Here at R29, we may have a little bit of a coat problem. We just can't stop collecting toppers in every color, fabric, and cut — trenches, parkas, biker jackets — we've got them all. And, we're anything but done. Our most recent obsession? This luxurious '70s-inspired shearling jacket from Veronica Beard. The so-chic design duo has hit it out of the park with this gem, the perfect combo of buttoned-up, laid-back, and just plain fun.
The best part? Even though this lust-worthy piece is part of the brand's yet-to-launch fall '13 collection, we've hooked you up with a preorder option. Buyer beware, this once-in-a-lifetime jacket is not for the fashion faint of heart — but, we're calling this the ultimate investment piece. After all, a timeless look like this isn't going anywhere. Now, what are you waiting for? We know that tax return has been burning a hole in your pocket.
Veronica Beard Umber Suede Shearling Jacket, $2,995, available at Veronica Beard.
