Style on Trial: Topshop Exclusives faux fur sleeve boyfriend coat

Topshop Exclusives faux fur sleeve boyfriend coatAt first glance we thought there were small animals protruding from the armholes of this coat.  And that scared us a little bit.

Once we’d recovered and realised that those were the sleeves, we couldn’t decide whether we liked the coat or not.  We’re used to seeing faux fur on the collar of coats, not on the sleeves.  Do we want our winter coat to channel Ewok chic with furry arms?  We’re not convinced we do.

What do you think though?  Will faux fur sleeves catch on as an alternative to faux fur collars?  Or are they just a bit weird?

You can buy the coat for £130 here.

    @fashionpolice Hmmm maybe it feels good to hold his arm, but I don’t know if it looks good or not.

    Would have been lot better if the fur was confined to the cuffs. Actually I had one like that some time back!!! Acceptable if it was on both collar & cuff – Just cant accept it like this!!!!!

    I actually kindalike it. Had the sleeves been LINED with fur instead of covered with it I wouldve bought this up in a hearbeat. But I dont wanna look like I’m turning into a werwolf :/

    I hate fur on clothing, whether it’s fake or not, but this just crosses the line!
