Here’s why a classic shearling jacket is the only outerwear you need this winter

There’s no denying that as days get colder, ‘rugging up’ will soon mean more than merely pulling on a long sleeve. And as we look to our wardrobes for cold-weather solutions that don’t compromise a well-considered outfit, there is one jacket that stands above the rest for its timeless style and textural quality — the shearling.

While the shearling jacket has had its moments in and out of fashion’s favour (and a number of iterations throughout the years) it really is a style that transcends trends. Our advice? Invest in a shearling jacket that will see you through more than one winter by sticking to classic styles and versatile tones. Think black leather or tan suede, with trim kept to a palette of neutrals.

Once you find that perfect shearling jacket, it will be more than just a look-enhancing layer. It will keep you warm through winter’s most inclement days — and piece to which you can always turn when in need a little something extra.
