Cosy and cool, a shearling jacket is a go-to for the winter months. If you’re in the market for one, we’ve edited out the very best, from investment pieces you’ll treasure forever to high street heroes that belie their humble price tag.

Shearling makes a return every winter whether it’s in the form of an Acne-esque aviator or a vintage-inspired sheepskin coat – we like to think of it as the cool girl’s classic. This season is no exception, in fact, sheepskin is everywhere right now and there’s something to suit every budget and taste.

For designer investment pieces look to the likes of Isabel Marant, Joseph and Nanushka who all have stunning options instore. There’s Marant’s ‘80’s-inspired Abeni jacket, with its patchwork panels and retro buttons, we love it paired with cable knit, denim and this season’s knee-high boot; while Joseph’s Calla jacket with oversized collar comes in classic black for a timeless, versatile options or, our favourite, the matte grey design which will add a more contemporary edge to your working wardrobe – we love it layered over a simple black polo neck and tailored trousers.

If there’s one coat that’s been making all the waves on Instagram it’s Totéme’s oversized shearling jacket. It was a huge hit last winter being spotted on the likes of Laura Wills AKA Fashion Bug Blog and Hannah Stafford-Taylor and it’s back for AW22 with two additional colourways – black and a warm chocolate brown. It pairs perfectly with everything from leather trousers to mini skirts, tights and chunky boots. There are also plenty more affordable iterations hitting the high street, from Zara to Next and that Mango dupe that keeps on coming back only to sell out days later. Keep your eyes peeled for the next drop here.

From aviator styles inspired by Acne’s cult classic to vintage-inspired cuts and dressier midi styles, the high street has some great shearling offerings this season. Favourites have to be Zara’s Double-Faced Jacket in rich brown – the oversized biker cut is not only super cosy but instantly adds nonchalant cool to a simple jeans and knit combo. Whilst Per Una’s Textured Reversible Jacket gives two jackets for the price of one and is slim enough to fit under a heavy duty winter coat for added warmth on really cold days.



The shearling jacket to end all shearling jackets, Isabel Marant’s patchwork of dreams takes prime place on our AW22 wish list.
