Shearling reminds me of cold, sleepy people on the subway wearing Sorel boots. And monkeys in Ikea. But it can do more than line the footwear of your morning commute. Faux or genuine, these five pieces are downright cozy, which is an important coat quality, but can also be a cool component to, say, a clutch or a heel. Everything's better when it's cuddleable, right?
Penfield Rockwool Shearling Collar Down Jacket: We all need at least one puffer coat (it's essentially non-negotiable at this point). Console yourself with a flattering one thanks to slanted pockets and subtle colorblocking.
Opening Ceremony Elise Open Toe Bootie: A shoe for days you want to attract some attention, have a pedicure, and don't mind your toes being a little chilly.
Clare Vivier Foldover Clutch: I know what you're thinking—that the shearling here will make this clutch way less practical. Actually, this is a conversation-starter. People will come up to you, curious, and ask why it's furry. Is it inside out? Soon, you'll have new friends.
See By Chloé Faux Shearling Coat: Is there anything more progressive than a motorcycle jacket, covered in nubby, adorable fluff? Consider it a a social statement (hey, it's also faux) in addition to being a really cute coat.
