3 WAYS TO WEAR THE FAUX-FUR COAT

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.
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.
