Before shifting focus to spring style, I wanted to share my latest cold weather purchase, a fun faux fur coat!
What are your thoughts on this winter’s faux fur coat trend? After much consideration throughout this season, I finally decided to treat myself to this cozy, pink style. It’s been a while since I’ve invested in a statement piece like this, especially in my least favorite color to wear, but it’s kind of refreshing to own something a little out of the ordinary.
When I lived in Pittsburgh, I had a closet dedicated to outerwear, but in the South, owning a dozen jackets isn’t very practical. In fact, I probably only wear my one and only “heavy” coat a handful of times each year. (ps – it’s so warm and under $100!) But, after envying everyone else’s and surviving countless days below 30 degrees this year, I decided to add a fun faux fur coat into the rotation.
Of course, as soon as it arrived in the mail I thought, “how the hell am I going to wear this thing?” I mean, I think it would get Carrie Bradshaw’s approval but, it’s obviously quite unique. Then, I remembered the almost necessary rule to follow when wearing a statement piece: keep everything else simple. So, I decided to wear my new, fun coat with a plain white tee and call it a day. And you know what, I couldn’t be more proud of this purchase!
I’m definitely super glad I bought myself a faux fur coat before the season ended (and even have my eye on this one now). Have I convinced any skeptics to indulge in this trend? Are there any cold weather items you’re hoping to buy before winter ends?
