
