With Christmas on its way and hopefully some snow to make it feel festive, what a better way to keep warm than in some Fur. When I say Fur, of course Faux Fur as we don’t condone animal cruelty. Today’s technology gives Faux Fur the qualities and authentic feel of real Fur, leaving us none the wiser. Remember animal cruelty is never fashionable nor fair. Even big designers like Stella McCartney who are reputable for there ethnical designs incorporate the “Fur Free Fur” attitude.
I’ve taken 3 different types of ‘Fur’ to show you guys how you can style it up this winter.
First up you have the “All Fur Coat”. This is trending right now in the high street market, where you can find a range of different colours and patterned coats that are fully Fur’ed out. This is sure to keep you warm for the winter! For this look we went for a 70s vibe to really appreciate the over sized coat style. The colour of the Fur matched with the creams and burgundy jumpsuit just screams out 70s, which is slowly making its way back in style. Don’t be afraid to mix things up when wearing an all fur coat. They are a statement piece, so you definitely have to wear them with confidence. You can either keep it real simple with block colours, using the coat as an accessory to really make the outfit pop, leaving the coat as the main focus or be a bit more bold and wear a pattern with a fur coat on top to create a vibe unique look.

For the second style we went more for a subtle Fur, keeping the look very chic and cosy. I’m obsessing over long coats this season, as lets face it England is freezinggggg and its only just getting started. I personally think there’s nothing better than a reversed fur coat to help stop you catching that flu. Reversed fur coats simply mean the fur is on the inside, making it one of the warmest thermal coats on the market. A touch of the fur is added on top of the hood to accent the coat, giving it the alaskan eskimo feel, just to tell us it really is meant for cold weather. Keeping the style sophisticated with simple black jeans and a striped shirt, finishing the look off with a pair of comfortable studded boots and black bag to match. This outfit to me really shows less is more sometimes and keeping is causal doesn’t mean you can’t keep it stylish. Key: Paying attention to small details really make an outfit.

Then Lastly we have the Fur scarf. Some people refer to this as a throw over but i like to call it an elegant scarf. Again, like the last two looks, this scarf comes in many different colours and thicknesses. I own another two of these one in black and a long pink one. You may be thinking, how does this little wrap keep you warm? Trust me, they may look small but they know how to keep the heat in around your neck. I would’t recommend wearing just the scarf with an outfit to keep warm as it definitely is more of an accessory. However, it can add to a look as a shoulder wrap, when styled with a dress for a night out. I believe it makes a great addition on top of leather jackets, as you can see in the photos this is how we styled it for this look. When worn around the neck it can transform a plain jacket, automatically making it look more fitting for winter. We paired the scarf with a simple leather jacket, skirt and knee high boots to create an everyday casj/dressy look. Some jackets come with the fur already attached around the collar or you can buy them separately so that you can mix and match the colour depending on what the outfit is.
