Fall has officially arrived now and I am slowly starting to build my winter wardrobe. Acne Studios‘ “Velocite” shearling jacket has been an obsession of mine for several years. I just love the luxe-looking, plush shearling lining, the straps and buckles, the oversized moto look. It’s the perfect winter jacket and just look how fab and cozy all the style bloggers look in their Acne Velocite below. The only thing holding me back to get my own Acne Velocite? The price tag, of course. $2.800 is a pretty steep price.
