Now that it’s November, the weather is just going to get colder by the day. If you’re looking for something dressier than a puffy coat, a luxurious faux fur coat is perfect, and will keep you warm for years to come. Unfortunately, some spotted and furry styles conjure up images of Disney villain Cruella de Vil – which makes us weary about wearing them. So, before you head to the fur shop, check out our tops for wearing faux fur this season:

Dress Up A Basic LBD

A faux fur coat is the perfect accessory for a formal evening out. Start with this Juicy Couture Faux Rabbit Fur Coat ($360) over a simple little black dress, like this one from Lounge Lover ($150). Throw on some lace tights – we love the Spanx Bloom Tights ($28) that tuck us in too. And slip into a pair of simple black booties, such as these Fergie ‘Ruckus’ Booties ($99.95) and you’ll be looking like a diva in no time at all.

Classic Black = Laid Back Look

The rumors are true – you can wear a faux fur coat as an everyday jacket, especially this Urban Reneal Vintage Faux Fur Coat ($88). Try it with a loose cashmere sweater, like this Slouchy Sweater from J. Crew ($98, down from $168). Add some super dark skinny jeans, such as thee J. Brand Slit Ankle in Ink ($50, down from $99) tucked into these Unisa Rosina boots ($85), aka the ideal tall black flat boots.
