Style on Trial: Pink sheepskin outerwear from Topshop

Pink_sheepskin

We’ve already talked about the faux fur which has already started to appear in stores ahead of the winter season, but it’s starting to look like sheepskin is going to be another big look in outerwear. Topshop aren’t the only label stocking Mongolian-style gilets and jackets at the moment, but so far they are the only one to be stocking pink sheepskin (as far as we know), and we’re wondering what you all think of this?

The gilet shown above is currently available at Topshop.com for £85, while the jacket is £150, and for some reason when we look at them, we think of Paris Hilton, Eddie from Absolutely Fabulous, and Playboy bunnies. We think it’s the sheer pinkness of the things, although we’re not sure we’d like them any better if they were the colour of an actual sheep, come to think of it.

Would you, though? These pieces of pink outerwear stand accused of Crimes Against Fashion, jurors. Will you find them guilty or innocent?

    I can’t think of even one woman that could wear these and make them look attractive. They’re just scary!

    I don’t think even Kate Moss, who does in fact wear her own brand, would sport these.

    I’d love it in a creamy off-white. I’d have to feel super fabulous that day, though.

    Awesome, if you really strive to look like a very feminine yeti.

    Eurgh. They look like the kind of bathroom mats that people put around the base of their toilets.

    I think this should have been paired with the gold rubber brogues for a ‘wear or die’

    It’s OK, if I had a private jet I would wear it, not being afraid that some dog would attack me.

    What is up with Topshop these days, anyway. I remember going there with my allowance for a new outfit every month when I was a teenager. Now they want nearly 100 quid for a really ugly gilet? Gaahh!

    Why is it ok to wear sheepskin but not ok to wear other furs?

    I think I’d actually quite like it if it were a little less….massive.
