7 Sheepskin chic

Year after year, Whistles sells out of its fabulous sheepskin gilets. This season’s iterations have a funnel neck and come in short or thigh-skimming lengths, as well as heaps of colourways: electric blue, royal blue, navy, pink, green, leopard print, black and grey, and all look amazing with autumn-winter’s leather skirt obsession.
