1) Shearling-Lined Vest
The beauty of anything lined with shearling is the warmth it provides. The fuzzy texture is naturally insulating, keeping you toasty all season long. Which means that this layering option just might be the ultimate vest. Vests in general make creating a chic layered outfit easy, but shearling options are definitely a step up from the rest. Just incorporate an oversized sweater underneath – and et voila, you have the picture-perfect winter outfit.

2) Shearling and Vinyl Combo
Shearling textures tend to exude rustic, boho vibes. If you’re interested in glamorizing it for a special occasion, simply team the fuzzy material with a flashier counterpart. Enter the vinyl and shearling jacket – an outerwear style that marries the 90’s aesthetic with modern day dressing. We love how this influencer layers her vinyl and shearling coat over an itty-bitty sheer dress for a full nostalgic moment.

3) Bomber Jacket
The undeniable It Girl jacket of the year is the bomber jacket. While we adore an all leather version, a shearling collar or lining makes it much more fitting to tackle the cold. At first glance, you might think it leans more casual, but Venetia proves it looks just as good dressed up. In fact, the shearling bomber adds the perfect amount of edginess to a tailored outfit.

4) Maxi Coat
If you find the aforementioned shearling recommendations too subtle for you, then we bet this longline version will sweep you off your feet. The floor-grazing silhouette works overtime to keep the wearer extra snug. Plus, the maxi length adds a bit of drama to whatever outfit you decide to pair it with. Just shrug it on over your favorite trousers and sweater, add some stompy boots and you have an enviable winter outfit.

5) Toggle Jacket
For the ultimate shearling experience, look no further than the toggle jacket. This full fuzzy outerwear piece looks and feels like a dream. The toggle detailing itself is a charming, preppy addition that makes these coats stand out from among the rest. But don’t get it twisted. Just because it reads Ivy League doesn’t mean you can’t style it with your comfiest loungewear. In fact, it might just be our favorite way to rock shearling toggle jackets.

The texture cardigan or pullover is ideal for styling with your favorite jeans and snow boots. Statement-worthy on it’s own, there’s nothing else you need to pull the perfect winter outfit together.

It offers up an inviting alternative to your basic leather bag and the textural element instantly elevates any look.

Sherpa textures are now gracing the outside of some of winter’s best footwear options and we are loving every single one. They’re not only unexpected but lend a high-fashion appeal. Even the most casual denim outfits get a facelift with these in tow.
