I'm not like a regular coat. I'm a cool coat.
There are two minor drawbacks to real fur coats:
- Fur is expensive AF
- The ethics of fur coats are questionable at best
But fur is so fluffy and soft! Ugh, dilemmas. EXCEPT! It's a dilemma no longer, thanks to science or something (who is responsible for figuring out a quality faux fur solution?). That's right, faux fur is seriously legit, and it (usually) is less expensive PLUS you don't have to worry about harming animals or PETA throwing paint on you.
Thank brands like Stella McCartney and Shrimps for making faux fur just as viable of an option. Even Topshop and ASOS have quality faux fur coats for decent prices. And I love how colorful all the coats are right now. MSGM has a patchwork style coat, See by Chloé is feeling the pastel pinks, and Trina Turk has a rainbow explosion of a coat for all you attention-getters out there.
So seriously, think about a faux fur coat! They're cozy and warm and totally on trend but forever classic.
