This season, we are judging you by the lining of your coat. Regardless of the fact whether it is genuine leather or that fashionable faux fur that we actually prefer, the shearling trend is infiltrating more and more both street style and the catwalk. We see in all over jackets and coats. And apart from the fact that it keeps us warm, it also gives that particular mountain look that matches the city so perfectly.
Oh yes, that shearling jacket or coat. It quickly became a favourite piece of clothing for a number of celebrities and bloggers. We pair it with a long flower-pattern dress or our favourite skinny jeans. We imagine the perfect outfit with a beige aviator shearling jacket, dark jeans and a nude sweater, for instance. This type of jackets and coats has become a part of models’ uniforms in recent years. They wear them with low ponytails and almost invisible makeup.
If you still have doubts regarding the colour, we can help you out immediately. Shearling jackets (or the faux shearling ones) vary from all shades of beige so they can reach brown, dark green and black with characteristic aplomb. The truth is that this is yet another piece that we borrow from the men’s wardrobe. Its volume corresponds perfectly to lighter and more floaty materials. You are free to risk with colours and shapes! And in order to reach a cosmic level with your total look, just put the final touch with a nice pair of sunglasses. Then you will be absolutely ready for the chilly wind in Paris or Milan. And for those girls who feel bolder, we suggest that you go directly for pink or white – there is no way for you to remain unnoticed!
