Spoiler alert: my coat isn’t fox. It did make a cute title though right? Whether you get your fashion info from WGSN, Vogue, or social media, it’s pretty well known that fur is back baby! Not only are fur coats warm, but they also look so fierce! My mom always wore fur coats when I was little and I would giggle thinking the concept was so funny. Let me tell you though, when I put this baby on I understood the magic! There’s a sense of edgy poise that comes with a fur coat and I highly recommend everyone gives it a try. Fur coats can be styled from casual to formal but I rarely have formal events so, I’ve had fun wearing this to update a casual, everyday look.
How to style a fur coat
In case you hadn’t noticed from the photos, fur coats make a HUGE statement. This being said, it is important to wear a simple outfit underneath. Black jeans are my go-to and these ones with ripped knees helped keep the outfit young and age-appropriate. A white blouse or sweater underneath creates contrast against the darker fur making it pop while, the silk scarf adds a bit of subtle color. The handbag I chose brings out the red in the scarf and the mules bring out the blues. I was careful when picking accessories because I didn’t want anything too flashy. When picking your fur there are so many options it can be overwhelming. I am fortunate because I can borrow my mom’s however, if I were to purchase one I would go for a less-expensive faux option like this coat.
