Let’s talk about my favourite winter style, faux fur jackets! With winter at our doorstep and Christmas just round the corner, a good faux fur jacket is my must have item for the cold bitter days ahead! Plus, they look stunning with a vintage style twist.
I’ve always found it hard to find a decent plus size faux fur jacket that fits, there are a lot of jackets out there but not many that cater to the plus size body. Again, brands really need to work on that!
There are some really cute ones being sold in the US but customs can really hurt the budget, so I’ve come up with a little guide on where to buy in the UK.
Asos have done a really good job with this one. I love the overall colour and cut of this jacket, the cream colour makes it a lovely neutral piece, so you can mix and match with accessories for any style. Style it with some cute skinny jeans, ankle boots and jumper and you’re ready to hit the high street to get some last minute shopping done.
You can never have enough leopard print in my opinion. Our lovely Sophie rocks this coat, it’s the perfect combination of sass and sophistication. Finally, with the size going to a 32, it’s a big hit with us at SMB.
If you’re looking for something a little more luxurious, then Navabi is where it’s at. With a longer cut, this coat aims to keep you warm and glamorous. Perfect for a Christmas party or night out. Personally I’d pair it with a 20s flapper dress and sparkly heels.
So, this is my favourite. I personally own this coat and I call it the Beetlejuice pimp coat of dreams. The long fur has a luxurious feel to it and the stripes make it fun! Furthermore, it’s quirky, warm and a must have.
Let us know what you think, are there jackets we might have missed? SMB would love to hear from you.
