Nothing feels quite as fabulous in the colder months as wrapping up in a luxe fur jacket – faux may we add. Not long ago, faux fur felt a little more like our grandmas’ old carpet than the kinda’ fluffy, soft fur that’ll make you want to take a nap mid-morning commute.
Don’t ask us what’s changed, but let’s just say the fashion gods heard our prayers and delivered a new type of faux fur that feels oh so real, and in a range of shapes, styles and colourways.
Not only were none of our furry friends harmed in the making of these lust-worthy outerwear pieces, but your bank balance won’t take a beating either.
Here are our favourite faux fur winter warmers that’ll make you put the real thing down.
The Shawl Collar Style
This style is one of the easiest ways to go faux. An ultimate fashion statement-making style for Autumn/ Winter, we’re a little in love with the Josefine Jacket by Elka Collective in a rich navy hue. Made from a lusciously thick faux fur and featuring a fully lined body, the style sits at a flattering hip length. This shawl style collar adds a classic vibe to any look, and if you’re after a little more glam, go for a calf length coat for full Audrey Hepburn vibes.
The Oversized Teddy bear Coat
The coat that means absolute business. This oversized, overly fluffy and pretty damn extra style first made its debut on the catwalk from luxury fashion house Max Mara, and the rest as they say, was history. The fur-effect in a thick wool fabric makes for a woolly winter warmer that the likes of Kim Kardashian are often seen wearing. Wear it with heels and leather pants for dinner or sneakers and a hoodie for weekend brunch dates – basically, you’re not taking it off this Winter.
The Shaggy Silhouette
Welcome to the cool club, kids. The ultimate faux fur style comes in the form of the shaggy, hip length style from Unreal Fur. Offering an unreal way to wear… unreal fur, we fall more in love with their cruelty free styles, season after season. The Unreal Dream Jacket features a round neck and a simple hook and eye fastening, with full length sleeves. Team with straight leg jeans and heeled boots for fashion a la Kate Moss.
So, there you have it, our top three faux fur winter warmers that we guarantee you’re going to live in over the next few months. Heading out and need a glam quote to match your look? Check out the range of styles available to hire now, at Style Theory.
