“I only recently discovered Jakke, and after seeing its coats IRL, I couldn’t believe how good its faux-fur offering was,” says Montgomery. “I opted for the Rita in a statement-making shade of blue, as it feels like a more interesting and modern interpretation of the classic faux-fur coat—plus it’s super cosy!”
She admits that she found this piece harder to style than she imagined, but that the moment it went on with white jeans, she knew she’d found a winner—it was the perfect fit. “I personally prefer to have just one OTT piece in an outfit, but you could also happily embrace the clash with brightly coloured separates,” she says.
As for the vital details to know on this coat, first up, it’s not as bulky as you’d imagine. “It’s so unbelievably soft that my cat is permanently trying to make friends with it. It’s also a lot lighter than you’d expect,” Montgomery says. And so, if you want a more snug fit, she’d recommend sizing down, as this is designed to be oversized.
