I've been on the hunt for a faux fur coat since I moved to New York five years ago — and have come up unsuccessful season after season. Between the high price points of the ones I gravitate towards and the fact that I'm short (fluffy jackets tend to make me look like a marshmallow) it's a been a frustrating search, to say the least.
But, as often happens, Zara has come to my rescue in the form of this cream, striped faux fur I spotted during a recent trip to my local store. Not only is it slim cut and not too poofy, but it's also a bit longer than the chubby jackets I've tried on previously, making it much more flattering for us vertically challenged ladies.
Plus, it's modeled on the site by Garance Doré — who, in my opinion, is the chicest lady around — which certainly doesn't damage my case for buying it.
Faux fur coat, $169, available at Zara.
