The line of garments referred to as Toscana jackets are jackets made using all natural sheepskin. These items are created in styles for women and are usually designed to be more fashionable than some other coats and jackets made using leather. What usually sets these jackets apart from other jackets made of leather is the addition of real fur. The fur is used to enhance the design and also to provide comfort and warmth. The stylish designs of these jackets can also include gather areas in the back of the waist to create more form for the piece.
Women will find these warm jackets available in several colours. One jacket created in black sheepskin is enhanced with the addition of black fur around the collar and cuffs. The addition of genuine fur trim changes the appearance of the jacket from ordinary to trendy. It is the perfect length to wear with a pair of casual jeans leggings and boots or with a short skirt. This particular style has a snap front design and is made from real Italian Toscana sheepskin.
Other trendy styles often made using this luxurious leather include the wrap front jackets and coats. The wrap is designed so when the two halves meet in the front they create a cascade of ruffles. This cascade creates a visual of motion, which makes the garment appear more delicate and feminine. The ability for women to choose jackets created with the same durable material as men’s jackets, allows them to wear garments well suited to the cold temperatures without having to sacrifice their personal style. To enhance the more feminine style of the Toscana jackets, most designers will use the softer suede material rather than the harsher smooth grain.
The jackets available for women will come in different weights designed to provide different amounts of warmth. This allows women to choose styles they can wear for spring or fall as well as jackets for winter use. The heavier jackets will usually have a thicker lining, which can be made using a dense pile or fur. Many women enjoy spending time outside as much as men and with the new styles of sheepskin jackets, they can enjoy their time outdoors while keeping warm. The more feminine designs allow women to keep warm using the same durable leather hides used to create men’s jackets, without the big bulky look of the masculine styles.
