I'm Looking for a Coat That's Classy, Cosy and Will Make Me Look Rich—This Is It

Real fur has been off the fashion agenda for some time now, but just this Thursday the British Fashion Council put it on paper, announcing an official ban at all London Fashion Week shows from 2024 onwards. And whilst real fur has long been out of style, the friendlier faux version is truly finding its footing. Undeniably glamorous, a faux-fur coat toes the line between comfort and elegance, delivering a resoundingly chic silhouette that will keep you looking put-together and feeling cosy all winter long.

Channeling Old Hollywood glamour, the style set began integrating the coat style into their wardrobe rotations earlier this year, styling them with warm 

leggings and knee-high boots, super-short minis or their favourite pair of jeans, for any and all occasions.

Alexa Chung was recently pictured in a cosy-looking shearling Max Mara coat in a soft beige shade at the launch of the label's Fluffy Residence in London, serving as proof that if you're wearing a great coat, you can get away with just about anything underneath (even nothing at all, in Chung's case!).

Jumping on the bandwagon, Hailey Bieber was spotted wrapped in a fluffy, grey, ankle-grazing number, complete with an oversized furry bag in her clutches. The model finished her elegant look with sleek black boots and a polished bun; helping to keep her outfit looking fresh and neat.

Across the market, high-street and designer brands alike have tested out the trend this season, offering up fuzzy, fluffy styles in lengths from cropped to floor-grazing that are guaranteed to make you look rich, even if you opt for a more affordable pick. From The Frankie Shop's chic shag coat to H&M's perfectly dramatic version, there are plenty of brilliant faux-fur coats to choose from this winter.

So if, like the A-listers, you're interested in shopping the season's snuggliest outerwear trend, read on to discover our edit of the best faux-fur coats.
