Let’s be honest, other than Pancake Day and reduced chocolates after Valentine’s; February doesn’t have much going for it – it’s still cold and wet with the seemingly constant threat of snow. As much as we love A/W fashion and honing our layering skills, sometimes you just want to chuck on your cosiest jumper and the closest pair of jeans. There’s nothing wrong with jeans and a jumper: it’s a classic combo, but to breathe new life into the look consider pairing with a fluffy faux fur coat (emphasis on the faux).
Do like Anna and inject a splash of colour into your faux fur with this statement jacket! The chevron print adds a quirky twist, while the classic shades of cream and navy create the ideal base for the yellow to pop.
If you’re not ready to commit to full-on-faux-fur, embrace the trend via a snug gilet a lá Fashion By A Fro. Some of our fave streetstyle looks from NYFW and LFW were thanks to clever layering so put your skills to the test by popping a gilet over/under roll necks, jackets and knits.
Furry jackets are a must-have for cool girls like Kate Moss, the Olsen twins and Sienna Miller who often pair the cover-up with ripped denim and biker boots. For a girlier take, opt for a dusky pink hue and some classic OTK boots like ALLINSTYLE.
Katie is Looker’s ruling Queen of faux fur coats! She owns them in a rainbow of colours – from black to Barbie pink to this blood orange number. Keep your look on trend with a slogan tee, Gucci dupe bag and baker boy hat.
Most faux fur cover-ups come in a lengthier style so go for a cropped version like Sharon to freshen up your look. The soft pink hue is the perfect colour to liven up your outfits – whether you pair it with denim for daytime or a slinky dress after dark.
Okay, so it’s not a coat but Chloë Ella’s lime green scarf caters to our obsession with Shrimps (the cult faux fur brand) so we had to include it! It instantly turns her minimal outfit into a stand-out look.
Add depth to your outfit by mixing & matching stripes and leopard print with different textures like faux fur, leather and fishnets. Don’t feel obligated to finish it off with a black jacket just because you’re rockin’ prints – Siana’s deep red coat polishes off her outfit to perfection.
