It's a sure thing for Shearling
Shearling is all the rage this Autumn (the cliche, by the way, is intended, because I fear that shearling may unfortunately end up turning into a bit of an overused trend, one which everyone has a piece of, much like florals did this summer) It's on jackets, (Aviator style) boots, (ankle boots, of course) and even on the odd waistcoat. So what is the allure of a bit of dead sheep, with all its shepard connotations? One, it's an easy way to add a bit of country chic to any outfit. Two, its very, very cosy! And three, well, it was all over the Burberry Prorsum catwalks; need I say more?
