THE NEW WAY TO WEAR THE CLASSIC FAUX FUR COAT

When it comes to winter coats, there is no style more classic than the faux fur jacket.

Carrie Bradshaw championed the look from the steps of her Manhattan brownstone in the Sex in the City days and, way before then, our grandmothers reached for the vintage fur coat for their own evenings on the town. For those of us who are not fortunate enough to be in possession of fashion’s chicest hand-me-down, the faux fur is the must-shop style of the season. However, while it may be a wardrobe classic, the new way to wear the faux fur is more street style star than night at the opera.

The new fur coat isn’t only for ladies who lunch. Instead it is for those who refuse to let average outerwear ruin an otherwise ideal outfit. The modern faux fur way calls for distressed denim and leather leggings, worn with beanie hats and cross-body bags.

What’s more, there isn’t a festive fabric that faux fur doesn’t work with, so make like Ms Bradshaw and wear your boxy faux fur coat over your sequin dress or leather mini come New Year’s Eve. After all, we Northerner’s mightn’t be known for our love of a coat on a night on the town, but who really wants to see 2017 in with the flu?

Daywear doesn’t have to be any less glam either, especially when you wear your faux fur with a black turtleneck, skinnies, a black beanie hat and some oversized sunnies to ward off the winter glare.

The key to styling your faux fur more like Ms Moss than the high-society set is to keep the rest of your luck casual. Twist hair into a nonchalant top-knot or let it hang loose and wavy around your shoulders; this isn’t a time for sleek, straightened locks or chic chignons, both of which are far too prissy for this season’s effortless off-duty look.
