Faux fur can give a dramatic touch to any outfit, and its presence alone often turns heads. By wearing faux fur properly, you can look and feel luxurious while showing off your sense of style. As long as you follow simple fashion guidelines, you can look good in fur.
The days when wearing faux fur looked tacky and fake are long gone. Although cheap looking faux furs do exist, modern manufacturing techniques typically produce realistic, soft to the touch accessories that look and feel as beautiful as authentic pieces. When buying faux fur, look for thick, plush, high-quality material. Although they may cost a bit more, coats made out of high-quality materials will keep you warm and looking your best. Plus they last longer, which is especially important if you plan to wear your faux fur coat as your everyday jacket.
You don’t have to pull off a floor length faux fur jacket to take advantage of this ever-popular fashion trend. There are plenty of waist-length jackets and vests, as well as boots, gloves, scarves, and other faux fur accessories. The most important thing to look for is an item that you’re comfortable wearing. You can wear the most luxurious coat you’ve ever seen, but if you feel like an imposter, you’ll look like an imposter. A simple, elegant, faux fur coat in a neutral color is a great introduction to the style, and will look natural and sophisticated.
One of the best things about fur is that it looks good on women of all ages. Whether you’re 16 or 60, you can find a faux fur accessory that’s right for you. When shopping, look for a piece that can be dressed up and down. A versatile faux fur coat can be worn with either jeans or an evening gown and still look good. You can also wear faux fur with belts, layers or other non-fur accessories. The key is to not to overdo it by wearing too many pieces of fur. Wearing a fur jacket with a fur accented handbag, and fur-lined boots and gloves would probably look silly. Instead, wear your faux fur jacket with a single fur accessory. Also, avoid too many different patterns, colors, or textures. Too many patterns or colors will clash and look messy. Too many different textures, like fur, velvet, sequence, and lace will also look uninviting. Additionally, faux fur is heavy, so avoid wearing other thick materials underneath, or you could end up looking chunky or puffy. The most important thing to remember when wearing fur is to select a piece that accentuates, rather than outshines your beauty. You want people to admire you, not just your wardrobe.
