Faux Friends

This season what better friend to have than a faux fur jacket? (Fooled you with the title didn’t I?)

I’ve seen so many amazing fur jackets around but the one I opted for is this dark emerald green number I found in Bershka. Dark green is one of my go-to colours as it doesn’t wash me out like some of the paler hues that are popular this year.

  Coming in at just €39.99, this jacket is an absolute steal. Luckily if the colour isn’t doing it for you, it’s also available in pink, beige and a grey-blue. (I’ve added the link below along with my outfit details). 

Now, for those of you wanting to grab yourself a faux friend I’ve compiled a list of five gorgeous items that you NEED in your wardrobe. The best part of this list? They’re all under €100.

My first pick is a black fur jacket from Zara. As we ladies know well, black goes with every thing and this seacaid is a must have. Pair this with slouchy jeans for a relaxed look or dress it up with some leather jeans for a night out. The jacket won’t have you breaking the bank either at just €59.95. https://www.zara.com/ie/en/faux-fur-jacket-p01255281.html?v1=4762560&v2=269184 

My next item on the list is a baby pink fur duster found in Mango. This jacket incorporates an 80’s-esque look with it’s shoulder pads and over sized fit. Style this with a messy bun and natural make up and you’ll be good to go. This fab duster comes in at €89.95. https://shop.mango.com/ie/women/coats-coats/shoulder-pad-faux-fur-coat_11049042.html?c=81&n=1&s=search

The third faux friend I’ve chosen for this list is a bold choice but I am absolutely in love with it. For those of you daring enough to wear a cropped, royal blue fur jacket, head over to NastyGal and admire this gorgeous find. It’s a little pricey at €90 but I think it’s totally worth it. Imagine this with mom jeans and a slogan white tee? http://www.nastygal.com/ie/as-fur-usual-cropped-jacket/AGG94927.html

I’m heading back to Zara for number four on the list but let’s be honest. Zara does both jackets AND faux fur well. This is a bit more out-there than our black piece above but it’s equally as amazing. I recently tried this multi-shade faux friend on in store and I didn’t want to take it off. Pair it with grey boots and high waisted denim for a lighter winter look. For €69.95 you’ll be looking fabulous is this grey item. https://www.zara.com/ie/en/colored-textured-jacket-p02969255.html?v1=4744020&v2=269184

For those of you who aren’t feeling the fur jacket look I’ve included a gilet in the list. I understand that a fur jacket is not for everybody so if you want to try something that’s a little less full then on have a look at H&M’s faux gilet. It’s €34.99 so it’s a nice price if you’re only experimenting with the faux fur trend. I love styling gilets over turtle neck jumpers for winter wear. http://www2.hm.com/en_ie/productpage.0532740001.html?CAWELAID=120326810000028506&gclid=CjwKCAjwhOvPBRBxEiwAx2nhLtwdK7ApBW7nAIP36X8Q1wQ6_YvtCJpdxnuKAJ8HwJahZNQTae683hoCE7IQAvD_BwE

Hope you gals enjoy the list x
