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.

Where To Buy A Faux Fur Coat

If you're unsure what style will suit you best, a good place to start is a styling service like Stitch Fix, which will serve up the latest trends and brands, catered to your style and needs - like this amazing teddy 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.

I'm also loving everything pastel this season, a nice winter nod to the 90s. Stand Studio and Stine Goya have some lovely pale pink and blue options, perfect to brighten up a grey day.

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 Topshop and & Other Stories.

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 paisley dress for a gorgeous 70s look. And seeing as all colour blocking is a key autumn trend thanks to the likes of Molly Goddard and Balenciaga, you won't go wrong with an acid green, sunshine yellow or berry red.

If you're after something more muted, then you really can't go wrong with a black faux fur coat paired with an oversized cashmere dress and knee high boots.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
