When winter starts to kick in, sometimes your favorite coat doesn't exactly cut it when it comes to keeping you warm, or perhaps you have a fancy holiday soirée to attend or maybe, just maybe, you would rather not change out your PJs for a quick coffee-and-bagel run. A quick and stylish fix? A faux fur coat. Hear us out on this one.
With major fashion brands — Stella McCartney, Giorgio Armani and, most recently, Gucci — opting to go fur-free, as well as Vogue Paris's faux fur-heavy August 2017 issue, the alternative approach is becoming more popular among industry insiders and consumers alike. There are loads of faux fur jackets and coats (in fun colors and statements prints) available right now; they're perfect for a street style moment and possibly the easiest way to dress up any outfit, even if you're literally wearing what you wore to bed.
Browse the gallery below for 29 animal-friendly faux fur jackets and coats that you can show off during the cold weather months, and when someone compliments (or criticizes) your furry outerwear, you can pull a Cher Horowitz by simply responding, "It's faux!"
