Paired up with your every day clothing, a fur coat or jacket totally changes the picture. No matter what era we talk about, fur clothing has always been in fashion. Most of us would agree on abandoning animal fur in all forms, but what's not to like about faux fur clothing? Apart from being totally stylish, faux fur is immensely warm. Mix and match your favorite faux fur vest or jacket with your regular clothes and stay warm. Here's a bunch of ideas on how you can wear faux fur with your regular wardrobe.
1. Shopping for faux fur
An important thing to remember before your pick a faux fur is that the fur that feels the best looks the best. Don't pick a rug with a fur like design; instead, opt for the one which is soft and keeps you warm. Go for a fox shade, chocolate brown or either opt for black. Choosing color depends upon how you plan to wear it. Pick pure white only if it is for special occasions and you can preserve its grace.
2. Start with a faux fur vest
A faux fur vest is the easiest to carry with all kinds of clothing. It looks amazing with basic denims and shirts. For a complete outfit, pair your faux fur vest with your regular jeans, a long sleeves shirt, your favorite leggings and a pair of boots. When you go out on a vacation, do not forget to pack your fur vest with you as it is something that will suit your dress at a cocktail and also with denims in a snowball fight.
3. Think before you go full length
I don't mean that a full length fur is unacceptable, but you should think about it. Unless you would like to wear it in one or two over rated occasions with a designer dress and then save it for your kids, I would suggest against it.
4. Wrap yourself in a faux fur coat or jacket
Instead of your regular coat, try on a faux fur coat as it is much warmer and more stylish. For a coat or jacket, opt for a winter brownish shade and avoid black that shines. A faux fur jacket looks subtle and calm and comes with a promise to keep you warm without the sun.
5. Animal prints
While you wish to buy a faux fur coat with animal print, make sure you keep it subtle. Firstly, it should not be too heavy or too long. Secondly, make sure the print is not overdone or magnified. Pick the one which suits you the best in the most decent way. My personal suggestion will be to go for fox print rather than leopard stripes, it easily matches with anything you wear. Try and keep it simple.
6. Experiment with accessories
Well, faux fur is not just limited to clothing. You can experiment the use of faux fur in your everyday accessories and styling. Look for handbags and purses with animal prints and hint of fur coating. You can also opt for woolen jackets or sweaters which have faux fur coating on collars and sleeves. When you search the market, you will find a lot of everyday accessories with faux fur including gloves, handbags, footwear, etc. though not very common faux fur sleeves and collars are also an option to consider. Apart from styling, a faux fur hat can be of great use on a very chilly morning.
7. Faux fur is subtle not flashy
Faux fur clothing is basically not something that outshines you but is something that can make you stand apart from the crowd. An important tip is never to overdo with styling. When you are already wearing a faux fur coat, vest or jacket, avoid matching it with a fur handbag or footwear. Even while choosing colors, designs and prints, have a more simple approach and opt for solid colors and less magnified prints.
8. For those who want to keep it minimum
If you are not among faux fur enthusiasts and just want to keep it subtle, you should look for a dark solid color faux fur scarf to wrap around your neck. You can also opt for fur socks and boots with faux fur collars. It is totally in fashion and you should not hesitate to try it one way or the other.
