Winter Fashion: Rock Shearling Like a Fashion Blogger
Shearling’s appeal lies in its natural warmth and texture—two things we can’t say no to as the temperatures drop. Luckily, there are tons of ways to rock this cozy trend this season, from statement coats to fur-trimmed boots. Here’s how to wear shearling like a fashion blogger.
White Shearling Coat
Shearling coats come in a rainbow of hues, but, not surprisingly, it’s the neutral shades that are most wearable. Lainy of Haute Inhabit strikes an elegant note in her white shearling-paneled coat atop an all-black outfit.
’70s Shearling Jacket
We can’t talk about shearling without mentioning the season’s retro trend. This look spotted on the blog Carolines Mode demonstrates how to wear shearling to channel the ’70s—slip on a tan shearling jacket over a pussy-bow blouse and flared jeans.
Tall Shearling Boots
You don’t have to wait until the dead of winter to start sporting shearling. Stay cozy in transitional weather in a pair of tall shearling boots with a skirt and sweater like Michelle’s of Take Aim.
Those in warmer states should look to Krystal Schlegel for how to wear shearling this season. A plush shearling vest is going to be your perfect layering piece—slip one on over pieces as varied as a T-shirt, a light dress, or a chunky sweater.
Black Shearling Coat
Victoria Tornegren knows how to wear shearling to get that model-off-duty vibe. To channel her effortless look this winter, there are a few wardrobe updates you’ll need to make: Swap skinny jeans for leather pants, and ditch a leather moto jacket for a shearling one.
As the queen of effortlessly polished style, Olivia Palermo is your guide for how to wear shearling with luxe layers. The key, as with so many trends, is a balanced mix of textures. Palermo pulls off this look by pairing plush shearling over a tactile jacquard jacket and soft denim.
Cropped Shearling Jacket
Balancing proportions is super-important when it comes to a statement trend like shearling jackets. Case in point: We love this look we spotted on Carolines Mode. A boxy, cropped jacket will look best when it’s paired with wide-leg pants or a full skirt.
Oversized Shearling Coat
Wondering how to wear shearling coats before it gets too cold? Play up different proportions by teaming an oversized shearling coat with a mini, form-fitting dress or skirt. Rest the jacket on your shoulders as Aimee of Song of Style does for a carefree finishing touch.
We can’t write about how to wear shearling without mentioning shearling boots. Even Vogue announced the return of Ugg boots, noting that the season’s bohemian trend paved the way for their cozy comeback. For a look that’s equal parts comfortable and cute, copy this outfit formula on Caitlin of Southern Curls & Pearls: Pair an oversized knit top with super-skinny jeans tucked into neutral boots.
Camel Shearling Coat
The great thing about a shearling coat is it can pull together your entire outfit. Take this camel-colored version on Danielle of We Wore What—it’s the perfect piece to throw on over a tee and jeans.
Full shearling coats can look a bit bulky, so if you’re going for a more streamlined look, a shearling accessory is your ticket. As Leandra of Man Repeller can attest, a shearling scarf offers warmth and luxe, plush texture. Loop one around your neck over a military jacket or a tailored peacoat.
Shearling Moto Jacket
A shearling moto jacket is one piece that will prove its worth this season and beyond. Tap a modern bohemian look like this one on Style Du Monde by teaming yours with an intricately embroidered dress and over-the-knee boots.
