Perhaps it's because we are in the middle of the most frigid winter in recent memory, but we can't help but be drawn to all of the fuzzy, shearling pieces that are taking over the runways this season. The soft material has popped up seemingly everywhere, making up vests at Rag & Bone and 3.1 Phillip Lim, cozy jackets at Tommy Hilfiger and Altuzarra, as well as dramatic (yet still snuggly) collars at the high-tech Alexander Wang show. It's made an appearance in accessories as well: Shearling-lined shoes were paired with jackets of the same material at Coach, and J.Crew incorporated it into clutches and scarves. Now, if only we could shop these cold-weather essentials in time for the brewing winter storm...
