Style Bite // How to avoid faux fur fails

faux fur winter fashion trend 2014

It’s unstoppable. Statement faux fur is slowly swallowing normcore. Tactile texture has crept onto the morning commute, rainbow colours are encroaching on the high street and sporadic fluff pretty much owned fashion month.

If you want in on this season’s hot fuzz then Shrimps is your go-to ticket. Whistles do the most beautiful navy, lilac and pink fur coats. FINDS + Rejina Pyo do two-tone fabulousness and Neil Barratt made the best fuzzy bomber. At the very least, gather some loose change for  Asos‘s furry scarves that’ll work over your standard garms right now. Put simply, you won’t struggle to find something strokable.

Pulling it off with the panache of a pro though, requires sage advice and the acknowledgement of a few universal furry truths. Luckily, we’re here to help:

Get a lint roller immediately

Common sartorial sense dictates you will team your fluff with a crisp white shirt, maybe Cashmere, a grey marl tee and battered jeans. Without a roller, all your good work will be destroyed when you remove your outerwear and look like you rolled around in a cat basket.

Warning: flammable

Avoid open fires and toasting marshmallows. Come November, don’t make faux fur your default look if your hosting Bonfire Night drinks. Going up in flames will totally ruin your particular brand of nonchalant chic.

You will sweat on public transport

This is a given. Come rush hour, you’ll look hawt in all senses of the word.

Keep it modern

Observe the catwalk to ensure you look on point. Burberry AW14 is a good reference. Belt longer fur coats over feather-light dresses or throw a fuzzy stole over a single shoulder for contemporary cosiness.

Outside the shows, street style dictates that more is more; fur pom poms, tactile clutches and layers of bright monster fur is de rigueur.

Furry nice, no?
