Faux Fur Coats Show The World You are With It 

Be it Mink, Fox, Beaver or Cougar, a fur coat used to be the ultimate status symbol. But wear one now, and you’ll look insensitive, and out of touch like you are trapped in a time warp.

That’s because a growing number of designers are moving towards cruelty-free and eco fashion, and have pledged to reduce or eliminate fur from their collections. Stella McCartney was the first to say no to fur, with others following suit. Now, even Versace has declared they are going fur-free in 2019.

The result is that faux fur is having a moment, and faux fur jackets like this stunning, plush green one (above) are flying out of the stores. Faux fur is progressive, and it sends a youthful message about the wearer. Novelty colors, textures and proportions give a light-hearted lift to this season’s faux fur coats.

Feel free to pair one with something casual, or dressy. Colored faux fur gives your outfit a fashion-forward vibe and looks exciting and dramatic especially when worn with black.

There’s a Bigger Selection of Faux Fur Jackets Than Ever

There’s no denying that until now, there’s been a lot of hesitation to embrace faux fur jackets because of how they looked and felt.  Many were poorly made out of cheap fabrics, and there wasn’t much selection. You could say most looked tacky, like a hairy bathmat or an Oscar the Grouch costume.

How things have changed! Thanks to better fabrications and many new modern styles and colors, fall’s new faux fur coats look much richer and luxurious, but they are also fun! Some are meant to look like fur knockoffs,  but the majority are simply more fashionably fur-inspired. In other words, more creative looking.

Whether you go for a glam faux leopard jacket or something more shaggy and hairy, there’s never been a better selection of faux fur jacket out there than now.

Faux Fur Jackets Add a Shot of Texture and Interest
