Fash Trends - Faux Fur Coats

Trends come and go, but statement pieces like a gush worthy faux fur coat will always be a fash lovers best friend. From runways to ad campaigns the fashion industry seems bound and determine to put a smile on PETA's face this season and I'm more than ready to jump on the train. Thanks to fur queens Anna Wintour and Rachel Zoe, stores are filled with a slew of affordable options of winters fuzzy must-have. Growing up, I would prance around draped in my mothers fur coat with a tea cup in one hand and a microphone in the other. The search to find my own has been anything but easy, but I finally decided it was time to channel my inner Olsen and finally purchase this to-die-for INC faux fur coat, which went perfectly with my new pewter Steve Madden handbag and purple asymmetrical Free People top. When it came to accessorizing I layered on the cocktail rings and my favorite Pop of Chic Veronica Earrings which you can check out hereWhether the view outside your window consist of a field of cows or a street of bumper to bumper taxi's, there's always a way to fill the faux fur lover in you. Depending on your sense of style, it can be tricky to pull off a full-on faux fur without looking too over the top. If your style tends to fall on the safer side of fashion, be sure to keep the rest of your ensemble simple. You want the coat to be the statement so it's best to stick with neutral tones and simpler fabrics. For a more subtle approach to fur this winter opt for a jacket with fur accents like my blue Bar III coat here. You could also go for a luxurious fur scarf to instantly jazz up a look. When purchasing a fur coat study the textures, and color blends. If you like to live on the bolder side of fashion, the rules are simple... there are none. Go wild with your faux fur and relish in it's fabulousness. xo
