Is there anyone out there who wasn’t crazy about some aspect of the Burberry Prorsum fall/winter 2010 collection? From the draped, ruched mini dresses, to the over-the-knee boots, to the completely delicious cropped shearling jackets—it was a sensation at the minimum, iconic at the max. And you can see why. The Shearling Funnel Neck Aviator Jacket looks like a cloud in the form of a clothing. If I could justify $3.5k for it, I so would.

Banana Republic Leather Sherpa Bomber Jacket

Update (11/15/2016): More than three years after our last Burberry Prorsum jacket steal find, Banana Republic decided to revive the (faux) shearling aviator trend and came up with an amazing Burberry-inspired alternative. It’s quite expensive at $1.400 (retail price), but also so, so gorgeous much so more affordable than the real deal’s $3.595, don’t you agree?

When the Spring/Summer 2010 Ready-to-Wear Shows debuted last fall, I was more than ready to wear the entire Balmain military-inspired collection. The leather! The epaulets! The olive green! Sure, one half of me is all stilettos and champagne, but the other half is pure Lara Croft—so there is just something about soldiers…uh…camo, combat boots, and military styling that gets me. Attennnnnn-TION! Balmain’s S/S 2010 collection is where military meets civilian in the chicest (and sexiest) way possible.

Balmain S/S 2010 Military Chic

So where my Balmain military tour comes to an abrupt end is when I remember it’s Balmain, and it’s expensive (and I’m sure I’m not the only one in that camp). But that’s the great thing about living in these times. There are scores of realistically-priced pieces available so you can unleash your inner G.I. Jane and not feel like a bomb just dropped when you open your credit card statement. And hey, you don’t even have to do the recon yourself. We’ve assembled a fantastic array of lower-priced items to help you build your military look now.
