The famous old saying, “March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb” does not hold much truth. The first part is dead on but the latter is not so accurate. Since March has started, we’ve been graced with a couple sunny, somewhat warm days, but we are nowhere near lamb status. The calendar says spring but our goose bumps say winter. Because of the early spring chill, it can be incredibly difficult to decide what to wear.
Enter the shearling denim jacket. This baby is the ultimate end of March piece and can keep you warm without the bulk of a puffy coat. Shearling made a comeback in the fashion world with Acne Studios fall/winter 2013 collection with a shearling lined leather jacket. The trend took off from there and thank goodness it did.
But how to style it? The great thing about shearling jackets is that they can be worn so many different ways. This Fashionista chose to dress hers up just a bit. She wears a bright and colorful floral shirt tucked into a black mini skirt. She adds some black tights, which is perfect for the typical 40 to 50-degree weather. She then finishes off the adorable outfit with a pair of black studded ankle boots that toughen up her look just enough.
How To: Shearling jackets are both cozy and versatile. Dress yours up like this Fashionista with a mini skirt or dress and booties, or make it causal with a pair of jeans, a striped T-shirt and some sneakers.
