The Shearling Coat is the New Darling of Women’s Coats

When we think of shearling women’s coats we think of cosy, luxe and warm. All these are true for shearling, the soft and natural material that is lightweight and supremely comfortable to wear. The lighter the shearling, such as the one shown below, the more luxurious and the best suited it will be to layer into spring. This natural sheep wool color blends ideally with camels and browns and is perfect for this season’s monochrome looks.
