Many of us have eyed faux fur jackets worn by celebrities and bloggers as seen on our social media feeds. Or we’ve admired unbelievably-chic faux fur jackets in stores, tried it on, only to avoid buying it. Why? Because we fear that it might be a tad too much. Wearing faux fur can be tricky. More often than not, it can be difficult to maintain a balance and keep the occasion in mind. That said, if done right, faux fur can add a tasteful dimension to your ensemble. If you’re wearing faux fur for the first time, the safest bet is to make it the standout piece of your outfit. Wondering how to do that? Here are a few styling suggestions from our team that will make you want to rush back to the store and shop that faux fur jacket that you regret not picking up.
All Things Minimal
Think 50s with an old Hollywood glamour, maybe Dior’s new look when women wore dresses like we wear jeans… and think of all the elegance that era oozed. If you’re looking for something to wear to a fancy soiree on a chilly evening, this look will turn heads as you walk by. Wear a minimalistic dress with a cinched waist, hoop earrings, your favourite pair of pumps, an embossed bag, and a black faux fur coat. Neatly tie your hair in a bun to complete your LOTD. Make sure your outfit is well-tailored as this will help you stand out.
If you have to go to an event that is casual yet dressy, we suggest you wear a pair of checked pants with a graphic t-shirt. Sport a crossbody bag or a fanny pack, sneakers and a faux fur jacket. Be a little experimental and don’t shy away from wearing bold colours, just make sure that the outfit is balanced out.
Are you that rebellious girl on the block? If bold is your thing, then pair a silk camisole with a mini skirt and stockings. Wear an animal print faux fur coat over it. Go for patent boots and we suggest kohl-lined eyes as the makeup memo.
