Faux fur toppers and coats use to remain tucked away for the majority of the year – only worn for glitzy special occasions, like New Year’s Eve and Winter Galas.
Today, faux fur has transitioned from a special occasion style into a seasonal staple.
Post-Holiday season is the best time of the year to snag one of these cuddly numbers – retailers begin placing their orders for Spring the first of the year and need to get rid of their winter furs. You know what that means – major discounts.
Begin With the Basics
Assuming this is your first foray into faux fur land, I would recommend buying a solid colored print versus a patterned piece. Don’t get me wrong, I love a bold patchwork or (faux) animal print – but it may be a bit “much” for you if you’re just now warming up to the idea of wearing a fur to Sunday brunch. Instead, opt for blush tones with feminine finishes, a full length number , or simply go with solid black which can easily be worn with anything.
Flatter Your Figure
The last thing I want when I top off my outfit with a fur is to feel like the fur is taking over. in the mirror before I head out . To tone down the extra bulk of a fuzzy coat, wear solid, monochromatic colors for your base layer. A black, navy or camel column is not only super slimming, but it’s an easy and interchangeable look to wear with just about any color faux fur.
Cool, Casual Styles
Denim has a way of adding a cool casualness to your look. A pair of denim mixed with a simple light-weight sweater or v-neck tee is an easy way to integrate a faux fur jacket into your daily wardrobe.
Another effortless faux fur look is to pair a chambray shirt with black denim (denim on denim) underneath a light colored faux fur vest or cropped coat. Complete your day look with a pair of neutral booties or loafers, and then change out your shoes for a pair of black pointy-toed pumps for your night out with the girls.
