Faux fur coats – review of the top trends of 2016

By  |  0 Comments

These days we have to double-check weather forecast and our thermometers to make sure they haven’t gone crazy. Let’s admit it, the numbers are going down and it’s not getting any warmer soon! So, what choices can we make to stay warm, yet fashionable, besides the duffle coats and parkas? Turn to one of the biggest and most wanted trends of winter 2016 – faux fur coats!

Modern textile industry in tandem with the incredible creativity of talented designers has done it, they woke up the trend that has been dormant for the past 20 years and quickly took over the top spots of most of all the fashion collections this season. This trend is also popular because it offers a variety of purse-friendly choices along with the expensive high-street pieces. And let’s not forget the touch of luxurious elegance that a fur coat gives to your look!

Let’s dive in and see what are our top picks from this season’s collections, and discuss the most significant differences of this new fashion trend.

First of all, the material of your coat must be a FAUX fur! Luckily, the variety of colors, as well as styles – long shag, short shag, straight or curly, real fur look-alike, or on contrary, expressly fake – is abundant.

Secondly, pay attention to the sleeve. The length ¾ to elbow is the trendiest sleeve length. Here our common sense dictates that such coats should be worn with long gloves, however, slender  wrists peeking out of these sleeves, framed with short knitted or leather gloves look very chic and in vogue.

Thirdly, while colored fur coats is a fashion trend that’s been lingering for quite a while now, this year the variety of nuances is so rich, that you can definitely choose the one to your liking that compliments well your winter outfits. Dominant palette consists of tender and powder pastel colors, brown in all its shades, especially caramel and mocha, burgundy, and shades of blue and green. We don’t insist on any particular color as the spectrum is indeed wide. Judge for yourself.

Finally, the top 3 styles of the faux fur coats of 2016 are short fur coat, fur jacket, and a midi fur coat. We’ll begin with the leaders of the fashion collections: short fur coats that appropriately cover all the important places to keep you warm and cozy.

Fur jacket is undoubtedly the ultimate cover-up item of the year, however, we don’t recommend wearing it during frosty winter days! FWM is pro “healthy” fashion! Therefore, go for warmer accouterments while it’s snowing and put the fur jackets away until warmer days. Hint, hint, spring is coming soon!

Long fur coats will have to wait for other seasons. Yes, we hear all your arguments: “but fur is in fashion now, famous brands, new collections, bum, and legs are covered and warm… However, fashion is ruthless, and in 2016 season maxi coats are not in favor.
