How to Rock Faux Fur This Winter

What to do when you’re a passionate fighter for animal rights but have a fashionable soul that finds fur really appealing? Well, rock faux fur, of course. It looks great, it keeps you warm during colder winter months and there’s no animal cruelty involved. Still, if you’re new to this trend, you might benefit from some tips and trick on how to enjoy faux fur garments and accessories confidently. In that respect, following points can prove to be very helpful for upgrading your own fashion style.

Furry hats

Balance is still the biggest factor in determining whether your faux fur hat will look great or out of place. Combining fur hats with fur coats may be the hardest thing to pull off when putting an outfit together. Still, if you stick to the simple hat lines and neutral colors that don’t clash with your coat, you’re good to go. On the other hand, a fabulous faux fur hat can spice up any plain outfit, especially if it’s the only fur detail in your attire. Then again, if you’re wearing all black and elegant outfit, matching the fur hat to your gloves during winter can make a big difference.

Fluffy Coats

If you follow the world’s famous fashion bloggers, observe street fashion and keep track of latest runway projects, you definitely noticed the burst in faux fur popularity. In general, fur coats have become a fashion statement. You can find amazing pieces in different cuts, colors and patterns. Still, if you want to jazz up your winter wear with a gaudy faux fur coat, make sure to keep the rest of your outfit simple, with just few decorative bits. In this case, there’s a fine line between looking as a runway model and a masquerade champ. “Less is more” approach will help you achieve the first one.

Warm Shoes

Fluffy faux fur boots are making a comeback in contemporary fashion. They look best when combined with skinny jeans, but wearing these with shorts or skater skirts and tights has also become characteristic of street fashion. Baggy or loose pants and mid-length or really long skirts and dresses do not match well with this type of footwear. What’s more, these boots will keep you warm but they won't be the best choice when it rains or snows outside. If you’re interested in furry details, you’ll be glad to know that there are many elegant stilettos and sandals with delicate faux fur decorative bits available. These can be freely paired with various outfits.

Cuddly Bags

Rocking a faux fur bag has become a really popular trend recently, especially when it comes to adding a unique twist to your fabulous ladies clothing. Depending on your usual outfit combinations, you should strive to find a bag that matches and upgrades your overall style. Still, bags are generally the first to get dirty or shabby, so make sure to take regular and proper care of your furry bag as well. Otherwise, it won’t look flattering and fashionable at all.

Foxy Details

If you don’t want to feature faux fur too much in your outfit but still want the texture it provides, you can always opt for jackets and coats that have faux fur trim or lining. In this case, colorblocking with bright faux fur has taken the fashion world by storm.

In the end, it’s all about what makes you feel comfortable and confident. If you really want to get on the faux fur band wagon, but have no prior experience, start with baby steps. Introducing furry accessories and details gradually will effectively help you discover your own take on faux fur fashion.
