HOW TO STYLE SHEARLING/SHERPA THIS WINTER

Since the Acne "Velocity" jacket graced the runway, shearling, faux shearling and sherpa have become staple items in Winter wardrobes the world over.

 

Having searched high and low online, in vintage stores and the usual high end suspects, the cream style Sherpa coat which currently only existed in my mind, was no where to be found.

 

 

"I wanted knee length, I wanted cream, and I wanted black buttons."

 

 

I wanted knee length, I wanted cream, and I wanted black buttons. I didn't think that was too much to ask, and neither did Abercrombie.

 

It's both snuggly, technical term, and exactly what I wanted. The black buttons compliment the black leather details of my trousers, bag and boots whilst the Sherpa provides texture and warmth for the days that I need to stride, like a gazelle, across a cold and wintery London.

 

To finish the outfit off, I keep things simple with a cream ribbed roll neck from Abercrombie and a classic patterned Burberry scarf.

SHOP SHEARLING

The collection of faux shearling available from Abercombie at the moment it one of my favourite. Rather than recreating classic high end styles they have introduced a different spin to the usual Aviator style. From vintage inspired Oak shades to faux Mongolian fur gilets, it might be difficult to choose just one but a high quality, on tend and functional Shearling/Sherpa coat is within reach.


 

 

 


NEUTRAL KNITS

If its one thing Abercrombie does well, it is knitwear, Cable knit classics and Chloe inspired cardigans adorn the page upon page of cashmere and wool Winter wear. With the below being some of my essentials.

BIKER ACCESSORIES

Faux leather biker trousers, some killer heels and a statement "It" Bag finish of any Winter look with any Winter coat perfectly, this really is my fail safe Go-To Combination when styling up statement coats.

    I can’t help but giggle a little bit thinking about to your vlog when you were trying to perfect that ‘walking’ pose!!

    I have to say, I think you managed to pull it off very well though! 😉 And they are so hard to perfect aren’t they!? I need to know all the top bloggers secrets…

    Love the coat Lydia, you look beautiful.

    Can i ask what size you got? i want it oversized and im a 10-12 but im thinking the medium might come up small.

    Thank you x

    • Anne 3rd January 2017 / 12:02 pm

      I’m interested to know if you got the coat Pia and if so what size you went for. I’m a standard UK size 6, but like am a little unsure of the sizing. I want it cosy, but not huge. I would be interested to hear your feedback. TIA

    • Anne 3rd January 2017 / 12:24 pm

      Hi Pia. I would be interested to know if you managed to get a coat and if so what size you went for? I’m a UK size 6 and wondering whether a XS or S would be better. Like you, I want it to be slightly oversized, but not look like I’m wearing someone else’s coat. I would be interested on your feedback. Thanks

    Sherpa/shearling has not been my favorite trend… It always appears so 70s hippie-esque to me. BUT the way you have styled it makes me rethink my opinion of this trend! The Burberry scarf and sleek outfit really make it work and look chic! Girl, you could sell me anything! I’m also giggling because of your vlog where you were lunging around London to get these shots! Hey, you do what you gotta do! Keep lunging… The shots look fab!

    I watched the vlog when you took those pictures, and I remember a picture (alike the last one you posted on this blog) that you looked and you said like a gazelle (hope I am writing it correctly) and I really thought you would post that one. You really looked like a Victoria Secret model.

    Hi Lydia!

    Your posts are so inspiring. I especially love the fact that you cherish every item in your wardrobe and get great use out of them. You’ve inspired me to invest in quality pieces as opposed to buying pieces in bulk that don’t last long. Keep up the good content!

    My dear Lydia,

    I would love to kindly thank you for being such a great company with your vlogmas.
    I’ve been through difficult times this month but each morning I would watch your videos while having my first tea and get instantly inspired.
    Have a great day!
    Cheers,

    I love this faux shearling coat. I really want one for this winter!

  24. Henry 27th December 2016 / 5:37 am

    I love how you make everything look so effortless. The soft and fluffiness from the creamy shearling coat draped over the dark leather details creates a perfect winter look. Definitely a sugar and spice kind-of- moment. I absolutely love it. With love, Hen Hen<3
