So I wore this faux fur coat to see American Hustle over the weekend, and I’m pretty sure other moviegoers thought I was in costume… to match the 1970’s fashion in the film. (You know – like how diehard fans would go see Star Wars dressed up as the characters? Ugh.) Anyways, great movie. And I love this coat because it looks a bit excessive, but is actually pretty practical (it’s the warmest thing I own). Plus, who doesn’t want to look like a furry linebacker?
An oversized faux fur coat (or real fur, if you happen to own one of those) works really when it’s styled with more casual pieces: jeans, t-shirts, simple sweaters – even a pair of cute sneakers. Fur is also great for fancy nights out, but the laid-back combo feels unexpected and fresh. I’m wearing mine here with black skinny jeans, a boxy white tee and pointed-toe pumps (white footwear always seems to have a pseudo-sporty and relaxed vibe, in my opinion – even when we’re talking heels).
