Fur was hugely popular in the 70s and 80s, and it made a huge comeback on the Fall 2009 runways featuring in the presentation of Viktor & Rolf, Antonio Berardi, Jean Paul Gaultier, Isabel Marant and Yigal Azrouël.
Whilst doing my Christmas shopping around Brick Lane I noticed something. Everyone seemed to be wearing a (faux) fur coat or jacket.
It seems like it’s not just Joe Public who likes fur coats, celebs do too.
From LA to Mahiki nightclub in London, celebs just love their fur coats and jackets to keep the winter chill at bay.
I love the colour of Sharon Stone coat. I would say hers is real along with fur lover Kimora Lee Simmons and Catherine Zeta Jones, who’s luxe brown fur coat makes her look so regal – barring those wedge boots of course.
Pixie Lott may have worn her trademark hot pants during a bitterly cold December, but she kept warm wearing a similar faux fur jacket I purchased in H&M last month.
We’ve picked out 3 fabulous coats at 3 different price points.
French Connection Big Foot Coat £75
Julien MacDonald Green Fox Fur Coat £4,898
A fur coat may seem a bit OTT in LA and Florida when temperatures are averaging 66°F, so Nicole Richie, Kim Kardashian and Fergie’s opted for gilets instead.
It is the perfect solution to keeping you warm but not too hot in during mild winters.
Gilets have been around since the 70s, so if you invest in one now it’s will surely come back in style again at some point so consider it an investment piece.
Rebecca Taylor Faux Fur Gilet £355
Gareth Pugh Goat Fleece Gilet £1,179
