One of the key finishes you’ll be seeing on a lot of outerwear this season is shearling. A throwback to the 70s, shearling has been adopted by many a brand this year to bring classic aesthetic, extra warmth and added detail to a whole range of jacket and coat styles. But what ones should you be going for? Well, we’ve picked out the best jackets in store and how to style them.
Shearling jackets are an essential piece of outerwear and a stylish way to keep warm during winter. With different types of jackets for you to choose from, you’ll be able to find the one that suits personal style and occasions best. Whether you’re dressing for a casual or formal scenario, this jacket is incredibly versatile.
Denim Sheepskin Jacket
The style we’ll start with is the denim shearling jacket. Denim is a key material for every guy to have in his clothing collection so the Levi’s trucker jackets are a key component to any transitional wardrobe. The deep indigo makes it seriously versatile and the shearling collar just adds a touch more uniqueness to it. You’re not gonna have any trouble styling this, don’t be scared to go for double denim. A black pair of jeans and a blue denim shearling jacket with some clean white trainers will give you a casual look perfect for a Sunday stroll. If you don’t want to go for double denim, you can always rely on a pair of sand chinos instead.
Men’s Sheepskin Coat
If you don’t already have a leather jacket then it’s about time you invest in one. Many people are often put off as soon as they hear the word leather. However, this is a menswear classic that’s here to stay. It adds a real edge to your style and is easy to transition in to any winter outfit. Men’s Suede Coat
Suede might not be the most obvious choice for the winter with the rain and all that but everything changes when you realise how warm and wind protective they are. The warmth of the lining of a men’s shearling jacket means that this style is one of the most insulating. Plus, if you usually steer away from shearling for ethical reasons, you won’t have to worry about that with our very own faux shearling jacket. One thing to note is that suede needs to be looked after and of course you shouldn’t march out in the rain wearing it, so keep it looking smart and you’ll be warmer than ever.
The Puffa Coat
This Alpha Industries jacket with a shearling finish is perfect for the winter months. Go for a casual pair of bottoms with a T-shirt and open shirt over the top. Add a hat and some chunky boots to finish off the look to make sure you’re ready for the cold winter months. With this outfit you’ll have a smart yet rugged look that hits all the right trends. Easy.
Sheepskin Bomber Jacket
Now for a real classic. As we know, bombers are the kings of casual jackets so, having one with a shearling collar is all sorts of cool. Unbelievably easy to style, highly durable and given a retro shape, this will be a regular in your wardrobe for years to come. Team it with jeans, your favourite boots and a plain sweatshirt for an easy-going style.
Black Shearling Coat
If you’re looking for an alternative to the classic brown shearling coat, a men’s black coat might be the best option for you. Perfect for smart casual occasions and great for the evening, this sheepskin coat will keep you warm during the cold months ahead. And of course, black is a main staple colour that should be present in every mans wardrobe – it’s easy to style, easy to keep clean and will go with basically everything.
