It’s very in to dress like the rich right now, so it’s no surprise that fur is trending this winter.

While minimalist silhouettes, gender neutral layering and quality tailoring are what’s going on underneath, the big designers are all about throwing an extravagant fur coat over-the-top of a classic outfit. It’s a delectable combination of timelessness-meets-maximalism — Cruella DeVil-ing it up in an otherwise simple look.

Adding fur to any outfit certainly gives it a new feel. You can take a look from business-chic to don’t-mess-with-me drama in the time in takes to throw on a fur.

Throughout fashion month this year, leading designers showcased their own take on fur. For Stella McCartney, it’s playful youthfulness.

Opting for a staple overcoat cut, with a wide collar and an oversized sleeve — she created two fur coats in the same cut, with different colourways. The relaxed fit of these coats lend themselves to quiet luxury, looking effortless but rich.

Zimmermann’s winter runway during Paris Fashion Week showcased a different kind of fur, opting for a sheerling look.

Although less extravagant, the neutral colourway and collar-less design lends itself to a more refined and elegant look.

Then, there was Valentino. Making it all about texture, the Italian designer went full maximalism — while maintaining a sense of permanency.

Overall, we can’t argue that fur doesn’t add to an outfit. We’re all about adding texture, extra warmth and an element of uniqueness to our winter outfits this year.

Where Can You Shop Ethical Fur Coats in Australia?

When looking into buying animal products, it’s important that we consider what is ethical and sustainable. In the case of fur, we’d recommend buying ethically-made faux fur! You still get that fur look and feel, but it’s a more sustainable choice than real fur.

Real fur production has a major impact on the environment, including water pollution, energy consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions. And let’s not forget the inhumane treatment of animals that often goes hand in hand with real fur. With faux fur, you can have the best of both worlds: a fashionable accessory that doesn’t harm animals or the planet.

So why not add a cozy faux fur jacket or a fluffy faux fur scarf to your closet this season? You’ll look great and feel good about your choice at the same time.

Below, we’ve compiled five of our favourite faux fur jackets to shop in Australia right now.
