For many women, there are moral or monetary barriers when it comes to considering the fur trend. No matter what side of the debate you are on, one thing is certain, no other garment stirs up more controversy and emotion than the fur coat. Do you lean towards the side of ethics or aesthetics? The best way to avoid this dilemma is to go faux. With advancements in synthetic fibre technology, faux fur has come a long way. You’d be hard pressed to find the difference between the real thing and some faux options. Which begs the question, are you brave enough to wear a realistic faux fur coat and potentially have to explain yourself to over zealous animal conservationists?
The subject of today’s post certainly knows how to rock a faux fur jacket. Note how she’s managed to balance the coat’s top-heavy silhouette by keeping the bottom streamlined. Go for figure hugging options down below. She has opted to dress down the coat by teaming it with a novelty tee, micro mini, baseball cap and platform sneakers. The look has ghetto fab written all over it!
