Faux Fur Jackets for Winter Warmth

Faux fur jackets, combined with turtlenecks and scarves, are the best weapons against  this very cold winter ! Today I am fathering a jacket borrowed from a friend. It is from Zara in Barcelona.  I love the thick furry texture. It was very insulating and cozy-warm.

I wore it with simple skinnies and black buckled booties for warmth and comfort.  Faux fur jackets are fun to wear, so luxurious in feel, and so lightweight.

WE SAW TEMPS THIS WEEK, OF NEAR 20 DEGREES BELOW 0, WHEN YOU FACTOR IN THE NEAR HURRICANE LEVEL WINDS. STAYING WARM WAS SERIOUS BUSINESS. FAUX FUR JACKETS CAN BE A GREAT TOPPER FOR THIS SORT OF EXTREME COLD.

Don’t forget your sunnies when it is bright outside or snowy. Also keep your skin and lips well hydrated. I used a Bobbi Brown Lipstick that I love, featured and linked in my polypore post.  It is hydrating and great for cold weather .

Below is a shopping EDIT. I rounded up the best faux jackets from Mango, Macy’s, The Outnet , – my fav of this group, check it in all of the colors!-  and Ted Baker. The specific links for each will be found on my Polyvore page, and are pictured below.

  1. I’m a big fan of faux fur and prefer vintage when I can find it. I bought a massive teddy bear coat recently that I haven’t shown on the blog yet that is super warm. It is from the 1960s and just gorgeous. It is VERY heavy but that is also why it keeps me so warm. I also have another one that looks very Jackie O that I’m very fond of for sale in my store. Every time I look at it I think I should take it out of my store.

    Love this glam look on you! You look so HOT, not cold ; P

  2. Count me as a fan of the faux fur jacket! They are indeed as warm as you say! I’ve found all of mine (and I have many) in second-hand stores! This is a fabulous, classic look on you, Elle! Stay warm, my dear! We’ve been having very mild temps up here, so sending some your way.

    1. I am glad it is mild there! You do have some fabulous coats , an amazing collection ! I have not found any faux fur coats second hand…. yet!
      Happy Monday!
      Xoxo, Elle

  3. I loved your outfit, dear Elle! I love black outfits and as you said, the jacket is cozy and warm, which is very important now, with extreme cold temperatures. Also very important to wear sun glasses – even a person like me, who don’t like to wear sunnies, had to on of these days! Loved your boots as well! You always look chic and this fake fur jacket is really cool! Hope you have a great day! Hugs!

  5. That looks like such a cosy coat, but also so fun to wear!

    I can’t imagine it being that cold, it gets cold here at winter but nothing like that, we don’t even have snow!

    Hope that you are having a lovely weekend! Another extreme weather weekend here. So hot, we are staying near the air conditioner. Very different from your current weather, haha!

  6. You look gorgeous Elle and you are ever so right: these faux fur jackets radiate luxury and warmth while being light and super practical too. A perfect pick. Happy weekend. Love, Lieske

  7. I got some gorgeous items in the Barcelona Zara when I went, I love the fact it’s so much cheaper and some different items in comparison to the UK stores. I love your faux fur jacket and it sounds perfect for the very extreme cold weather you’ve been having. Great styling amidst the poor weather conditions!

  9. Elle, I love faux fur and I have to admit I own at least 10 such jackets 🙂 The jacket you borrowed from your friend is very beautiful and I love it you styled this time this amazing jacket in that simple way. You are right, keeping warm is important – especially for the temperatures you have at the moment. Stay warm <3
