The Sheep Skin Jacket Is Back A/W15

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.

Keep Warm This Spring With A Polo Neck Jumper

Spring is a funny time of the year as it is  neither freezing cold or boiling hot but we would still like to cast off the heavy overcoat and feel much freer.  Wearing your warm clothing underneath your other clothes is a fantastic way to keep warm and look stylish at the same time.  This is achieved by wearing a thin polo neck jumper made preferably of cashmere or any other warm material underneath your shirt, jacket or gilet.  The beauty about a polo neck is that it can also be worn alone with jeans or formal trousers.

The polo neck or turtle neck top became famous  in the sixties when the Beatles posed as a group for a promotional photograph wearing polo neck jumpers.  More recently one Direction have reignited the sex appeal of this staple piece of clothing by wearing polo neck tops under jackets.  Probably one of the most famous wearer of polo neck tops is Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple Inc, he chose to wear polo necks every time he announced the new developments in his iPhone technology. Polo necks are no longer the clothes of science boffins.

This staple piece of clothing is actually more popular than you think it is, there is even a whole Pintrest site dedicated to polo necks.  Online stores such as, stand-Out.Net, Fashion Beans, Ebay and ASOS have all written blog posts giving advice on the best way to wear a polo neck jumper.
