Shearling has had an upgrade and is now lining jackets, bags and even the insides of shoes. These are the pieces to shop now.
As the unspoken rule in fashion says: where Rihanna goes, the rest of us will soon follow.
It’s been true of the style sphere’s love-in with Cuban-style bowling shirts, it’s been true of its frisson with head-to-toe Bottega (ever the bad gal, Rihanna was one of the first to champion Daniel Lee’s illustrious designs) and it’s true this winter, as fashion goes hard for shearling, both real and faux.
We should’ve seen the return of shearling coming after Rihanna sported a cropped jacket courtesy of New York brand R13 in April 2021. After all, seven months on from the Fenty Beauty founder’s first foray into shearling and it’s now everywhere. Adorned on bags, jackets and even the lining of shoes.
The beauty of shearling lies in its ability to keep you warm without having to compromise on style, for here’s a swaddling material that’s in equal parts soft and sumptuous as it is statement-making and stylish. It’s a win-win for taking this from a bleak to a chic mid-winter.
