All About Faux Fur

A couple of years ago I saw a faux fur gilet in Topshop and immediately fell in love. There was only one thing holding me back: the price tag. I think it was about €80 and as a poor student that is just too expensive.  

These days faux fur is back on trend and the stores are filled with faux fur items. I already have plenty of faux fur goodies, including this lovely coat from H&M that I got last year, but a gilet was still missing from my wardrobe. After browsing my favourite webshop, aka ASOS, I got my eye on this gorgeous TALL longline faux fur gilet. Still a bit too pricey (€80,88), but after a discount code I finally made the decision to order it. I could always send it back, right?

When my ASOS order arrived I ripped open the bag and put on the black gilet. I really liked the look of it, but still wasn't blown away. I loved it a lot, but it wasn't very slimming on me. Faux fur isn't the right material to make you look slimmer anyway, so with that thought I tried it on the next day to see if I liked it any better. After putting the gilet on a couple of times my love for it grew and I knew that it would be a huge statement piece in my wardrobe. It's something that will always be in style and will look good no matter what. I mean 18-year old me wanted a faux fur gilet so bad and this time around it was still on my wish list. 

It probably doesn’t surprise you that I kept it and I haven't had any regrets since. It's a lovely extra layer to keep me warm in the colder months and it looks stylish too! Next week I will talk about another item in my ASOS order: The Girlfriend Denim Jacket which I can't wait to tell you about!

What are your thoughts on faux fur gilets?


  1. There is something really stylish about a faux fur gilet, I had one a few years ago and stupidly threw it out when I was de-cluttering! I want another one now!
