If you vicariously live through Hollywood’s most
hated adored celebs like I do, you’ve probs seen a recent trend pop up: the faux fur coat. Faux because we actually really like animals (way more than people) and who the hell even wears real fur anymore? I mean, it’s 2017—killing animals for clothing is so 1920s. Putting the extra-ness factor of these aside, fur coats are boujee af, v warm, and like, def vintage. So cute. Not only can you obvs wear them out to the club and demand the bouncer let you in because do they know who you are?! But you can also casually wear them to the store or like, while you’re hungover on the couch because no one will question it. Suddenly, you’ve become your own Kardashian meme. To get you psyched for winter, here are 7 chic faux fur coats you’re going to want to buy rn
If you want to take it slow with the bold look, opt for a short nude style. The tan color isn’t overbearing and still goes with literally everything in your closet. This style features an open front, long sleeves, and satin lining on the interior so you stay warm all season long.
Pink fur is a girly take on the trend that’s still absolutely posh. With an oversize collar and extra wide sleeves, you’ll look bad and boujee wherever you take this. Its length falls by your waist, but Topshop is such a saint, so they have sizes that work for those that are tall or petite as well.
Kourtney’s new collab with Pretty Little Thing is straight fire and full of 70s glam that take you from streetwear to elite nightclubs. Of course it comes in bold shades like neon yellow, hot pink, our beloved black, and this sensual burgundy. The deep wine is dark enough to go with contrasting colors and perf for throwing over a scandy outfit in hopes that you can skip the bar lines. Plus, the warm shade easily transitions your look from fall to winter-ready.
If there’s one trend we all swore off as soon as we entered the 21st century, it was def cheetah. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this shit is back and it’s starting with the fur coat. Maybe I’m biased because I literally just bought a faux fur cheetah coat yesterday, but despite the kinda tacky pattern, it’s STILL fun, neutral, and fancy enough to avoid eye contact with
peasants people. This style is a bit longer than your average coat so it’s obvs extra chic and definitely going to keep you warm (and fabulous) in a tundra.
Going for black is just as obvious as the color of the sky (which, incidentally, is also black starting at 4pm). For a subtle approach, stick with what you know best in a casual everyday style. This one is a bit on the thinner side so you won’t be as obnoxious (as the rest of us), but you can pair it with jeans, leggings, or dress it up with heels.
Light gray is winter’s unofficial color so, this “dusty purple” (or, light gray as this definitely is…) is totes gorge and looks fab with most things. The shade still says you’re a high-class woman who may or may not black after one shot but, should still be getting nothing less than VIP service.
I had to include a multi-colored option because if you can’t choose one, you might as well have it all. If you’re going for various colors, find a neutral chevron pattern like this luscious brown. It’s v long, def warm, and looks scarily like real fur if you’re trying to convince people you spent your school’s tuition on it.
