Shearling Jackets

In other words, it's the on-trend outerwear choice that will keep you toasty and terribly chic through winter's more brutal months. Whether you pick a piece that's groomed or shaggy, darkly hued or classic white, the shearling jacket is an of-the-moment statement piece and the perfect subject for today's edition of Go Buy Now!As we briefly discussed in Looking Forward To: Fall Fashion, this essential item was all over the F/W 10 runways.
