Ten seriously cool high-street shearling jackets to shop now

Shearling, oh how I’ve been waiting for you! In honour of autumn’s debut, I’ve been on the hunt for the most perfect shearling jacket. But I found ten.  Autumn is all about doubling up on cosy layers, and I can’t wait to find my new signature cocoon because honestly, what’s more comfortable than shearling? It’s like wearing around a giant, warm hug.

Orginally worn by fighter pilots shearling jackets breathe old-school nostalgia. Today, designers including Dior, Philosophy, Burberry, and Tod’s, have introduced a modern twist with boxy cropped designs, vintage patchwork, and colourful styles. Coming in a myriad of classic neutral shades, but also in hyper-hued dyed colours, you couldn’t miss this warm fabric, it’s one of the leading coat trends for AW18. While I’m absolutely on board for shearling everything and anything, I prefer reaching for rainbow colours, printed knee-grazing cocoon coats, ultra-fuzzy textures, and something oversized, like a fluffy blanket.

I’d pair any shearling jacket with stretchy corduroy pants and white low-rise ankle boots for autumnal perfection, with a quirky charm. For a feminine touch, wear yours with a straight-leg jean and a floral blouse. Whatever the style, keep it cosy. And don’t forget your Pumpkin Spice Latte and a cute beanie; then you’ll really have autumn written all over you.

You know there’s nothing more exciting than going on that first cold-weather shopping trip. So in order to make your life slightly easier, I’ve sussed out some cosy shearling jackets that are difficult to resist. Check-out my edit below. Happy shopping!
