Fur is THE eternal winter trend, coming back every year to keep you warm and chic. This year is no exception, and it is coming back even stronger with the mob wife trend. To exude opulence, sophistication and extravagance, fur is the solution! Or more exactly, faux-fur, for a more ethical and budget-friendly option. Faux-fur isn't just a fashion statement; it's both a commitment to ethics, sustainability and elegance. There are so many good quality faux-furs that will look just as real and sophisticated, but more sustainable, and cruelty-free. Offering endless choices –in colors, length, texture, etc–you will find one suitable for every situation. From a casual-chic daytime look, to a fancy-cocktail style, it has the power to be styled with almost just everything. Here are a few things to keep in mind, to embrace the mindful chicness of (faux-)fur at its best!

Experimenting with colors and patterns 

While the default option is dwelling towards natural tones like black, brown or beige, one of the good things with faux-fur is that everything is possible. So why not make it fun? To start soft, you can opt for animal patterns, such as leopard. They will still look natural (yet aren’t), but a bit more unique and eye-catching! Perfect for a glamorous style, such furs will be the centerpiece around which to build chic eccentric outfits.

Otherwise, if you’re feeling bold enough, confidently embrace the fakeness of faux-fur and try neon colors. A bright blue, pink or red will add a bit of spice to your wardrobe, giving it an edgy rock-chic twist! By playing with vibrant tones and bold patterns, you will be able to invent a myriad of looks, alternating between styles.

But don’t worry, if you don’t feel like going for something extravagant, the neutral colors are still great options for a classy/classic look. In that case, you might want to experiment with length or texture instead.

Wear it extra!

If there is one word that suits the fur trend it is ‘extra’. Wearing a fur coat will make you look extra, and it works even better when you go further, with extra-long or extra-fluffy ones. When it was still acceptable to wear real fur, the more fur you needed for a piece, the more it would become a sign of expensiveness and sophistication –because it meant you could afford it.  We still get that impression with faux-fur: the bigger the coat, the more pricey and chic it looks. For the classic luxurious option, opt for long fur-coats. On the contrary, for a more urban alternative, go for extra-fluffy short fur-coats. But  whether you choose to go long or fluffy, just pick a coat that doesn’t lack (faux-) fur! It will make you look classier, and warmer at the same time!

Accessorizing with fur:

I’ve only been talking about faux-fur coats until now, but there are so many other ways to wear fur. One of my favorite tricks if you want to surf on the trend more subtly is through accessories! Faux-fur accessories, such as scarves, hats, boots, bags, earmuffs or gloves, are signature pieces that can effortlessly elevate any outfit with a touch of warmth and glamor. They provide a versatile option for incorporating fur into your wardrobe without committing to a full coat, for a Scandinavian winter chic aesthetic. Fur bags especially are trending this season, and they will be the highlight of any classic outfits.
