The Winter weather we’ve been hearing about for months has finally arrived and things are about to get rather chilly in Europe! I was in Paris this week and it was positively arctic in temperature, the snow even made a cheeky appearance which was a nice surprise. Paris is a special city in any condition and even more impressive in a ‘white out’, but I must admit I was feeling very grateful that I’d packed a cosy shearling (and my gloves!)
The shearling jacket has long been a fashion classic and wardrobe staple, versatile and practical in equal measure, whilst being a real statement piece. I’ve always been a huge fan, particularly when combined with a roll neck (I know, surprise surprise!) it can look ultra smart and will of course keep your upper torso seriously toasty, no matter what the conditions.
With this sudden cold drop it is the perfect time to make an investment and add a shearling to your Autumn Winter armoury. There’s the added bonus that many brands still have sales on and outerwear can be as much as 50% reduced in price like my particular jacket from REISS.
Look for a darker colour, it will be easier to style and will stand the test of time. Black or dark navy are timeless and will look decent with all manner of colour combinations. Just be sure to pick up some high quality clothing suede spray to guarantee all-weather protection and don’t forget the gloves!
What will you guys be rocking this Winter to keep out the cold?!
