No woman’s wardrobe is complete without a failsafe coat. Striking the perfect balance between elegant and understated, the aviator jacket is the piece that you’ll be wearing with every outfit for seasons to come. 

Spring has arrived but dependable weather conditions have not. When faced with the prospect of rain, wind and even the occasional moment of sunshine in a single day, planning an outfit for the day ahead can seem like an impossible take. What’s the secret to dressing for the unpredictable climes of our temperamental island? It all lies in curating your personal library of coats. 

Like an investment It bag, perfect pair of jeans or classic white shirt, a great coat should be the backbone of every woman’s wardrobe. The oversized blazer, the chic camel and the practical puffer are all worthy contenders for the title of must-have jacket, but for spring 2020 we’ve fallen back in love with the eternally cool aviator jacket.

Indeed, an aviator never goes out of style, making it the perfect investment piece to splurge on now and wear on heavy rotation for years to come.
