At Miss G Couture, we know that when it comes to keeping cosy, not just any outer layer will do. So, we put just as much thought into how our coats and jackets will look on our Miss G Dolls as we do our fabulous bandage dresses!
One outerwear style staple we welcome year after year is faux fur. And, while perfect for dressing up, we also love how versatile these wardrobe wonders can be.
So, whether you are wondering how to wear a faux fur out out casually, or want to know how to style a faux fur gilet, our guide to styling all types of faux fur is here for you!
Read on for our styling tips from the Miss G fashion experts…
Are Faux Fur Coats and Gilets in Style This Season?
To begin with, let’s just get one thing straight – faux fur is well and truly timeless! Whatever your style, these statement pieces instantly add a touch luxe appeal and glamour that simply never gets old.
What’s more, in recent years they have really been making a comeback. From celebrities to fashion bloggers, faux fur has been making a name for itself everywhere, so don’t be afraid to embrace it this season and beyond.
How to Wear a Faux Fur Gilet
Longing for some cosy autumn vibes? Look no further than a faux fur gilet.
These are the perfect mid-way point for adding a hint of texture, which is a great way to step up your day wear.

What to wear with a faux fur gilet
First of all, don’t be tempted into layering your gilet under your coat – unless it is really cold! Faux fur gilets make the best statement when worn as outerwear – particularly with a good chunky knitwear piece and some of our sleek over the knee boots.
They can also be worn over a dress if you want to add a little something extra to your evening outfit. However, just be aware of proportions – avoid wearing one with a full length dress or flared skirt. Instead, they are best paired with a more streamlined silhouette and neutral, pared back colours, so you don’t look too cluttered.

Faux fur gilets are best styled as a statement piece, so don’t go overboard with accessories and colour! We love them with boots, denim or even a jumper dress for keeping classy and cosy. For a night look, keep the rest of your outfit fitted and in proportion and you should nail this look with ease!

How to wear a faux fur coat out casually or formally
Faux fur coats are no longer only for evening wear! Luckily for girls who can’t get enough of them, they are now fully acceptable as daywear, too – so long as you follow a few fashion rules.
Firstly, don’t go overboard with the rest of your outfit. If you are wearing a fur coat casually, you want to tone down the rest of your garms. A shaggy texture definitely gives a more casual vibe, so look out for teddy coats or fleecy finishes.
Of course, if you don’t want to fully commit yourself to the pack, fur trimmed coats are a great compromise for casual occasions.
Secondly, pay attention to length. Longer length coats are often more elegant, so are great for pairing with your evening dresses. Shorter styles and bomber jackets go great with jeans or when you want to add a bit of fun to your party dress.
Finally, choose the right footwear. A fur coat requires your full fashion commitment, so don’t slack on the details! If you are wearing your faux fur coat casually, a stylish pair of ankle boots will look gorgeous. And for evening wear it goes without saying – throw on some strutworthy high heels!

How to style a black or white faux fur coat
Styling a black or white fur coat offers the ultimate way to make an impact! These monochrome colours are totally on trend and can really help you to stand out from the fashion crowd.
When you want to style a black faux fur coat, we recommend a full-on blackout! Wear with a black dress or high waist trousers for a totally luxurious looking outfit.
Alternatively, play with your opposites – throw a white faux fur coat over your LBD for a fashion-friendly contrast.
How to wear a pink faux fur coat
While most faux fur coats tend to stick to natural tones, recent trends have seen pastel colours make an appearance.
Pink faux fur coats are one of the most popular styles we’ve seen lately. Oh-so-feminine and chic, they look gorgeous when you want to wear faux fur casually. Pair with light wash jeans for a feminine feel – pastel pink looks grey with light blues, greys and ivory shades.
