8 shearling coats to shop this season - the latest It Girl outerwear to invest in

Shearling coats never go out of style, but they've never been more popular with the street style set than since Totême released its now-cult leather-trimmed shearling jacket last year. 

It's no surprise that we all want to reach for a shearling jacket as soon as the temperature lowers. It's like a warm hug in a coat, not to mention a timeless piece to elevate all of your ensembles. 

Real shearling is notoriously pricey, but there are several imitation types available on the high street that look and feel just as wonderful - and are, of course, more ethical.

We've seen a lot of styling ideas for Totême's shearling jacket on Instagram thanks to its viral success. It looks great with leather pants and a blazer.

Like Francesca Saffari and Jessica Skye, wear a Breton top or knitted jumper with a cross-body bag. Or wear it as a tonal outfit like India - there's something very autumnal about an all-cream outfit. 

If you wanted to dress it up, a longline piece would look great with a midi dress and leather boots. 

It's such a premium but easy-to-wear jacket that it can be paired with the most basic outfits, such as jeans and a tee, to allow the coat do the talking - and it will definitely make an impact. 

If you want something less expensive than Totême's designer piece, we've identified similar styles on the high street to get you through the autumn/winter season.
