Despite many trends popping up on the runways and street style, winter is also made of great classics. As neutral, dark and earthy tones, plush textures and broad shapes appear renewed every season. And among the timeless wardrobe favorites, the faux fur coat is apparent. Previously, a big part of the maxi coats were made of real fur, but lately, creative directors have proved that it was possible to replace them with synthetic versions. In addition, textile technology has invested in the development of yarns that are similar to natural ones. And it has been a hit among fashionistas who do not give up luxury aesthetics.
Here, Cami and I show you two ways to wear models with different types of fur. Hers recalls a strong reference to the 1970s, when sheerling coats were covered with earthy tones.

The tricolor print was chosen by Anna Sui to give life to the look composed by two other patterns – showing that there are no limits to the mix of motifs. Just have one color in common between the three. As for Burberry, Christopher Bailey took the rainbow to his maxi coat with the emblematic plaid lining of the label.
For the evening, two versions to get inspired. Tom Ford presented an 80’s idea, elaborating a glam and sporty composition with the refined touch of the off-white coat. If it is monochromatic, Milly shows that the pink goes very well if mixed with its various nuances, showing rich and not childish textures.
