Shearling Coats Are Spring’s Breakout Celebrity Trend

  • 4836

When spring rolls around, it’s always tempting to shove all of your outerwear to the back of your closet—but don’t act too fast! This season is always perplexing weather-wise (one day it’s hot, and the next it’s nippy again), so you need to keep a few coats in your daily outfit rotation. And there just so happens to be a breakout-style this season that’s proving to be a major celebrity hit.

Over the past few weeks, stars such as Rihanna, Irina Shayk, and Hailey Bieber have all hit the streets in shearling coats—and when Bad Gal Riri wears it, you know it’s a must-have. They’ve all gravitated towards cropped silhouettes—think an aviator or bomber jacket style—that is lightweight enough to be worn for the spring. Yet, the shearling still keeps you warm on those colder days (is there a cozier material?). Shearling jackets have been a big hit on the runways, too: Chanel, Boss, Chloé, and more have all shown their interpretations of them, the jackets either lined or fully covered in with shearling.

If you’re wondering how to wear this statement coat, fear not: Celebrities have styled it in various ways, from casual to dressy. Rihanna has worn her R13 sherpa jacket in many different looks, including one with sweatpants and heels for daytime or with a mini skirt for evening. Bieber, meanwhile, wore the same one with a cropped tank, mini skirt, and heels. And model Irina Shayk paired her luxurious Yulia Wave shearling coat with jeans and a Britney Spears graphic tee. It’s a surprisingly versatile piece that adds an instant cool factor to your look. Call it spring’s breakout hero piece!
