A Not So Basic Faux Fur Jacket

If you are anything like me, then you have been loving the faux fur coats that are seen all over your Instagram feed. (If you are not already, you can follow Style with Amanda on Instagram here).

Who can blame you? Faux fur is cruelty-free, cozy and exudes luxury. Despite the current faux fur fashion trend, I personally have always loved wearing a faux fur piece or two. I do love glamorous fashion pieces after all, just look at this post.




I discovered this Mauve Faux Fur jacket while I was scrolling through Instagram. As soon as I saw the jacket, I needed to know where I could buy it! I loved that the jacket looked like pink cotton candy and unlike other faux fur coats it was not bulky. After discovering that this Mauve Faux Fur jacket was sold at the really cute, Canadian online store, Shop Basic Babe that was created by fellow blogger Lauren Sheriff, I was enticed to buy it. I love to support small local businesses and there is really is no better way to do that other than purchasing one of their products.



I am not an online shopper so purchasing this jacket was new for me. Luckily, the process was really easy and poof! The Mauve Faux Fur Jacket was at my doorstep. When I first tried it on, I was pleasantly surprised by how lightweight and cozy it was! I have quite a few faux fur coats and honestly, they are quite heavy so they weigh down my shoulders. Heavy, uncomfortable coats are a style turn off for this lady!




Another feature I love about this coat is the zipper! All of my other faux fur coats have buttons that burst open nearly every time I inhale which as you can imagine is annoying. It is nice to finally have a faux fur coat that stays shut no matter how much oxygen I breathe in.




As you can see, I have styled my Shop Basic Babe Mauve Faux Fur jacket with black accessories and clothing items. I went with black for this outfit because since this jacket is a lighter colour, I wanted to balance it with a darker colour plus I look better in darker, saturated colours.
