Go ‘F’ yourself….Faking it 101

(I’m going to get spammed because of that title aren’t I)

I never in a million bazillion years thought I would be tempted to buy faux fur for my wardrobe. Not even after watching 3 seasons of The Rachel Zoe Project, and no one wears/styles fur better than her. However, never say never right? On account of these images my perception of fur has shifted….I die!

I want to be decked out in fur…

I want to cover my head in it, cloak it over my back, wrap it around my collar-bone and trim my favorite Rudsak jacket with it. Faux Fur.

How to wear the faux fur trend:

Minimal – Delicate pieces with light details; trimming or fur collars make for simple features that still make a statement.

Vest Style – Try pairing your vest with tighter, close-fitting shirts to balance its volume. As well loose, peasant-style tops can create a chill, bohemian look.

Accessorize – If you’re hesitant about leaping right into a fur vest or jacket try a dash of detail;  boots, hats, earmuffs, bolero … anything goes.

Faux Fur dont’s:

Overdue it – Covering yourself with head to fur just ain’t cool! Try to only invest in one piece and use it wisely. Disclaimer: my comment under the images was an exaggeration, don’t wear everything at the same time!

Nasty Patterns – Some patterns just aren’t for fur, In my opinion, leopard prints, zebra, or any shapes.

Shoddy Synthetic – Horrible texture and nappy looking furs are a NO, NO..pay attention to this!

Go ‘fur’ yourselves ladies…

    Bananas for the faux fur. Yes, of course needs to be subtle and tasteful, otherwise faux fur gone wrong!

    You are totally getting spammed for that title! It caught my attention, isn’t that the point? I’ve always had at least one fur piece in my wardrobe for those I want to feel like Kate Hudson from Almost Famous nights.
