Fact: One of the quickest ways to comfort is shearling. From shearling and sherpa socks to sherpa sweats, pullovers and sweaters…having this ultra-soft texture in your closet this season can help make you feel cozy in an instant. It’s one of those looks that oozes casual comfort and, in my opinion, is a great staple style to have in your collection.
With the start of fall and all through winter, out come the teddy coats in shades of brown like tan, camel and cognac. These are great for adding warmth to your wardrobe but there’s something about creamy winter white that gives a fresh and lighter feel this time of year—something that’s so often welcome and needed as we’re wishing for and dreaming of spring.
Like I mentioned, I love the way these cozy styles like sherpa, fleece and faux shearling add an almost instant casual appeal to any outfit. When a silky or satiny top feels a bit too dressy or a fitted knit seems too “slick,” adding this texture in a layer can have a really great casual-cool effect. It’s also just an easy layer to throw on with almost everything for day-to-day wear, especially in a creamy tone like this—it goes with everything!
I layered mine from Nordstrom (similar here) over a really great long-sleeved knit knot-front top I picked up recently from Madewell and also available here. I love the fit and feel of this one and it’s one of those staple styles you can wear every season.
Of course, I pulled out a trusted pair of high rise Levi’s 721 jeans (tts) and slipped into my M.Gemi Corsa ankle boots for all day comfort. I can totally see this cozy white sherpa style taking me into spring with white or cropped denim and sneakers or even being great beach days and summer nights with cutoff shorts.
As always, thank you so much for reading!
