As woollens and knitwear keep us cosy, they also can lack the glam we crave for stepping out in winter.
Step forward the faux-fur coat. Nodding to old-school glamour, the faux-fur coat has long been associated with winter sophistication and elegance. Embraced by Hollywood elite, the faux-fur coat has long been a chic statement.
Faux-fur has had previous success. In the 1970s, it seemed to grow out of the grim bleakness of a harsh reality. Versions of Mongolian coats and shaggy linings were the crème du couture and part of fashion's fabric.
Now, the trend has taken a far more 40s and 50s twist - the glamour presented in leopard prints and black fake fur. The high street has them in abundance, ensuring that the fashion-focused are fully fitted in the season's love of warm and wonderful winter coats.
Look at one of New Look's leopard print jackets from their Inspire range to see a model that is better than the real thing - far more humane and more attractive because of it.
The jacket is sleek and beautiful and references a range of coats by the store that show how well they play it fake. The Miss Real Burgundy Faux Fur Coat is a striking coat to wear with little black party dresses for a Christmas party. Full of 50s drama, the coat, also available in Mint Green, is a wardrobe piece that vamps up any outfit.
Faux fur works to exude glamour and grace this winter - perfect for days and nights singing carols or clasping champagne, the faux fur jacket is the hottest way to keep warm.
New Look are award winning fashion retailers, and offer a wide choice of clothing to suit all tastes.
