The Shearling and Fur Bags You Need For Winter
As winter sets in, everything in our life goes through a transition: we swap out our iced coffees for hot lattes, we upgrade to a thicker moisturizer to soothe dry winter skin, and we trade in cotton dresses for wool coats. But there’s one transition you probably haven’t made yet—and that’s upgrading your handbag. That’s right: your shoes aren’t the only accessory that necessitates a cold-weather closet switch-up (although it is the perfect time of year for a fur-lined Gucci Princetown loafer). Not to mention, shopping resale is the most sustainable way to shop a cozy shearling or fur. A season-appropriate tote adds a cozy element to any outfit, and the two biggest bag trends of the season —shearling and fur—prove it.
Shearling is the “cuter” of the two plush purse trends—the style is a little more low-key, a little more daytime. In other words, a shearling bag is something you can reach for while running errands or meeting friends for brunch.
No matter how it’s worn—as a floor-sweeping coat, a chic little hat, or a luxurious handbag—fur always makes a statement. For a fun twist, opt for a soft bag that’s dyed in a bright color, like pink or red.
