Awarding an elevated twist with every outfit it layers, the shearling is an essential for the cold season, working beautifully in city settings as it does on gentle outdoor excursions during weekend getaways.
“The tints of autumn...a mighty flower garden blossoming under the spell of the enchanter, frost.”
