The 70s are back, and with them comes the rise of the sheepskin coat. Although it has long been a favourite amongst the staple wardrobe of the stylish, the sheepskin coat has seen a recent resurgence, so there is no better time to invest in this eye-catching classic.
The return of the sheepskin coat
Sheepskin coats have long been loved by the fashion crowd, but it's this season's love affair with the seventies that has given us a ton of new designs to choose from. Longer coats are archetypal of this retro era, and they look great worn over soft flowing vintage style dresses and pencil skirts with chunky knitwear. Although they're a little trickier for the men to pull off, you can easily steer clear of the 70s dress-up look by wearing yours with tailored trousers or skinny jeans with some grungy lace up boots.
The modern sheepskin coat
Sporty shearling is the key to bringing the sheepskin coat into the modern day, and it's the ideal winter touch for any sports luxe look. Shorter styles match well with sporty outfits, think beanie hats, tailored jogging bottoms, hoodies and luxe trainers. Another way of bringing the style up to date is to pick a coloured sheepskin coat. Instead of opting for the usual brown and cream blend, look out for sumptuous shades of inky blue, slate grey and midnight black, and you'll have a unique piece that'll stand out from the crowd.
