Jon Snow was right: Winter is coming. The mercury has dropped below zero, getting out of bed is proving harder than ever and there’s nothing we want more than to snuggle up with a pumpkin-spiced latte. We’ve unpacked our thermals, we’re layering like pros and our ‘big winter coat’ is on. But there’s only so much these things can do. Enter the faux fur coat.
Championed by the A-list and bloggers alike, the winter staple has made a major comeback this season, with a host of fun new styles on the high street. Gone are the days when our faux fur was simply black, brown or whisper it leopard print. In 2017, you can get it in bright pink, colour blocked or tonal. Quite literally anything goes.
Afraid of committing to the glam look? Worried about looking a little Cruella De Vil? Try a neutral, classic tone - black or brown - for starters, and team with coordinating skinny jeans and ankle boots, like Anneli Bush, or a cropped flare à Lucy Williams (both seen in the picture above). If you're feeling a little braver, opt for one of A/W 17's more daring styles, such as the patchwork Topshop coat worn by blogger Brittany Xavier (also at the top) making sure to keep the rest of your look as simple as possible.
