These temperatures are too damn low!
Let's face it, as trusty as our down jackets can be, they aren't necessarily the prettiest things on the planet. With statement fur coats and shearling storming the scene like they have been recently, we couldn't help wanting to cosy up in a pair of our own.
My faux fur shag coat and Alistair's shearling jacket are both incredibly comfortable and easy to layer up under. On a milder winter day (aka before we're hit with the double digit negatives), these babies are perfect paired with a quality sweater.
For this outfit, Alistair stuck to his guns and rocked what he knows best - neutrals. The classic white turtleneck and Chelsea boots combo let the coat do all the talking. A, word of caution though, try on the coat and check that it doesn't shed all over your inner layers before going ahead with the purchase.
Having being pestered by my friends for years, I've finally decided to give colour a shot. So, instead of jumping for the basic black or white shag coat I went straight for this bubblegum pink one and boy, was I out of my comfort zone! Still, I quite enjoyed mixing things up and am even more excited to play with colour in Dubai's gorgeous winter weather next week.
What's your take on faux fur coats and shearling for winter? Yay or nay? You already know our answer.
Until next time!
