December 21 marks the first official day of winter, so what better way to celebrate the cold-weather season than by wrapping yourself up in a fabulous faux-fur coat? Apart from being extremely cozy, faux-fur coats are effortlessly elegant. However, if you need any further evidence (and perhaps some styling guidance), we have the street style set to thank for the ultimate outfit inspiration. Just last week, fashion darling Hailey Bieber stepped out in a floor-grazing faux fur that caused quite the sartorial stir. She styled the maxi atop a slinky Saint Laurent minidress, sheer tights, and additional Saint Laurent accessories.
According to these stylish street stylers, a faux-fur coat should be the centerpiece of your winter wardrobe, but that doesn’t mean that the other pieces of your outfit can’t shine. For example, Khaite’s Ada coat is the perfect counterpart to a pair of tailored trousers from The Row and an easy white T-shirt from Everlane. Statement accessories like Celine Eyewear or a Zara moon bag are also not to be ignored. From By Malene Birger, the Kavela faux-fur coat is a twist on the classics, featuring a high neck and exposed paneling. Like this street styler, pair yours over a timeless turtleneck, pleated pants from the Frankie Shop, and pointed-toe boots from Totême. If your style leans more feminine, an Apparis coat worn over a floral frock from Dôen is a sweet styling combination. And because a Max Mara teddy coat is always at the top of our winter shopping list, take a styling cue from this chic fashion insider and wear yours atop a crisp striped button-up from Anine Bing and a denim maxiskirt from Reformation.
This winter and beyond, here are 10 street-style-approved ways to wear your new favorite faux-fur coats and jackets. Happy shopping!
The Model-Approved Maxi
When fashion darling Hailey Bieber stepped out in a floor-grazing faux fur, it caused quite the sartorial stir. She styled the maxi—this one from Mango—atop a slinky Saint Laurent minidress, sheer tights, and additional Saint Laurent accessories. Get her look, here.
The Winter White Wonder
The foundation of any winter white wardrobe begins with a fabulous faux-fur coat. Enter Khaite’s Ada coat, which oozes elegance and sophistication. Like this street styler, pair yours over a tailored trouser from The Row and a plain but perfect tee from Everlane. For an elevated daytime look, accessorize with cat-eye sunnies from Celine, D’Accori silver slip-ons, and Zara’s moon bag.
The Chic Cropped Jacket
Like a faux-fur coat, a faux-fur jacket is masterful in your winter wardrobe. Best worn over a knit dress, like this one from Totême, or with relaxed jeans on the weekend, Unreal Fur’s is a perfect pick. Accessorize appropriately with Prada’s Femme lady bag and Laura Lombardi’s chunky gold necklace. Reformation’s knee-high Remy boots will be a mainstay in your closet, as will these drop earrings from Elsa Peretti.
The Statement Shearling
If you want to achieve that model-off-duty aesthetic, then look no further, because this stylish street styler has you covered. Beginning with a statement shearling, of course, a simple yet sexy camisole pairs perfectly underneath. Next, find Wandler’s wide-leg Magnolia jeans and Nike’s cult-classic Air Force 1s. A Western-inspired belt from Saint Laurent is an unexpected outfit addition, as are these tinted sunnies from Velvet Canyon.
