I love winter. No, honestly I do! Christmas markets, mulled wine, cozy fireplaces and winter fashion. But, London can be hard - as you never know if the day will bring wind and rain, clear skies or even snow - where the city comes to a complete standstill. So you combat the versatility in weather - you need to arm yourself with versatile clothing.
What better than shearling? Well, actually faux-shearling ;). This years hottest jacket trend- these coats feel luxurious from the get go. And if you go faux- you can get the look for a fraction of the cost and wear it guilt free. These coats always conjure up images of fighter pilots and wilderness men.
These coats will make anything you wear underneath instantly cooler. One of the trends of late was pairing a shearling coat with something sporty, or even more 70s inspired fashion. Other types of fabrics, like denim, plaid and corduroy offer a more rugged feel to these looks. You can always choose to dress up - pairing it with a pair of dark trousers- and thick boots.
In my case, something as simple as a jumper and trousers is instantly elevated to fashionable with a coat like this. And in times like this when staying warm and dry is a must- these coats deliver.
