How To Style A Statement Faux Fur Coat

Black & white striped fur coat, black skinnies
All black and white - with no other colour - is highly unusual for me, but when you're styling a statement piece like this black and white striped faux fur coat then an abundance of colour is of secondary importance! It felt more than a little 1970s to me, so I went with the 70s groove and added my black floppy hat, though I think I'll be wearing it with a felt fedora too this winter. 

I've got more than a few statement coats now (I bought a couple last winter too) - I may complain about the cold but I sure love wearing a fabulous coat... I'm aware of the irony. What's your favourite coat to make a big statement - are you a faux fur lover, or do you prefer a patterned coat (checks and tartan are big this year) - or is a solid colour your weapon of choice? Do share!

P.S. Style tip: it sort of looks like I'm wearing pointed heel boots here - I'm not, it's skinny jeans, with heels and socks (yes, socks)! If you suffer from cold feet as I do, socks are practical but can look a bit rubbish with this type of look. If you wear socks that are properly, truly black (and it helps if they're quite new as well as black does fade), then you can get away with them making the heels look like boots. Result!

  1. this outfit is fabulous! if you've got to cover your outfit up by wearing a coat, then the coat itself must be amazing right? I have a bright yellow duffel coat that's probably my most statement-y, and a wool long swingy coat that's quite eye catching too. love how the sun looks on your hair btw!

  4. Love this! I bought a black faux fur coat I am trying to figure out how to wear. ....I always feel washed out in all black so I am still not sure what I will come up with.

  6. I totally thought you were wearing knee boots until I got to the PS! :o) As for coats, I love fur and wool, bold colors and patterns too.
