The Best Affordable Faux Fur Coats to Buy Now
Real fur who?
If you've been hearing a lot about faux fur lately—more than usual for this time of year, even—well, you're not alone. With major fashion brands including Diane Von Furstenburg, Michael Kors, and Coach banning fur from their collections, the anti-fur movement is taking off in a big way, and making room for high quality alternatives.
Developments in textile technology mean the faux fur coats and jackets hanging on the racks in your favorite stores are nothing like the plastic-feeling ones from your parents' generation. Instead, you can shop for cruelty-free outerwear that feels exquisitely soft, and will last you for years.
Often, fur-free alternatives are better than animal-derived products, beyond just ethics. Faux fur can be designed to minimize shedding, provide varying levels of warmth and thickness, and it'll never have that wet dog smell.
We've rounded up our 11 favorite faux fur coats that will keep you warm and stylish this season. Scroll on below to see our picks.
