At this time of year, we fully support anything that makes leaving our warm and cosy homes and heading out into the chill less depressing. And this is where the beloved faux-fur coat comes in to save the day, almost every day of the week. Sure, there are a million other coat options to pick from for autumn/winter 18—from vinyl through to the puffer—but it's the fuzziest that are stealing our hearts, and subsequently warming the rest of our bodies.
Since so many designer brands have officially gone fur-free this year and the trend for fuzzy coats has been going strong for a few winters now, the game has officially been upped. Once upon a time, you could tell a cheap, faux-fur coat from a mile off and it was considered naff. That can no longer be said of the imitation fur out there: Some versions from ASOS, Zara and Topshop would fool even the richest fashion lovers in the world into thinking they were looking at a luxury item.
Style Notes: Make like Darja and go for a hint of colour with the InWear Gavi coat. Faux fur plus white boots equals perfection.
Style Notes: Clashing leopard with checks in a cool way to tick off two trends. This Topshop faux-fur coat has our pulses racing.
From the high street to designer brands, new styles abound. While Topshop and Hobbs have gone for coloured cropped coats, the likes of Shrimps and Dolce and Gabbana have opted instead for bolder prints like leopard and have rendered them in longer styles.
The street style set is backing anything that makes a statement, but for maximum wear across this season and the many cold winters to come in the future, we'd recommend opting for a soft chestnut brown first (they're classic). Read on to discover the 16 best faux-fur coats online right now.
