The faux fur coat is back, and this season, it's looking cooler than ever. Here's how to wear fashion's hottest cover-up...
With big designers like Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and Gucci stepping away from fur, faux fur coats have never been so chic. Already a winter coat staple for some, there’s no denying the power of the fuzzy coat when you’re looking to amp up your look in a flash.
Those who haven’t yet experienced the joy of faux fur, here are just a few reasons why it’s your new season hero:
- It’s cool and has the fash-pack approval (see Poppy Delevingne in colourful Shrimps and Alexa Chung in leopard print from her own label).
- The styling options are endless.
- Because they’re not real fur, you can bag a seriously chic (and cruelty-free) style whatever your budget.
Where To Buy A Faux Fur Coat
If you were ahead of the game and bagged yourself a cool neutral style last season, you’ll be pleased to hear they are still a key player, and will easily re-charge your current wares. Should you be looking for something a little bolder, you might want to consider Shrimps and Sézane for their vibrant colour-blocking confections, whilst no one does animal print like Alexa Chung and Tibi.
As for the high street, champions of faux fur like Mango, H&M and Zara offer up a pretty new season styles that are a total bargain. If it’s a faux shearling coat you’re lusting over, look to Gap, New Look and M&S.
From super bright, look-at-me multi-coloured options and animal prints, to classic and pared back fur-trimmed numbers, there’s a faux fur coat to suit everyone.
How To Wear A Faux Fur Coat
I’m very much a fan of the more-is-more look. Wear a colour block or leopard print over a slogan tee or striped multi-coloured cashmere. And seeing as all shades of red are a key AW17 trend thanks to the likes of Valentino, Gucci and Chloé, you won’t go wrong with a berry cover-up paired with a scarlet roll-neck.
If you’re after something more muted, then you really can’t go wrong with a black faux fur coat paired with a smart floaty dress.
