This week I wore my new faux fur coat to the hairdressers, prompting the comment from my hairdresser of “oh what a fun coat!” He’s right. This coat is the epitome of fun. It is a side of fashion that I love. It is enjoyable to wear, it makes a statement and it says something about the person wearing it.
The multi-coloured pattern in this coat is undoubtedly loud, but the neutral colours in it on their own would not be. All are gorgeous in their own right! There’s something about the combination of these that just turns heads. They are all very seventies inspired hues and work fantastically well together. This coat is a little bit of a work of art and I love it!
I paired this coat with an all black ensemble. With something this bold and jazzy it’s generally better to let the coat make the outfit. It doesn’t need to be paired with colour,plus the black allows it to really stand out. I developed a true appreciation of what black offers to an outfit from my year in France as a student. Black is a staple of the French woman’s closet for a very good reason; it’s elegant in all situations. You can’t go wrong with it.
The black jeans are from Zara and are coated to get a faux-leather look. I love these jeans, they are slightly toned down from actual faux-leather but still add an edge to an outfit. I am a fan of mixing textures, the harsh edge of the coated jeans paired with the fluffiness of the coat works really well.
I can’t wait to try this coat out with different outfit combinations, nor to wear it out again. It’s also beautifully warm which is a huge bonus!
