Amelia Earhart, pioneer and trend-setter? So says the throngs of stores stocking up on aviator-inspired jackets for fall 2010. Sheepskin, shearling, leather and fur croppers kept models warm as they hit the Fall 2010 runways at 3.1 Phillip Lim, Mulberry, Derek Lam, and more.

It comes as no surprise that Burberry, the global luxury brand built around the premise of looking chic while battling inclement weather, would catapult this winter time wardrobe piece. About his Fall 2010 line, creative director Christopher Bailey told Style.com that, "I was thinking of uniforms and cadet girls-but it all started when I looked at an aviator jacket in the archive. Then, as I started designing into it, I realized it could be as versatile as the trench-strong and sexy, masculine and feminine."

Adorned with buckles, zippers and notched collars – we found similar versions for under $200 are for the bold fashionistas who are willing to sign up for style duty with out breaking the bank.

Feel free to pair this topper with a girly lace dress or slouchy menswear trousers to complete the look. Finish off your ensemble with the season's chunkiest fall jewelry.
