Blame it on the ‘70s revival but the humble sheep-skin coat has taken the coat game by storm, stealing our heart in the process. Gracing the backs of some of our favourite outer-wear loving celebs, the shearling jacket is not just a statement piece; you’ll find it’s surprisingly versatile, able to be worn from day-to-night, and styled from high to low.

We show you how to work the shearling jacket every day of the week.

Monday | Coffee with your Mum at The Incinerator | Sydney

Proving that shearling’s not just for hippies, make like Palermo and style your jacket with preppy brights and rich-girl hair for an up-town coffee date with mother dearest at The Incinerator.
