It's the ring of the fashion fighting bell, as leather gets taken on in the ring by this season's hottest new trimming, shearling. While leather packs a punch in the fashionability department, it's all about shearling's snuggly feel and on-trend look that will give it extra points when it comes to full time in this fashion fight.
Don't get Sleuth wrong, leather will always have a place in our hearts (and our wardrobes!) but this season is all about getting your s-game on and trimming your wardrobe from top to toe in this versatile and practical (not exactly Shopistas' favourite word, but it helps when your knees are shaking in their thigh-high boots!) trim.
Magazine guru and Mamamia blog author (and all-round cool chick) Mia Freedman even thinks so, having been questioned by Karl (Sleuth crush alert!) on the Today show about her on-trend vest. As she pointed out, it's fashionable AND warm. Love!
So look below at the mix of sassy real & faux shearling, and get yourself rugged up for some serious winter fun.
Happy Shopping! x
