18 really quite excellent faux fur coats and jackets

8

I’m so glad that faux fur is having an extended moment—in fact, I think perhaps it has moved on from moment status to classic, do you not agree? I like it because it’s fun and a little sexy (depending on how you play it) and, not incidentally, so very warm—which means a lot to me because lately there is nothing I dislike as much as being cold. I do think this one looks quite cozy, and has such good lines. It’d be great with a flowy dress.

I like how this has the lines of a classic winter overcoat, but it’s furry. Also, the camel color is chic.

But could anything be happier than this red option?

A very sophisticated choice, with a slightly flared sleeve, which usually I don’t like but that I approve of here.

I want this one from Vince bad: it’d be so cute with jeans and big boots.

And this toggle coat is high on my list, too: there is just something so perfectly Ali McGraw about a toggle coat.

 

I love the idea of faux fur in a rich navy.

Whenever I’m on the Upper East Side in the winter, I marvel at how warm all the fancy ladies look in their super-long fur coats. I’m not especially jealous as I’m not a fur-wearer, but I do think there’s something to all that length. This would be my version of that look.

I believe this shaggy number may be my favorite of the bunch: so Lady Rock Star.

And why not a yellow jacket? Do you know how hard it would be to stay in a bad mood in a yellow jacket?

This cropped jacket would look fantastic with a hoodie layered under it.

Another very cozy choice.

A Levi’s trucker jacket, all done up in faux.

A leopard print bomber that’d be fun for nights out or whenever.

I like the side-button closure here.

This is just so sweet, and eminently layer-able.

I like the wide lapels here.

And finally: the ribbon trim really makes this one.

    I’ve never been a fur wearer either, but I have my eye on a few items at houseoffluff.com, in particular, the teal green Mongolian sheep coat. It looks amazing…

    A superb collection, but the superb red and excellent leopard print take the cake for me.

    I bought a fake fur leopard print bomber jacket last year and have found it to be surprisingly versatile, ergo I highly recommend the one you show. My heart is set on that red one––oooo lala!––and I’m trying to justify the Levi trucker jacket because it would be PERFECT to throw on when I take Betty out on her first-thing-in-the-morning sashay down the block.

    Ah, the flokati coat returns from the 1960s and 70s when they (usually grubby) were sign of having backpacked in Greece and Turkey. I bought a midi-length leather coat instead, and it hangs in the back of my closet, bringing back great memories. Maybe I’ll get one this time around!

    Ohhh, that long one from & Other Stories. And only up to size 10, grumble. I’d have snapped that up immediately! But now, those leopard prints, maybe that’s what I need.
