Black Shearling Leather Jacket
It's shearling season!
Generally I do not like cold weather, but I do love the fashion. One unfortunate charactistisic about Texas, or maybe Dallas rather, is the weather is so unpredictable! Today, however, was a struggle for me as I need to ease into this more frigid weather.
I knew a shearling jacket would make its way into my wardrobe in the coming months, and I was ready for it! This ASOS shearling jacket is a knock out. I really love the large oversized pockets. I'm sometimes particularly fond of slightly exaggerated elements in my outerwear. Although it's easy to want to go over the top to match the feel of the garment, you definitely want to keep the rest of the outfit simple and understated. Let the jacket be the statement – you want it to look effortless. I thought I'd continue the theme of the outfit and keep it military with the boots as well. I snagged these Zara Mountain boots on sale during Black Friday (by the way, please tell me I'm not the only one who went a little too hard during Black Friday!) I adore the hard edge of these boots, and they totally tie into the utilitarian theme.
There's definitely room in your closet for a shearling jacket. It makes a statement and is not a typical trend, but there's a ton a ways to style it. Just make sure that it fits your style and overall aesthetic.
