Sherpa jackets and coats are synonymous with wintry weather. You get the comfort of a snugly throw or blanket in fashionable outerwear. It’s no wonder then that Sherpa jackets are a staple among the celebrity winter jackets we see.
So what is Sherpa fabric used in these coats and jackets? Sherpa is cloth that can be made from polyester, cotton or acrylic, made to mimic the appearance of wool. It can be used as the shell or as the lining of a jacket or coat. It’s also called “faux shearling” and is an alternative to shearling or sheepskin garments for those who choose not to wear fur. Outerwear described as a teddy jacket or teddy coat can have a similar look to Sherpa Jackets.
Flight jackets or bomber jackets are not only supremely warm because of the shearling or ‘faux shearling’ lining, but these leather or faux-leather jackets can be an edgy element in your winter wardrobe. Rev up the edgy look like Kim Kardashian or keep your style in a lower gear like Gisele Bundchen.
