STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stylish in Shearling

Style Advice of the Week

Spring break has come and gone, so it’s time to shed those bulky winter layers in favor of lighter, brighter pieces. Though there’s yet another snow storm set to hit the District, warmer weather is on the way (at least it should be). It’s time to swap out your winter coats for lighter jackets. This Fashionista’s black shearling jacket is a trendy and fashion-forward answer to the rising temperatures. It’s not yet warm enough to go without a jacket, but it’s time for a lighter one.

Shearling jackets have been a trend for the last couple of years and now it looks like they’re here to say. Jackets are a perfect way to complete an outfit, adding both style and warmth. No matter what you wear underneath, your look is instantly more put together. The shearling lining adds rich texture to the all-black jacket. The draped, open front adds an unexpected, stylish touch and shows off a bright cobalt top. Cobalt blue and black are a classic color combo that’s bold but surprisingly easy to wear. Cobalt is flattering to most skin tones, so it’s an easy way to introduce color into your wardrobe.

This Fashionista wears a black shearling jacket with a cobalt flowy top, black skinny pants and short motorcycle boots with gold accents. The gold hardware on the boots adds to the edginess of the black jacket and black pants when paired with a pop of cobalt. A delicate silver necklace is the only jewelry the outfit needs. Cat-eye sunglasses add to the cool, downtown vibe of the outfit.

Invest in a lighter jacket that will last you through the spring and into fall. Because of the dark color, this jacket could be worn in multiple seasons, making it a great buy. Look forward to warmer days ahead!
