I was reading a blog post about warm winter coats, and by the end of it I was amazed that all they talked about was puffer coats!  What about fur?  (Remember to always buy faux fur to protect animals.)  I believe fur is just as warm, and looks better, too!  Age doesn’t matter.  We can all look good and feel good in a warm fur.

If you’re looking to buy a new winter coat, you might want to take a look at some faux furs and treat yourself to a luxurious look.  There are many affordable options nowadays.

Although I realize we may tend to save our fur coats for evenings and special events, that’s simply not necessary.  There are fur coats that are more casual that can be dressed down during the day as well as dressed up during the evening.  That way you can look like a million on the daily.  And it’s great for the party season that ushers in Winter!
