Everybody’s wearing shearling coats

Calling to mind the cool-girl appeal of ’70s music icons, this winter-weather mainstay is a true buy-now, wear-forever piece

The shearling coat’s perennial cool was immortalized by music legends such as Janis Joplin and Marianne Faithful. This season, designers from Prada to Saint Laurent are championing a luxe bohemian take on this long-serving staple. Minimalists will adore The Row’s elegant version, while maximalists will appreciate Balenciaga’s boldly colorful number. Hibernate in an oversized, textural shearling cocoon à la Julie Pelipas, or follow Caroline Daur’s lead and choose a capacious varsity-style jacket offset with caramel-toned leather finishes. Whether you style yours with jeans and winter boots by day or a silky slip dress and sandals after dark, the shearling coat promises to elevate whatever you’re hiding beneath it.
