Are fur coats back in fashion?
As the days get colder, I've noticed that fur coats are back in season again. The first time I remember seeing these coats was around the early to mid-2000s when celebs such as Aliyah, Lil Kim, Sean Combs (P Diddy) would wear them. They were worn mainly in music videos or attending fashion week shows. Around the same time, our parents use to rock them also. At this time I found them quite unfashionable. Recently, I’ve seen these coats on the rise again and I think they look quite trendy. I do see them as a multi-usage coat. The same coat can be styled with a basic tee, jeans and a pair of trainers during the day and a nice dress with a pair of heels in the evening.

What do I love about fur coats?
It can make a basic outfit look expensive without having to break the bank. I feel as though it adds personality to your outfit.
Here are a few of my favourite outfits. I quite like how they are styled. Majority of the styles I picked are leaning towards a more casual fit with a pair of feels to add a bit more 'glam'. These coats are amazing for winter as they are quite warm yet stylish.
