Not since the 1960’s and 1970’s has sheepskin gilets and faux fur gilets been a fashion accessory across the mainstream public. We can all thank GOT Fashion for the faux fur jackets renaissance. What’s GOT fashion? Come on, HBO, TV, 2014, three seasons? Autumn, WinterFell? Weather a bit Stark? Game Of Thrones Fashion!! Where have you been?
Much like Steampunk clothing, GOT clothing has gone mainstream. Not that it ever really went away, just perhaps the stitching got better over 1500 years and materials more manageable. After all, we have been wearing animal fur for half a million years, give or take a million. Only today, GOT fashion comes in the form of a sheepskin and faux fur gilets jackets ensemble.
We don’t have to be so blood thirsty with our clothing any more. We can develop materials without having to resort to real furs from rabbits, foxes and so on. While Sheepskin gilets are pretty much acceptable, many people opt for faux fur gilets and jackets over real fur. Faux being a fancy name for fake.
We have chosen five of our favourite faux fur gilets jackets and sheepskin gilets from the new John Lewis Wild Side Fashion Magazine. They detail a specific trend to warmth and touchy feel clothing that brings people together in the midst of a huddle in a cave. Game Of Thrones Fashion has truly won people over. The great idea behind the GOT fashion clothing is that it is functional and practical, as well as ensuring warmth is retained and the chills kept at bay.
