From high -flying aviators to dodgy dealers at 1970s market stalls, the shearling coat has seen many fan clubs over the years, mostly male. But this season sees female fans embrace it in a big way, with an array of colours and varying textures. This style is a sure fire hit for the coldest season of the year. Editor Cathy Martin looks at some of the most popular….
The colour of this fleecy number has got me all sheepish. And it’s available in TALL and PETITE also
This one is channeling GOOSE in 1980s movie Top Gun and we love it for that.
I’m not overly sold on the colour and exterior pockets of this one, but the team here love it, so, it stays.
Simple, chic and not too bulky (if you don’t like the extra inches that a big shearling coat brings). Plus, the length is advantageous for cold kidney types, like me!
I’m not one for zip fastenings on wool or cotton coats, but this is so cosy and would be fab on a park walkabout. Four legged friend optional.

I have a feeling this would drown me. But do I care? Not in the slightest!
This is definitely reminding me of old men in background of the Only Fools and Horses re-runs. But in a cool way.
Aaah black, the fashionista’s favourite. This beauty is super soft to touch and dreamy to wear.
A bit on the light side for me – both in colour and in silhouette. But pretty for just a taste of shearling.
Much prefer this option from New Look – better shape, much more interesting take on the original flying jacket silhouettes.
The colour is a wee bit ‘meh’ for me, but I know plenty of peeps who adore these greeny-browns. I do love the fluffier fleece on the collar though.
Well hello there super luxe! This coat is unpriced, which probably means I cannot (and will not) ever afford it. But, wow!
This is beautiful and luxurious – the perfect coat for a country weekend with plenty of walks and stop offs and gourmet pubs.
Now this baby is cute! I would most definkitely save my pennies and purchase this princess
Super rich colour and texture – exactly how this kind of coat should look and feel. Boom!
Almost velvety in texture – and super feminine in colour. We love!
This baby has definitely got our engines running.
Not super keen on the hooded part of this jacket, but it looks super cosy none the less!
Love this. But what is with the REALLY long arms?
Is it me or is this coat made for Mr Tickle?
Totally boho and 1970s. This is one of my faves…
If you’re gonna wear white, you gotta do it right. And this kinda does it.
Thick and full of style – I love this jacket!
VB doesn’t disappoint with this cropped number. Is it weird that I would like to see her and David in matching versions?
I normally love Belstaff, but my school report comment back to this one is a bit ‘could’ve done better’. Sorry! Nice trims though.
This is a beauty, but its colour has been so widely copied on the high street that I am finding it hard to appreciate the price
Yes, yes, yes, yes! I’m having a total When Harry Met Sally moment here. And it’s not fake!
I think this would look super cool on one of those understated French gals.
Cold Brit or Irish lass? Not so much.
Is this a bit too Rodeo? For me, I’m sorry, but it is.
Love this colour and the collar too.
Coveting one right now
This Kenzo coat is amazing – and perfect to clash with red for the ultimate AW17 look
DIESEL BLACK GOLD
Totally beaut coat – just like something out of In the Name of the Father movie.
This baby is right up there with the Coach number. One of my faves this season, but unfortunately sold out about 20 mins after release.
Love the red collar and cuff – definitely a hit this season.
This beauty from Whistles is something you could wear to herd sheep and get lost in the herd. We’re thinking, Donegal, New Year’s Eve, and a pint of Guinness. Slainte!
