Faux shearling and plush velvet, so aptly named Luna, come together in this gorgeous take on a modern day moto jacket. The cool-girl silhouette is a match made in heaven for leather leggings and embellished shoes or a clever way to dress down that floor-length dress you just couldn’t pass up. Whatever the case, a shearling-like lining will make sure you stay cozy until the ball drops at midnight.

River Island’s Faux Shearling Aviator Jacket can take you from the New Year’s Eve party to the after party—all the way into the early January morning. It’s a feminine take on The Arrivals’ Moya III oversized shearling jacket, a fashion girl favorite this season, but at a fraction of the price. Googly eyes aside, heavyweight faux leather, soft-touch lining, and, dare I say, functional pockets keep your hands warm and phone tucked safely away as you hop from one gathering to another.

New Year’s Eve is all about the glitz and the glam and getting all dolled up, so why not apply that to your outerwear as well? Leave your go-to leather jacket on the hanger this holiday in favor of a shiny pewter-finish one fit for the occasion. We aren’t surprised that Target’s WhoWhatWear collection is the brains behind this fashion-forward jacket, complete with edgy moto details and a sleek shine that are rarely combined. Throw over a tulle skirt or black jumpsuit for a fresh update on a classic NYE party pairing.
