* Western-inspired style seen on dozens of celebs this fall
* The best way to nail the trend: a great sherpa jacket
* Sherpa jackets provide warmth and style and updated to work for all occasions
The sherpa jacket is one of the season’s biggest trends this year. Not only are they big with style influencers, such as Drake and David Beckham, but western-inspired style in general is popping up on runway shows from Raf Simon’s Calvin Klein to Rag & Bone.
Once reserved for ranch hands and hipsters, the sherpa jacket is now a new essential that works for a night out and for work as well (when wore with the right pieces underneath, i.e. a shirt and tie).
Needless to say, it’s definitely an item worth adding your wardrobe this fall. Below are three of our favorites, each with a different style and price point.
1. GAP Sherpa-Lined Cord Jacket
Channel manly 70s vibes with this sherpa-lined corduroy jacket from GAP. It’s a go-to that will look better with some wear, and it’s under $100 so you won’t be worried about putting miles on it.
2. Levi’s Sherpa Trucker Jacket
Levi’s denim sherpa trucker jacket is about as classic as it gets. The timeless lines and materials will elevate anyone’s everyday outfit – whether you’re on horseback or in the back of an Uber. Also: David Beckham’s been rocking his own Levi’s sherpa jacket for multiple seasons now.
3. Helmut Lang Sherpa Collared Denim Jacket
If you can splurge on a designer sherpa jacket, we recommend this one by Helmut Lang. It retains the quintessential western vibe, but elevates it with a slightly more tailored cut, a waxy coating, and a blacked-out colorway. It’ll stand out in a crowd, but isn’t too flashy or over-the-top. Makes a nice alternative to the black leather jacket, too.
