The Autumn winter season is all about celebrating texture and fabric and what better way to lead that charge than with the ever so fluffy shearling jacket, also referred to as the pile jacket.
Pile is a texture that will always be a staple in the autumn-winter wardrobe. The sheep-like texture is prized for its warmth and cosiness and can be used as a layering item when piecing your winter look together.
What are the best shearling jackets to own?
When it comes to shearling jackets, there is a multitude of silhouettes you can choose.
The pile gilet.
The gilet has been trending throughout menswear in 2020 with the utility jacket becoming an essential layering piece during spring-summer. Now that the temperature has dropped the pile gilet can take its place.
Style over knitwear or a top for the milder days and layer under your favourite fall outerwear for the colder months.
The pile jacket.
If the gilet doesn’t give you enough sheep energy, then the pile jacket will fill that void. Nothing will make you stand out from the crowd of overcoats and puffers then an all-white shearling jacket.
To give the pile jacket a modern update, find a style that has leather detailing. The black leather contrasting with the white fleece gives you a clash of texture and colour further elevating your outfit.
If white is too bold for your winter aesthetic, then black is a worthy alternative, giving you a muted option.
The Aviator Jacket
One of the outerwear jackets that I have yet to call my own is the aviator jacket. What makes the aviator jacket, so iconic is the contrast shearling lining that is also found on the sleeves (sometimes) and the collar.
While you could experiment with different colours, there is only one option that will be timeless, and that is a black and white combo.
The denim jacket.
Shearling has the power to bring spring jackets into your wardrobe. The denim jacket lined with shearling is now geared to help you navigate the cold weather.
