Fashion | Falling For Faux

As the colder months roll round I spend forever (and a day) searching the 'the coat'. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen the efforts I made this year to find the one for me...

Camel Faux Fur Collar Coat // New Look Inspire
Turtle Neck Swing Dress // ASOS Curve
Leggings // ASOS Curve
Fringe Boots // New Look
Handbag // River Island

Just as my hopes were dwindling, New Look Inspire released this casual camel cover-up. Everything happens for a reason, right? Being plus-size, I do feel like I miss out on trends I'd happily par-take in. I just want the standard range in bigger sizes. The faux fur collar was a big hit in 2014 and as the plus-size retailers play catch up, I'm rocking it this season.

Thick and well-made, this classic coat fits the bill when it comes to keeping cosy in winter - without being too heavy and breaking you into a sweat. Rather than buttons, which inevitably fall off, poppers keep the coat closed and snug. Having never come across this before, it's an aspect I surprisingly like. Several poppers are used to attach the faux fur shawl too, which not only helps when when it comes to cleaning but also makes pairing it with other pieces in your winter wardrobe easy. On the sizing front, this simple yet sophisticated coat keeps true to form. The casual fit means no sizing up is needed.

Finding the right coat for you is important, it's not only a statement but an investment piece that'll be worn all season long. Tell me what sort of winter coat you'll be reppin' this year, I'd love to know.
