Each winter, a new must-have coat style surfaces as the season's hero must-have. In 2018, it was the short puffer in every color, fabric, and print imaginable, and for 2019, it's sizing up to be the cropped sherpa bomber. This jacket is stylish and cozy, but it's also extremely versatile (meaning it'll work no matter how low the temps drop in your city). Don't believe me? Here are five Instagram babes from across the U.S. wearing the super-soft bomber from JoyLab, which (if you can believe it) is only $40.
"Fall in Texas is hit or miss, but when there's a breeze, I love to throw on my sherpa to keep me warm," says Shay Mone. This dressed-up look she put together is proof that the jacket is extremely versatile (not to mention chic). It's also the perfect reminder that a black-and-white outfit is always on trend.
Vienna Skye pairs her sherpa with equally on-trend combat boots. The result? A very "New York cool girl" look that we're really into for casual weekends. "There's nothing better than a jacket that's functional and fashionable," she says. (In other words, this one's a no-brainer.)
Raeann Langas practically lives in activewear, partially because she loves to work out and partially because her pup, Angus, requires lots of walks. She's been wearing the sherpa with leggings and sneakers on repeat. "I love that it will go with just about anything," she says of the neutral piece.
According to Nyja Richardson, burgundy counts as a neutral during fall, so her sherpa is going to get tons of use. Here, she pairs the cozy jacket with olive-green pants and chocolate-brown accessories for a color combo that's seriously cool and elevated.
Since it's definitely already cold in Boston where Kelly Schneider lives, we trust the warmth of the cozy zip-up jacket. She wears hers with matching legging-and–sports bra outfits to and from the gym, but it's also a great piece to layer under thicker coats when the temps really start to drop.
