‘Tis the season for stowing away sandals and sundresses in lieu of more cool-weather appropriate items, and one of the things that remain best about the fall season is that even as trends ebb and flow, there’s always the promise of coming back to the coziest evergreen styles that only seem to get better with time. Fashion items with fuzzy attributes are bound to crop up in every corner as soon as temperatures drop, and among the options, shearling and sherpa styles prove to be some that are as trendy as they are practical for the season.
On the runways, shearling continues to resurface as an important outerwear element. For Fall 2022, there were utility tweed coats with contrasting shearling sleeves at Chanel, glossy leather jackets lined with the cozy interior at Prada, and giant lapels at Sacai and Stella McCartney. As the style continues to grow in popularity, more shearling styles designed for the look rather than for warmth are turning up as well, such as handbags or shoes that use shearling on the outside rather than the inside. While it may sound counterintuitive, it actually an effective way to begin incorporating shearling styles into your fall wardrobe, even if the weather isn’t quite on the same page — just yet.
We’ve rounded up some of the cutest styles to keep in the back of your mind as you take on fall shopping, from classic shearling jackets to fold-over booties.
