Actress, internet entrepreneur and newlywed Blake Lively covers the August edition of Vogue magazine, and in the cover shot, the 26-year-old manages to look casual but elegant (as always) in a red knit strapless dress and multicolored vintage sheepskin jacket. Blake also rocks sheepskin chic attire in the inside spread of the fashion magazine, where the blonde bombshell is photographed hanging out on a ranch, wearing an attractive fitted shearling vest over top a long-sleeve gray jersey dress. Blake Lively previously covered Vogue magazine in 2009 and 2010, when her Hollywood career was just taking off, but the actress has never looked as good as she does in sheepskin!
Blake Lively is certainly no stranger to sheepskin duds; she has been photographed on multiple occasions wearing cozy shearling jackets and she has also been known to don a warm pair of sheepskin boots to ward off the cold weather come winter. It seems Blake has discovered the benefits of sheepskin for summer though, and the blonde beauty’s Vogue photoshoot features two of our favorite shearling garments for women: the versatile sheepskin coat and the feminine but utilitarian sheepskin vest. Here at The Sheepherder, we have a variety of sheepskin vests and jackets for women to choose from, including a few looks similar to Blake Lively’s.
If you’re looking for a sheepskin jacket like Blake Lively’s in her August Vogue cover, check out our Ladies Highcountry Sheepskin Coat or Ladies Columbine Sheepskin Coat. Both jackets are handcrafted from genuine shearling at our shop in Alma, Colorado, and feature a trim, sophisticated cut with feminine lines, making the shearling coats the perfect choice for a day on the ranch or a night out on the town. The jackets also feature 3-inch rolled cuffs and notched collars, which are guaranteed to keep you warm on even the coldest winter night, but are also designed to wick away moisture from the body and keep you cool during the summer months.
One of the main reasons Blake Lively has become such a fashion icon in recent years is because she can pull off unexpected looks, like the sheepskin vest and long-sleeve jersey dress she sports in the inside spread of Vogue. Blake’s long belted jersey dress is perfectly paired with a two-tone sheepskin vest similar to our Ladies Wrangler Sheepskin Vest, which features an attractive notched collar, wool-out trim and antler toggles for closure. The custom women’s shearling vest is designed to be slim and form-fitting, which makes it a great addition to any outfit, whether you’re pairing it with your favorite jeans or a casual long-sleeve dress like Blake’s!
