what i'm wearing: faux fur Debenhams // jeans Primark // turtleneck United Colours of Benetton // shoes ASOS // bag* George at ASDA // watch Michael Kors
I think coats like these are perfect for a city trip – faux fur can easily take you from day to night and keep you mega warm and cosy, whilst looking on top fashion form. I spent the whole day in this faux fur coat – and boy was I glad that I had it at the end of the day when I was coming back home as it was freezing! But faux fur is just as warm as real fur, that’s why I often don’t understand why in 1st World countries we kill animals for fur. Naturally, if you live in a habitat and culture that requires you to kill and wear animals for fur then OK, but just for fashion? Nah, keep your white fox skins – I’d rather have a faux yeti on my back!
Let’s talk about balance – when you have a big coat like this, I think it looks best with something simple and slim fitting on the bottom. I opted for skinny jeans and ankle boots to keep comfortable and casual. But, if you did want to cause a bit of drama on the streets – why not try a maxi dress?
