We are slowly but surely beginning to feel the chill of winter. Don’t know what outerwear to invest in? Go for a faux-fur coat!
Here’s why. First, there are so many cool affordable designs, like the one I am wearing from H&M that costs under €100. You can also get good deals online, such as asos.com or RiverIsland.com (my favorite picks: here and here). Second, you will not be attacked or verbally abused by the anti-fur crowd (hope they can tell the difference between real and faux furs). Finally, it is trendy! High-end brands and even couture houses use faux fur to showcase their edginess. Convinced? Good – let me show you here an outfit you can wear with your faux-fur coat this winter.
The model I have here isn’t the simplest to carry – it is mid-length and voluminous, with a loud multicolor patchwork. So I match it with pared-down pieces: a turtleneck top, skinny jeans, and white sneakers. I add a little classiness with a pair of Dior earrings and by tying my hair into a low bun. Indeed, you can’t beat fur, real or faux, for glamor!
