Ladies, the time has come to fake it. From cosy furry coats to sprinklings of fuzzy trimmings, faux fur is firmly back on the fashion radar so you’ll not only be toasty when temperatures plummet, but super-stylish too.

Building on last autumn/winter’s trend for colourful and original faux fur styles, designers have taken it one step further this year, opting for playful patterns, bold stripes and vibrant colours including luminous neons. A full-on faux fur coat makes for a serious style statement while a colour popping faux fur stole will give your look an eclectic edge.

If you prefer a more muted, natural look, then go classic with a shaggy faux fur coat in a neutral tone. An effortlessly glamorous look that will take you from day to night in style, we recommend pairing your furry friend with skinny jeans or leather trousers to balance out proportions.
