These shearling coats are the ultimate in chic winter style

Calling to mind the cool-girl appeal of ’70s music icons, the shearling coat 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 Chloé to Yves Salomon are championing a luxe bohemian take on this long-serving staple. Minimalists will adore Loro Piana’s elegant version, while maximalists will appreciate Bottega Veneta’s maxi number, with its tasseled hemline. Hibernate in an oversized, textural shearling cocoon like Erika Boldrin, or follow Paloma Elsesser’s lead and choose a fuzzy statement coat, paired with coordinating tonal separates for an elevated take on off-duty dressing. Whether you style yours with jeans and winter boots by day or a silky slip dress and sandals for festive occasions, the shearling coat promises to elevate whatever you’re hiding beneath it.
