The crisp fall air means only one thing: it’s time to give our outfits a seasonal refresh. To flesh out your wardrobe for the months to come, a good jacket is at the top of your wish list – and Zara’s famous sheepskin bomber jacket on TikTok is hard to beat.
With 16 million views (and counting) on the app, users praise the big favorite’s double-sided cropped coat as this year’s must-have fall jacket, due to its effortless aesthetic and lightweight feel.
Dominating both the sidewalks and social media, Zara’s aviator epitomizes the laid-back style favored by the fashion pack this fall – think Arket’s sold-out Breton striped sweater, cargo pants (the looser, the better) and Ugg’s viral mini platform boots.
Retailing for £99, Zara’s bomber-style jacket features a wide faux shearling collar and exaggerated cuffs, a flattering slightly cropped length and a wearable brown leather effect finish. After selling out last winter, the viral coat is back in all sizes for 2022.
If there’s a jacket-sized hole in your fall wardrobe, run, don’t walk, to add Zara’s double-faced jacket to your next collection. Here’s everything you need to know, plus the best similar sheepskin aviator styles to buy right now.
