“You cannot fake chic, but you can be chic in fake fur.” – Karl Lagerfeld
Fur has always been a status symbol, worn by the richest and mightiest, but these days when both animal rights and economy are pushing fur aside and replacing it with faux fur, it has become available to us mortals, too. If you want to rock the style of Beyoncé, Rihanna, Sienna Miller and Olivia Palermo, you simply must add some furry love to your wardrobe. However, styling fur can be a bit daunting, it can go two ways: either it is perfect or overwhelming. Here are some tips that will help you avoid the latter option.

Start Small
Wearing fur requires confidence and attitude. If you don’t feel like you can pull off a long fur coat just yet, try your luck with stoles and lapels. Take your boring woolen coat and pin a fur lapel to its collar, and you will instantly add some drama to your outfit. You can also throw a faux fur stole over your shoulders. Leave it like that or enhance your figure by belting it over your suit. Fur scarves are great for adding a preppy vibe to your outfit. It doesn’t matter which of these styles you prefer, different furs will create entirely different outfits to match your mood and the occasion.
Glam Rock Girl!

You know what we are talking about? Leather pants, band tees, ankle boots, faux leather, chunky metallic jewelry, and of course, faux fur jackets. This look is all about rock ‘n’ roll, so don’t ruin it with elegant trousers and blouses. Luckily, today there are so many available womens tops in that spunky style you’re aiming for, and ripped jeans have never been a problem. All you need to do is find a great jacket.

Or Classy Classic Lady…
If there is one thing that made the world fall in love with fur, that is the way it can elevate an already elegant outfit. So, why not wear it in this good old-fashioned way? You may have the best going-out look ever, but if you top it with a black puffer coat, you have basically ruined it. But remove the puffer coat from the equation and replace it with an elegant faux fur coat, and that is a whole different story.
Casually Luxurious

If you want a bit more casual look, you can opt for a long faux fur vest. It gives a youthful sense to your outfit, but it still keeps you on the top of your lux game. If you choose a long vest, layer it over a form-fitting sweater and combine it with skinny jeans and boots. You can also wear a short vest over a jacket.

An Explosion of Color
Great thing about faux fur is that you can wear it in any color. Take your cue from Sasha Obama, who wore a navy faux fur coat at the 94th Annual National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony, or copy Rihanna’s bubblegum pink faux fur stole. The possibilities are limitless.
Now that you know everything you need to know about faux fur, it’s time to try this style out. Just remember to wear your best “I rock!” attitude!
