According to Fashion Beans the sheep skin jacket is back in fashion this Autumn/Winter 2015, they have given the style the new name of, ‘Shearling Effect’, which suggests that they are attempting to cast off the old Del Boy Image. Images of the new sheep skin jacket style shows jackets and coats that are more sedate and classy than the jackets in the past, which tended to be more rugged and tougher looking. However if you do have an old sheepskin jacket lurking in the wardrobe – you will be able to get it out this year in vintage style.
The word on the street is to buy a good quality one as opposed to one that costs little and quite frankly looks cheap. A sheepskin jacket is a fantastic way to keep warm in the winter as its internal fleece is cosy while the tough leather on the outside will keep out the chill of winter. Apparently winter is set to be really cold this year with some frost and snow – a good sheep skin jacket is a great investment.
Admittedly the new A/W15 style is a definite improvement on Del Boy’s dodgy dealing jacket and you probably can’t buy the style any more but he is a true style icon and however you dress a sheep skin jacket or give it a fancy name you are still dressing a little bit like a cheeky chappy.
