Falling In Love With A Faux Fur Coat

Falling In Love With A Faux Fur Coat

It happened before Christmas. Around November if I recall. I saw Maria rocking a faux fur coat on Instagram. Then Shelley. And here I was, having a big crush on a faux fur coat. I had one once, that I donated to a charity because considering my career path (finance you all), I though I would not get many occasions to wear it. And then that career path changed. Just so you know, it would happen now, I would not see it as a good excuse. Back to that faux fur coat.

I saw it, I wanted it, I dreamed of it.

But…

I had just moved to London, paid a deposit, a month rent upfront, agency fees, train tickets, postage and transport for my boxes. In other words, I was super broke. No way I could afford that coat.

Fortunately, Christmas was coming. So when my grandparents asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I sent them the link to the faux fur. Their reaction?

What matters is that you like it.”

So clearly, they hated it. But oh well, tastes and colors.

The had it shipped to Germany where I was celebrating Christmas and here it was waiting for me by the tree. How exciting! I was finally getting my hands on this beauty. While my boyfriend’s mum loved it, his reaction was not so enthusiastic.

Again, clearly, not his cup of tea. He did not say anything but I could read it on his face. Like, he won’t walk on the same side of the road when I wear the fur. Just kidding. Or not.

Bless him.

Good for me, I had his mum on my side. That counts! Not the first time a loved ones did not understand my fashion sense. Never stopped me before! Not gonna start now, am I right?! Now I also have to be honest. I grew up in France where faux fur coats are pejoratively associated with prostitutes. Yes, that’s right. So it was quite hard for me to pull the courage needed to actually wear it. Even when I came back to the UK after the holiday. It stayed in my cupboard for two weeks before I finally decided to wear it.

Time to dare. After the leather skirt comes the faux fur coat!

And I think I did well! I wear it with a pair of jeans and trainers when I go to work. But you can also style it up. A skater dress, ankle boots and a bag will do just fine! What do you think?

Faux fur coat – New Look
Velvet dress – LOTD
Tights – Primark
Ankle boots – LOTD
Cross-body bag – TOBI
Necklace – Pimkie

What do you think of this outfit? Do you like it? Would you have styled it like that? Have you ever owned a faux fur coat? Would you consider getting one?

Thanks for reading. I hope you liked this post.

See you soon,
Love,
Corinne

    Hi, I have never owned a faux fur cut, but I love both the subtle colours and length to your coat. It’s a great coat that can either be dressed causal with jeans or a dress.

    I totally agree with you. I need a Teddy coat in my life. They’re everywhere! So nice of your grandparents to ship it to Germany for you! I love those boots too x

    It is really cute! I love the look of a fur coat, so comfy and warm. Love your dress though, I LOVED all my crushed velvets outfits in the 90’s. I’m so out of fashion that I didn’t even know it was back in.

  36. January 27, 2018 / 6:18 am

    looks so good on you. my place is a hot country so can’t wear it here.

  37. January 27, 2018 / 3:14 pm

    I really like it and I think its important to wear what you are happy and comfortable in. I really like it with the velvet dress too, it looks so warm and cosy!

  38. January 27, 2018 / 7:45 pm

    I think it’s really cute! Good for you not bending over backward to please other people’s opinions!

  39. January 27, 2018 / 9:22 pm

    I am glad you aren’t using real fur. It makes this coat 100x prettier!

  40. January 27, 2018 / 11:56 pm

    I think the faux fur coat is gorgeous on you! Forget what your boyfriend thinks! What does he know about fashion, right?! lol

  41. January 28, 2018 / 12:35 am

    Oh i wish I could rock faux fur but it just doesnt look great on me. Love how you coordinated everything to but still kept the coat the central part.

    I definitely think you did an amazing job styling this outfit. I like the combination of the dress and the coat. The boots are a killer too!

  46. January 28, 2018 / 2:49 pm

    That coat looks warm and stylish. I love the color of it too. It would go with everything in my closet and I love that it’s faux fur.

    Your faux fur coat looks cozy and you look gorgeous on it. Perfect pair with your lovely dress.

  49. January 28, 2018 / 10:41 pm

    You look lovely in that outfut! I like faux fur very much but mostly in details like a collar on my coat, rather that a full coat in fur. But I’m not exactly a trendy person, lol

    Wooow! You are really look so gorgeous on your fashionable outfit!

  51. January 29, 2018 / 3:37 am

    Love the your beautiful coat. Fashionable with out of having to pay the price and the upkeep of an authentic fur coat. Faux is definitely becoming the rage.

  52. January 29, 2018 / 9:34 am

    We miss the winter clothing here in Singapore..the coat looks amazing with those shoes <3

    The faux fur coat looks gorgeous, no wonder you wanted it from the moment you have seen it. Even if some people won’t be fans of it, I think it looks great on you. And the fact that is not real fur is even better, as it’s cruel free!

  54. January 30, 2018 / 2:31 am

    This whole outfit is super cute! I love how velvet is coming back.

  55. January 30, 2018 / 1:58 pm

    I have never owned a fur coat before. It would have been great a couple of weeks ago because it was freezing cold here in Canada.

    The fur coat looks great on you btw :).

  56. January 30, 2018 / 7:20 pm

    I’ve never owned a faux fur coat before – I love how you’ve styled it in this post – the outfit looks great on you! I’m not sure if I could pull it off, haha.
