    So I am completely in love with this coat (I keep going into the store to stroke it...)

    Thing is, I'm a uni student so most of the time at the moment I'm dressed in skinny jeans/chinos and boots/brogues/loafers. I can't justify buying this coat unless it's going to work with those kind of things, and I'm not sure that it would! What do people think?

    No. White faux fur is a big faux pas. It makes anybody look a lot more cheap and tacky than they are, and clashes horribly with any outfit which wasn't built around it. Also- it looks shiny, which is the worst thing faux fur can be.

    If you buy a statement piece don't buy it to fit it around what you already wear, change what you wear to fit around it.

    its onli £60, surely u cud just buy it, wear it a few times and then return it. After all u are a student, and under no other circumstances would it be acceptable.

    If you want to buy it, just think of it as an investment? Its not a coat that your going to wear all the time, and its not meant to be

    It's pretty ugly tbh. But if you realllly like it then just buy it? I think depending on what you wear it with though, it is likely to look even cheaper/tackier.

    Very very few people can wear this without making it look cheap and tacky. If you are one of those people, go ahead!

    It looks HIDEOUS! It looks like it was fashioned from the backside of a polar bear.
