Fashion TREND ALERT: Faux Fur

Faux fur is known for returning every winter. This year we are ditching the realistic animal vibes and making it loud and clear that our fur is fake with unnatural coloring. Phillip Plein showcased a three-toned faux fur jacket featuring the colors violet, mustard, and white, while Michael Kors displayed an all mustard mid-length coat.  Faux fur boots and scarves were also seen strutting their stuff down the runway. Emporio Armani had a luscious cobalt blue and black faux fur combination used as a scarf, and Phillip Plein featured a faux fur bag & matching booties. Whether your faux fur is a second layer or a statement accessory, you’re certain to stay warm and stylish.

Ready to Wear - 2019

I personally, love faux fur. I admire how it instantly brings a new level of sophistication as well as texture to just about any ensemble I create. For instance, an oversized faux fur coat, not only adds warmth to your look, but brings a “model-off-duty” vibe. Try pairing an over-sized faux fur jacket with fitted joggers and ankle booties or layer it over a fitted body con dress and sneakers. Either way you will be looking effortlessly fly. Create an elevated look, and try out a faux fur russian inspired hat. These are my absolute favorite! This hat, can be paired with a crisp button-up and jeans or a feminine dress. Regardless this style of hat will immediately bring a stylish flare to your work wear attire. The final look I always encourage others to try, is the classic faux fur vest. This look is probably the easiest to pull off, for it can layer literally over anything; jeans and a tee, a feminine dress, joggers and a cropped hoodie. No matter the look you are going for, a faux fur vest will top it off perfectly this cold-winter season. Don’t have any faux fur items in your closet yet? Don’t fret, I have done the shopping for you and found Minnesota brands that are owned and run by women, that have the fabulous faux fur items, making this trend easy for you to try!
