If you buy two things this Autumn...

...make sure you're splurging on a shearling aviator jacket and a pair of OTK's (over the knee boots dahling).

Nothing says sexy but warm like this dynamic duo. Spotted all over the runways last Feb for the A/ W 2010 shows, done to perfection by British fashion powerhouse Burberry, both pieces are the key to Autumnal elegance and winter splendour.

The Jacket

The inspiration for this jacket is the fighter pilot from the 50's. That lot sure knew how to fly those choppers with style- nothing to do with the figure of eights-it was all about the The Shearling Aviator jacket. Its tough but sexy, pilot Amelia Earheart set the bar for this trend over 50 decades ago...work it girlfriend!

This piece looks best in a deep brown weathered looking leather (though tan can look equally sexy), add to that the divine sheep lining and fur collar and you have a jacket that will act as the perfect winter warmer for this season. Rock this piece with skinny jeans and plain t's during the day or with flapper or ruched style dresses, headbands and kitten heels in the evening.

The Boots

Whoever thought we would be looking to Ms Whiplash, the notorious 1980's brothel madam, for style inspiration! But fashion knows no bounds and OTK's are still the hottest way to trot this winter following on from their success in A/ W 2009.
These boots that scream naughty night time can can work during the day over slim fit trousers paired with a chunky knit cardigan. For the evening wear a slinky, embellished top and a pair of dark skinny's. The brave can go for an a line mini!
