3 WAYS TO WEAR THE FAUX-FUR COAT

By Maybelle Morgan, 19 September 2017

As the days get shorter and your trusty blazer just won’t cut it anymore, it’s time to trade in for a warmer companion. Equal parts cool and soft, it’s all about the plush faux-fur coat that's literally everyone’s type. Proof? Check out these three different ways to wear it…

Pass the mustard

So, you’ve got a slightly fancier RSVP than usual and, naturally, you’ll need that charming date on your arm. Channel model Laetitia and develop strong feelings for this better-than-your-duvet faux-fur coat in statement egg yolk. With extra-large look-at-me lapels, it’s the perfect way to dress up a relatively muted outfit: think a midi polka-dot dress (one of this season’s most-loved prints) and patent buckled shoes. A sports-tipped colour-block cross-body gives it a casual-meets-preppy twist.

The return of the 80s means we’re championing the more daring end of the coordination spectrum, so throw the rulebook out by clashing up pink and red. Go retro like ASOS Insider Barbara with this cutesy leopard-print co-ord and matching red-and-white socks. Then, for the pièce de résistance, throw on a cotton-candy midi faux-fur coat that softens the entire outfit. Buddy it up with pearlescent sneaks and a street-chic baseball cap. So good.

Vintage vibes

If a muted autumnal palette is more your style, brown faux fur is the perfect compromise and brings glam American Hustle vibes. Make like artist Al Ly and layer over a khaki boilersuit for a comfy-cool outfit base before using accessories for an eclectic touch. To finish? Vans Slip-Ons, a retro Kangol beret and teensy cat-eyes nail that weekend winning getup.
