In the midst of SS18 fashion week and its show-stopping street style, I began thinking about expanding my coat collection. I wanted to combine the glamour of the jaw-dropping faux fur with practicality, great quality, and affordability. Beauties, I’ve hit the jackpot with this piece in Sapphire. First, the A-line fit allows for layering and comfort in wear, not to mention that the length, covering your behind, will keep you warm (It also happens to be parent-approved).
Second, the vegan fur is of great quality, in that it is smooth, plush, and incredibly soft. I cannot stress the difficulty in finding such qualities in a faux fur, but when you do, it definitely isn’t a piece that you should leave behind.
Lastly, the colour is moody, yet striking. Being the person that genuinely believes that a great coat can be the outfit, I focused on accentuating the sapphire tone by wearing a white shirt dress and black over-the-knee boots. I found both pieces to provide a slimming effect, thus balancing out the plush and semi-oversized coat.
In addition, I opted for a size up, to allow room for potentially thicker layers and a cozier fit. Similarly, while I initially purchased the coat in Jade, I found the Sapphire option to be more suitable for my fair skin tone and blonde highlights. Lastly, check out some other faux fur coat options in a shorter red, a longer turquoise, and a medium-length pink.
Hope this bold, yet collected look inspires and pushes your style to stand out during the upcoming cold and gloomy months.
