With January coming to a close and spring just barely within sight, some of our favorite celebrities are braving the winter chill and stepping out in warm and cozy sheepskin outerwear, like stylish shearling jackets and hats. Take Keira Knightley for example. The newly-pregnant actress stepped out in London with her musician husband a couple of weeks ago, wrapping her adorable baby bump in a chic tan sheepskin coat with front pockets and an oversized shawl collar, just like our Ladies Cattleman Sheepskin Coat. The British beauty paired her shearling jacket with skinny jeans, combat boots, black rimmed glasses, and her hair in natural waves, for an effortlessly dressed-down yet chic look.
Keira Knightley isn’t the only one turning to sheepskin to combat the cold winter weather. Just last week, Skinnygirl entrepreneur and The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel was a vision of comfort and warmth while taking her daughter to school in New York, donning a black sheepskin-lined coat with a huge shawl collar and a Russian-style fur hat similar to our Shearling Diplomat Hat for women. We also have at The Sheepherder a warm and stylish Sheepskin Aviator Hat for women, a Ladies Shearling Earband perfect for those good hair days, and a line of beautiful and incredibly soft Alpaca hats, scarves and mittens for women.
Mad Men star January Jones apparently also turns to sheepskin to keep herself and her family warm when the winter weather strikes. The actress and her three-year-old son Xander were spotted at Los Angeles International Airport earlier this month, and both were sporting a pair of warm and cozy genuine sheepskin boots. While January donned a pair of tan shearling boots to go with her dark blue skinny jeans and colorful fur-lined cardigan, Xander wore a pair of cute grey sheepskin boots with his black speckled pants and black sweater with grey stars.
Sheepskin isn’t just for women and kids though. Last month, One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles wrapped up against the chilly New York weather with a camel-colored sheepskin coat, black skinny jeans, a Calvin Klein sweater and tan boots. The singer was in New York with the rest of his bandmates ahead of their Saturday Night Live appearance, and while Harry Styles is known for his sometimes questionable sense of style, his decision to stave off the winter chill in an attractive shearling jacket demonstrates his good taste in winter wear. For a look like Harry Styles, check out our Men’s Classic Sheepskin Coat, a traditional shearling jacket with oversized pockets and a leather-trimmed collar and cuffs.
