Wearing fake fur is no longer a faux pas
The warmest and best way to stay cosy during the colder months
This winter staple is the perfect addition for your wardrobe. Don’t just take my word for it, the Queen announced back in November last year that she is ready to put aside her love for fur, and as we all move on with the times, thankfully, so have the quality of faux fur coats. Let me point you in the direction of Shrimps, no not the crustacean, but a brand established by Hannah Weiland that has built its reputation from the quality and style of its faux fur coats. For her AW20 collection we saw a great deal of reference towards Her Majesty, the Queen, in the colour palettes, floral prints, headscarfs, but more importantly in the chic faux fur coats. With a growing number of designers like Calvin Klein, Michael Kors and Gucci saying no to fur, faux fur is quickly climbing the ladder to becoming ‘it’ coat.
It had always been quite hard to find an authentically soft and visibly pleasing version that could succeed its predecessor. Gone are the days of faux fur being synonymous with feeling wiry and boxy, now you’ll find an abundance of soft and luxuriously styles. A belted version will elevate an outfit with an effortless ease, while a Cruella Deville inspired animal print will bring some drama to your look. You might be after a short bomber jacket for an added edge, or a spiced up, bright version of the humble coat. There really is a faux fur piece for everyone.
A staple for many, but if you haven’t purchased one your in luck as a lot of these gooey coats are on sale. Shop my edit of the best faux fur coats that you can wear guilt free.
