Coat season is officially here, and if a puffer jacket is too sporty or this season’s wool wrap coat is too minimalistic, there’s sure to be a shearling coat to suit your cold-weather style needs. Shearling coats have been a winter wardrobe staple since, well, forever, and these cozy coats are as cool as they come. They’re sturdy and durable, which makes them as practical as winter parkas, while their timeless look suits all styles and ensures they will hold their own no matter what the current seasonal trends may be. Plus, their reputation for timeless style makes them the perfect investment piece for fall and beyond—an important fact to consider at a time when shopping for items that you can love and own for years, and perhaps even pass down one day. Better yet, investing in a shearling coat doesn’t have to cost a month’s rent—here, 20 of the best shearling coats and jackets– faux, sherpa, and teddy included!— to buy now and bundle up in forever, all ringing in $500 or less. Plus, a handful of extra styles that are worth the splurge.
Timeless silhouettes like the aviator or double-breasted jacket are the perfect starters for a shearling coat investment. Bundle up in a classic brown or black version this winter and for many more to come: These are styles that will only look better with time.
For a lighter jacket that still brings the heat, shearling-lined or trimmed truckers are the perfect balance of casual and comfortable and warm enough for the winter months.
For the ultimate warmth, snuggle up in a teddy coat this season. Their elongated hem will keep your legs warm, too, while their oversize fit makes layering sweaters underneath easier and more comfortable than ever. These cozy coats are the heavyweight champs of shearling outerwear.
