If I Could, I Would Wear: Faux Fur

Edgy? Classy? Luxe? Faux fur has got you covered. Wearing such a bold statement piece can be intimidating, but choosing the right fur item can enhance any outfit. The greatest thing about the material is its flexibility. It shows up on coats, accessories, and more, which means that we have the flexibility in choosing how to incorporate it.

fur coatsThe easiest way to add some texture to your wardrobe is a coat with fur accents. Not only does the added material keep you warm, but it automatically makes your outfit look a little more dramatic. Because of fur’s inherently luxurious look, it balances well with a simple jeans and t-shirt (or turtleneck) combo, which requires minimal effort if you’re ever in a rush. Different types of fur coats offer different directions in style. The S13 Faux Fur Hooded Parka from Urban Outfitters ($213) can lend a more casual style, while the Native Youth Teddy Bear Faux Fur Coat from asos ($146) suggests a softer look. Obviously, these coats can get pretty expensive. A more cost effective way to add fur to your outfit is through accessories.

Fur gloves. Fur earrings. Fur scarves. Fur keychains. Fur chokers. Basically, fur can be added to any accessory item and look amazing. My two personal favorites are fur earrings and keychains. Earrings, like the fur faux tassel from

earringsAliExpress ($1.64), can add a pop of something extra. It can look striking paired with an updo to show off the fur’s color and texture. Keychains  do the same thing to a bag as earrings do to an outfit: add a splash of color. Pairing a simple black bag with different types of fur key chains can give a monotonous bag multiple looks. Adding the gray Posh One Faux Fur Keychain from Nasty Gal ($18) gives the bag a smarter spin, while the Michael Kors Fur Pom Pom Keychain from Macy’s ($28.50) lends a playful twist.

Finally, we come down to my all-time favorite fur item: shoes. Fur shoes don’t have to be fancy, although they can be. Rihanna’s Fenty Fur Slider from PUMA ($80) is a casual shoe that dresses up a casual outfit. High heels can also work with fur, the colors easily ranging from a darker color palette to more pastel shades, like Steve Madden’s Scarlett ($89.95).


Fur is versatile, which means that we can style it in many different ways. Have fun mixing and matching this season with this trending material!
