Shearling: A Hot New Trend and How to Wear It Well

Is there anything that is cozier than shearling?  We think not.  This fuzzy fabric has been a mainstay of rugged men’s coats, and got a nod in the smash Netflix hit “Stranger Things”, where several main characters sported jackets with shearling collars. This ultra plush fabric has made the leap to the runway, and is receiving some well deserved recognition this season.  Here are some of our favorite ways to wear shearling well this year.
