Faux Fur Coat & OTK Boots & The Perfect Christmas Gift

Multi-coloured Fur coat, OTK boots & cashmere hat | Fake Fabulous

Faux fur coats and over the knee boots... together!?
They sound like a trashy combination don't they?
{Maybe a potential costume for the winter version of pretty woman!}
Pretty cheap looking.
More nasty than classy.


Faux fur coats don't have to be sleazy and cheesy.
They can be fun to wear, and even stylish!
As for over the knee boots...
They don't need to be in red patent with a 5 inch heel.
They can be cool, comfortable and easy to wear too!

Today's outfit was a joy to wear, and warm as toast.

In true Fake Fabulous style it involved little (read: no) effort, and was as easy a pie to throw on.
Jeans, boots, a poloneck jumper and a coat.
Ready to rock and roll!

I love the fact that this coat gives the illusion of an 'outfit' when there isn't really one happening at all!
It's a fuzzy cheater.

My OTK boots are easy to pull on, and stop all thought of hemlines clashing or matching hosiery to footwear.
I just popped on a pair of fun legwarmers to add interest to the area between my boot and my jeans, and they keep my knees warm too!

A simple bag and a cosy hat finished things off nicely.

This hat is made by the same company as my gorgeous blue cashmere wrap and it's the warmest hat I own.
No joke.
{Even warmer than THIS furry beast!}

  2. What a fabulous outfit and totally modern and chic!! Like always!!!

  3. WOW.... that is such a fabulous coat, Samantha! I LOVE it! And the rest of the outfit looks so chic along with it. GORGEOUS!

    1. It's cool eh Suzy?
      I think it helps when the colours are in your palette, this is definitely an autumn coloured coat ... apart from the black bits of course! :oP
      Thank you for your kind words.

  4. What a great outfit; you look fantastic! Love the style, colors...perfect combination.

    1. Thank you so much Patty!
      I love these colours too. XXX

  5. Superb coat! Love the whole outfit. That's the joy of a statement coat; it does most of the work for you, and you look amazing! PS: voted as well! xxx

    1. Awwww... thank you so much Lisa!
      You are very kind.
      You are the mistress of the statement coat, so that means a lot.
      Go bold or go home :o)

  6. what a lovely outfit!, I like particularly that it was a joy to wear, and warm!, you're proving (once more!) that it's possible to look fabulous without freezing yourself!
    I love your coat, all those colors and the interesting pattern, and also love your boots, they always look so comfy & cool! (such a great idea to add those leg warmers with the little bow!)

    1. Hahahaha... yes Monica! I HATE being cold so heat is a must :oP
      Thank you for your kindness.

  7. Your faux fur is pretty special Samantha and when you claimed that it creates the outfit I had to agree completely! The design and unique combination of colors in this coat really raise the impact of the whole outfit. Pieces like this are wonderful to own. Those are also really high quality, nice boots . They look well made and the leather has a lovely finish. The little knee warmers (?) are so cute with the bows at the side.

    1. Thank you so much Judy!
      The boots are that lovely marked and almost 'flawed' leather that is super smooth in texture.
      I do love them and I'm so glad you like them too!!

  8. Okay, at first it did sound like a description of a hooker from Starsky & Hutch ;) but actually it's fab. I love the coat.

    1. Hahahahahahaha...yes indeed Izabel! I love that idea "Starsky & Hutch hooker" brilliant.
      I'm glad you changed your mind when you had a look :oP

  10. Oooh, i gave my hubby my leopard coat to hold during a shoot and he wore it on his shoulders saying it was his pimp coat! hey!! :-) love the colors in your toasty warm faux fur and those boots look great. i do love this look, especially the bow warmers!
    thanks for linking!

  11. I LOVE THIS COAT SO MUCH I HAVE TO CAPITALISE MY SENTENCE!!! (And also add a few exclamation marks at the end.) I have seen similar colourful faux fur coats on a few people but never knew what brand they were, can't believe yours is from M&S! I'm not traveling to anywhere cold anytime soon but ohhh that coat would be so dreamy to have in my own closet.

    What you said about it: " the illusion of an 'outfit' when there isn't really one happening at all" - I agree a 100% with you on the illusion part. Statement pieces tend to do that, don't they?

    Faux fur + OTK boots = winning combo in my opinion when done right, and you did it right Samantha.
