Shearling: this seasons style essential

January 02, 2011


Sheepskin was once the domain of second hand car salesmen and market traders. The once 'Del Boy' labelled look has now been revamped and re-branded by PR Gods this Autumn/Winter with the name ‘Shearling’.

Gone are the days of sheepskin linings, designers like Prada and Phoebe Philo have created a whole new look; trimmed boots, sweeping capes, car coats and of course, Buberry’s Aviator.

Done right, you get super cosy, on trend outdoorwear; done wrong, you’re in danger of looking like you live in a cave.

Shearling has a relaxed feel about it (unlike fur), so you can be bang on trend whilst pairing it with jeans and a jumper. It’s also completely unisex, meaning everyone can enjoy this season’s trend.

It’s definitely an investment, however if your budget doesn’t stretch to Prada, visit Ugg Australia. They have been using Shearling for years, and are now the public’s most popular outlet for the latest trend. Other more affordable outlets worth looking at are Topshop, Boohoo and Asos.
