3 WAYS TO WEAR
Styling your aviator for spring
By Daisy Keens, 13 March 2017
Spring has (sort of) sprung, and the familiar ditch-the-coat feels are well and truly creeping up on us. But wait – hold up! Don't you dare throw your fave aviator to the back of your wardrobe. Resist the temptation to do away with the fuzzy stuff and allow German fashion editor Veronika Heilbrunner to school you on the smorgasbord of ways you can work that faux-shearling bad boy into your SS17 uniform.
Hands up if you ever thought a red, furry aviator would be a sartorial nightmare to navigate? Yup, thought so. Definitive proof that even the most bright and bold winter jacket can work with your sunshine state of mind, Veronika masterfully teamed hers with a floral, floor-length slip and cobble-proof combat boots. Skinny 90s choker = totally necessary.
Make like Veronika and don your cuddly coat with the dreamiest denim this side of summer (that colour, though <3). Keep the spring vibes alive with a fresh cropped tee and an embellished mini bag, ditching your delicate kicks for some technical trainers to give your jacket a weather-appropes playmate. Now watch as the outfit envy rolls in...
Partial to a bit of all-black everything? Good news: your oversized jacket works with that, too. Opt for ankle-grazing trews and bulky boots, making your top half matchy-matchy, before layering with a roll-neck. So far, so cool. But the v red cherry atop this monochromatic getup? Yup, your statement jacket. Outfit status: upgraded in an instant.
