Trendy Times: Your Collection Needs More (Faux) Shearling

Back for another trend alert!  This one is easy to incorporate into a fall-themed wardrobe or layer over a work uniform top!

Faux shearling is everywhere these days. Fashionistas, bloggers, and celebrities have been spotted donning duster length fuzzy coats, warm fleece pullovers, and denim jackets lined with faux fur. The contradiction of a fuzzy fur outerwear piece paired with a structured jean, pant or blouse gives the fall feel of comfort and luxury.

Interested in testing out this new trend for yourself?  Check out my list of favorite (faux) shearling styles below:

Sherpa pullover

J America Ladies’ Epic Sherpa 1/4 Zip

The sherpa pullover first hit the promotional products industry last year. At first, the trend was primarily driven by the collegiate market. Now it’s gaining momentum in the retail and fashion-forward space as well. Sites like Shopbop and Revolve have shearling outerwear listed as a major fall fashion trend!

You can easily replicate this trend with styles like the J America Epic Sherpa ¼ zip– which comes in 7 colors! End-users can pair it with skinny jeans and ankle boots for a tailgate party or a chilly night out on the town!

Sherpa Vest

Sherpa Beanie

Not interested in a full outerwear purchase? You can stay on-trend by offering an adorable beanie. This gives a pop of a pom pom, while giving your customers the option to keep their heads warm! We offer a couple shearling beanies, but my favorite is the Leeman™ Knit Beanie with the Faux Fur Pom Pom!! It comes in four amazing neutral colors with the fun fur accent!
