Mango Snakeskin Gold Chain Circle Bag
Winter?!  I know, I know, we've only just wrapped our heads around Autumn.  But considering next week marks the start of a new month, and one that screams of fireworks, drinks by the fire, chilly evenings and plenty of cosy layers, it seems apt to figure out now how to combat the dropping temperatures while still looking chic.  My advice?  Textures.  Textures, textures and more textures.  With this in mind, I've fallen head over heels in love with faux fur coats; with Bandits London showing me how this doesn't necessarily have to mean 'plain'.  Quite the opposite, in fact...

This is the true (dreamy!) shade of blue of the second stripe of the jacket - (my style of editing has taken out the saturation a little)
First and foremost, colour.  It only takes a brief dive into my blog's history to see this had been something I'd shied away from.  Well, that's certainly not the case now!  Taste changes, as does fashion.  And so thankfully, this gorgeous striped faux fur jacket has appeared exactly at the right time.  I'm all about chic, flattering tones and colour combinations that make the heart flutter.  

Psst!  Take a peek at the Bandits London two-tone faux fur coat I wore last winter!

How to look chic in faux fur in winter
Ston Easton Park Hotel in Autumn 2018Ultimately, the way to look chic during the wintertime is to avoid chattering teeth and goosebumps running up your arms and legs, right?  Yet another reason to adore faux fur.  Which reminds me, Bandits London deal with only faux fur and so you also have the beauty of a clear conscience while wearing their bright and colourful designs.  Phew!  I'm a firm believer of there being very little reason to buy real fur now which other such luxurious options around now; I only wish you could feel how soft this jacket is through the screen.  It's pretty much like being wrapped in a hug!
