The discovery happened on instagram. I noticed a girl’s bathroom selfie (pre-vacation) sport the coziest coat right before her sunny side destination and my googly eyes set in. I absolutely loved it but didn’t think twice about it. I was browsing instastories, so it was quick yet fulfilling. She later posted to her followers where her coat was from, so apparently it was liked by more than a handful. That particular coat was by Acne Studios and retails for $2800. The leather and shearling coat is a true beauty (no doubt) but there are several inexpensive options that will give you the same cozy style. I’m all about a look for less – especially when the asking price is way out of my price range, so I gathered a few similar looks in various colors. Check out the slide show below.
So why a shearling coat you ask? It’s like a classic coat with all the bells. An inner lining of soft texture, the look of a moto jacket, and pure warmth for all winter. You can pair this coat with jeans and any shirt, a short or long dress, or your favorite athleisure wear. I am planning to purchase the River Island version in red. It is currently on sale for $90. I love how the lady below is rocking hers with yellow tinted glasses to match her lining. How would you wear yours? (image via pinterest)
