Inspiration of the Week: Shearling Jackets

Isn’t it great when a fashion trend is gorgeous and practical? I’m all for puffer jackets coming back. If I were the kind of person who looked cool in athleisure instead of resembling a retired lesbian soccer coach, I would be alllll over that trend as well.

Shearling is one such trend! From the runway at Proenza Schouler to street style celebs, shearling jackets have been everywhere this winter and with damn good reason. For one, they’re warm. I respect your ability to wear a light satin bomber jacket in 5 degree weather. The flu you will inevitably contract following that sartorial decision, I respect less.

But also, the modern shearling coat is so cool-looking and urban that it’s a great alternative to the longer classic styles I usually gravitate towards. It’s very Londoner-walking-in-Shoreditch-smoking-a-cig-and-listening-to-cool-alternative-music-in-a-retro-walkman (which, by the way, would make an excellent name for a new shade of paint at the Home Depot).

Here are some of my favourite ways to style shearling as well as some shoppable options for you wonderful people. Stay furry my friends.
