Why the shearling coat is worth investing in

Coats/ Featured/ London/ Romantique/ Wardrobe

Just a few weeks left of this longest winter in history, or at least it feels that way! Winter is still keeping us in it’s freezing grip as if to prove it still has a few weeks hold over us!

It’s hard to find a coat that keeps you warm as well as looking decently stylish.  The shearling coat is one of those and went through a renaissance last year thanks to Acne’s biker style shearling coat, worn by many celebs including our favourite style icon Alexa Chung.

Formerly knows as sheepskin coat, the toasty jacket looks modern in urban shapes like a parka or a biker jacket. Its versatility is the biggest plus: Wear it up or down, pairing it with  your cocktail dress or your jeans and breton shirt like Parisians do!

I’m giving my shearling parka (Stefanel)  a French makeover, paired with red beret, casual jeans (Boss Orange) and chelsea boots (AGL). Sicilian embroidered basket by Sicily Bag.
