With each passing season, the list of designers going fur-free grows longer. Most recently, it-brand Gucci announced that their upcoming Spring Summer 2018 collection would be devoid of real fur. The company will join fashion powerhouses such as Calvin Klein, Armani and Net-a-Porter, all of whom have allied themselves with the fur free movement.
Now that it’s (finally) time to bring the layered outfits and winter coats, and there’s an abundance of fur-free options out there, here are some ways to stay warm with cozy faux pieces to add to your wardrobe.
You may have heard of I Am Gia, as they’ve gained popularity since their streetwear pieces have joined the wardrobes of Kaia Gerber and Bella Hadid. The Australian brand offers a well-priced selection of coats for the winter season. Their Stefani coat, for instance, features a classic leopard print and a relaxed fit. If you want something a little more oversized, the versatile Blair coat is a slouchy fit with interesting bell sleeves that add a fun detail
I Am Gia, Stefani Coat, $77
I Am Gia, Blair Coat, $130
If you’re looking for a longer silhouette, it’s worth checking out Mango’s selection of faux coats. This one in particular has wide lapels and falls below the knees, and is made with a luxuriously plush fabric that’s available in a statement banana yellow, or a subtler tobacco brown.

And finally, if you’re looking to invest in a high-end fur coat that has personality, take a look at British label Shrimps. They’re relatively new, and the founder, Hannah Weiland, created the brand revolving around quality faux coats. For an outerwear piece with plenty of attitude, the Helga Coat comes in a lovely shell pink with quirky contour drawings. The Elsie Coat, available in either a navy or moss green, features adorable faux sheepskin bows placed down the arms that make this piece an unforgettable addition to your wardrobe.
