As a fashion professional, I must be excused for certain things — like buying a heavy Winter coat in the middle of Spring for the sake of good shopping. My obsession with oversize shearling coats that scream cozy started last year, and like a patient predator, I quietly bided my time until I was able to score a major deal online. Since we're in the thick of Fall, the time for that retail magic has passed, but I still urge everyone to unapologetically search for your perfect fit. Similar to its lighter-weight cousin the leather jacket, the shearling jacket is a bonafide closet constant we're expecting to see a lot of this Winter.
Whether you're shopping for an ultra-luxe version that you'll hold onto for years — nay, decades — or would prefer something under $150 that could get tossed out after the season, we've done the heavy lifting.
