I have a thing for coats and I’m always on the lookout for new ones to add to my collection. Recently colorful fur (hopefully faux) coats have been catching my eye. I noticed a preponderance of them while looking at street style photos from the Fall 2017 fashion shows. They are all over the place. Here are some of my favorites*:
I giggled as I put the above image together. The ladies, all together on the page, do look a bit like the cast of the Muppets. For some of you the possibility of looking like a Muppet will be an immediate turn off, for me, however, it’s a bonus. Just like the Muppets these jackets are loud, proud and unabashedly HAPPY. If wearing a colorful fur coat will help channel that mentality, I am all over it. Especially during these dog days of winter (that might not be a phrase….)
It’s my preference to spend as little as possible on “crazy”/”loud” clothing items because I only wear them a few times a year (let’s be honest I only have so many places to wear my crazy loud clothing). I don’t like to break the bank on items that aren’t in heavy rotation in my wardrobe. Luckily for me there are plenty of very affordable colorful faux fur options. My personal favorite: the yellow car coat (2). I GOTTA have that.
