Is it just me, or are shearling coats dominating Instagram right now? Between Totême’s bestselling leather-trim design and, ahem, a certain Mango jacket, everyone under the sun (or the UK’s snowy skies) seems to be adding a cosy cover-up to their roster.
The practical benefits of shearling, whether faux or real, hardly needs to be spelled out. If you’ve been hit by a a biting winter breeze even once in your life, you’ll understand the primal urge to bundle up in the softest, most teddy bear-like thing you can find—and shearling is pretty close.
Knowing this, brands and designers have pulled out all the stops and fashioned this insulating material into some seriously stylish outerwear this season. Simple cropped silhouettes, retro duffle coats and even a bold pink-trimmed design have made it onto our wish lists, so it’s safe to say we’re hooked on the look.
The best bit? Thanks to some of our favourite influencers, we haven’t had to think too hard about how to style our new winter wardrobe hero. Scroll on to see the best outfits out there.
