How to Style Shearling Shoes This Fall

Leaves aren’t the only things that change in the Fall. As summer winds down and we start to bring out the apple cider and pumpkin decor, our wardrobes start to change too. Fall is a time to bring out our cozy closet staples, which to us means one thing: Shearling.

One of the most fashionable ways to wear shearling is –you guessed it – in your shoes! And the best part is there are so many ways to incorporate shearling shoes into your Fall wardrobe. We’re going to show you how to wear your favorite shearling-lined shoes with classic Fall trends.

What is shearling?

First, let's go over some basics. You may be asking yourself, what is shearling lining? Shearling is wool from a sheep or lamb that is used to line shoes, purses, clothing and more. One side of shearling is usually made of smooth suede or leather, while the other side has soft and dense wool. Many times, shearling shoes and accessories will have hardware accents, which are both eye-catching and functional.

How to Style Shearling Shoes

Go casual

One of the most classic pairings are shearling-lined shoes and jeans. The contrast of ultra-soft shearling with the smooth and woven construction of denim is striking and fashionable. One classic Fall outfit could be a pair of shearling-lined slides with high-waisted jeans and a flannel top tucked in loosely at the waist. Finish off the look with a messy bun and a hot tea at the ready!

You can also pick up a pair of brown shearling-lined clogs and pair them with knit leggings and an oversized sweater for an effortless and versatile Fall look you can wear while you run errands. No casual look would be complete without cozy socks! Introduce your feet to a new level of comfort by slipping into your favorite knit socks and wearing a pair of shearling boots.

Dress it up

Shearling shoes are the perfect touch to a dressy outfit. You can transition your favorite pair of shearling shoes from day to night with just a few simple items.

Slip into your favorite Fall dress and shearling-lined clogs for a cute look you can wear out to dinner with friends. It’s best to choose warm tones to match your clogs, like orange and brown hues. If your shearling is dyed, you may want to consider adding matching accessories. For example, if your shoes have brown or black shearling, consider adding a similar color of belt over your dress or wear a matching purse.

For cooler days when you want some layers, wear your dress with sheer leggings and opt for a closed shoe, such a shearling boot. Top off the look with a fedora and a few bracelets or layered necklaces.
