How to style shearling











Shearling jackets are the best outwear for spring to summer transition. They are far from bulky winter jackets and coats, but are warm enough, unlike leather jackets many people wear in the beginning of spring. You can wear them with almost anything and it will look good. Long, floral dresses give shearling a boho vibe, while all black outfits make it look incredibly chic. 

Of course, a lot depends on the colour of shearling. If your jacket is brown it will look more casual and be able to tone down an outfit. Brown shearling looks great with jeans and plaid shirts. Black is pretty universal and can be worn even for some formal occasions, although I think it's best to save your shearling jackets for everyday outfits. Gray shearling is very easy to incorporate in any outfit and less edgy from black.

A lot of street style outfits from this year's Paris fashion week included shearling jackets, so it safe to tell that this trend is far away from disappearing. Shearling is a well known garment in the street style department, and a cosy alternative for its distant cousin (we can't seem too take off), the leather jacket.

Here I opted for a simple outfit with high waisted pants and denim shirt, so the focus is on the jacket. Heels are here to prevent the things from getting too simple and I'm carrying an oversized bag because small bags rarely look good with bulky jackets. 



Za prelaz iz zime ka proleću shearling jakne su najbolja opcija. To su jakne od ovčje kože, mada su poznate i kao avijatičarske jakne. Daleko su od glomaznih zimskih jakni i kaputa, ali su tople, za razliku od kožnih jakni koje većina ljudi nosi na početku proleća. Možete da ih uklopite uz bilo šta i to će skoro uvek izgledati dobro. Dugačke haljine sa cvetnim printom daju shearlingu boho notu, dok uz crne odevne kombinacije on izgleda neverovatno šik. 

Naravno, dosta zavisi i od same boje shearlinga. Ako vam je jakna braon izgledaće opuštenije i učini će da odevna kombinacija bude jednostavnija. Braon jakne se odlično slažu uz farmerke i karirane košulje. Crne su prilično univerzalne i mogu da se nose čak i za neke elegantnije prilike, mada mislim da je najbolje da shearling jakne nosite uz svakodnevne autfite. Sivi shearling se jako lako kombinuje i manje je ''edgy'' od crnog.

Dosta kombinacija ulične mode na ovogodišnjoj nedelji mode u Parizu uključivalo je shearling jakne, pa se može zaključiti da je ovaj trend i dalje u punoj snazi. One su već dugo sastavni deo ulične mode kao toplija i udobnija varijanta svog dalje rođake (koju ne skidamo), kožne jakne.

Ovde sam izabrala jednostavan autfit sa pantalonama visokog struka i teksas košuljom, da bi jakna bila u centru pažnje. Cipele sa štiklom su tu da stvari ne bi postale previše jednostavne, a nosim veliku torbu jer male tašne retko izgledaju dobro uz glomazne jakne.
