Halloween is the perfect time to pull out our faux fur coats and style them in anticipation of the chilly weather. Apart from outerwear that helps keep you warm, a fuzzy topper is also a stylish one-and-done outfit, whether it’s a modern crop or a glamorous and retro oversized silhouette. While some of these costume ideas involve adding additional accessories to make a convincing case for your chosen persona, you don’t need to collect more than a jacket for the foundation of your outfit.
From Melanie Daniels (played by TP Hedren) in 1963’s “The Birds” to Margot Tenenbaum (Gwyneth Paltrow) in 2001’s “The Royal Tenenbaums,” plenty of movie characters are synonymous with their iconic quote moments. And while these women were dressed in the classic camel-colored style, a crisp, white coat can help you achieve a convincing Kim Cattrall as Samantha Jones in the movie “Sex and the City” or the animated character Cruella de Vil, when finished with a pair. Red gloves and a swipe of lipstick.
Meanwhile, you can take the pop culture route and see Rihanna show off her impeccable maternity style in purple fur and a Gucci slip dress, Lady Gaga in a cobalt blue “cookie monster” design styled with sky-high platforms, or the Vogue editor-in-chief. Anna Wintour in leopard, her chosen print for years, complete with her signature bob and black sunglasses.
Ahead, get ideas for your best Halloween costume in a fur coat and shop some pieces to help you get the look.
