You may have noticed that things got pretty furry on this season’s runways.
Designers from Jason Wu and Michael Kors to Creatures of the Wind and Cushnie et Ochs went full on Game of Thrones by draping models in over-sized luxe statement making fur stoles. These aren’t the fur stoles your grandmother wore, they are packed with bold color, interesting patterns and texture.
Whether faux or au natural, paired with evening-wear, edgy looks or ladylike luxury fur stoles are a seasonal must!
So how do you translate that runway cool vibe to your closet?
Believe it or not fur stoles are one of the most wearable runway trends this season!
I myself am not a fan of real fur and all the ethical conundrums that come with it so I will be making my Winter is Coming statement in faux.
This Ah-mazing midnight blue faux fur stole entered my life during a shopping trip with a client at Nordstrom. I spotted it in the window and then convinced several employees and the entire visuals team to begin a 2 hour quest to locate it for me! Three days later it arrived at my door!
It is EVERYTHING! The color…OMGorgeous!
Wearing a fur stole or fur scarf is pretty simple once you get the hang of it. I prefer to pair with a clean minimalist look and let the stole make the statement.
I began with a sleek all black look and put together a quick guide for you of three chic and easy ways to wear a faux fur stole/scarf this season.
ONE: Classic Drape.
This style looks best when paired with a collared jacket. The faux fur fits snugly underneath the collar and the stole adds some extra oomph to a minimalist silhouette. You can drape around the neck and over both shoulders like I have done or sling it over a single shoulder.
TWO: Pinned to the side.
Sometimes you don’t need a jacket but want to add a little Silver Screen glamour to your look. Drape your stole around the back of your neck with one side being slightly longer than the other. Next take the short side and loosely drape it across your chest until it touches the longer side. Use a brooch to secure it in place right above the chest. This is a great way to show off all those vintage brooches that are gathering dust in your jewelry box!
THREE: With a Belt
Street-stylers have been going gaga over this styling technique. The second this look debuted on Jason Wu’s Fall runway social media fell in love.
Take the middle of the stole and place it over one shoulder, then offset the ends a bit so that the front side is a bit shorter than the back. Now take the two open ends and pull them across your body so that the stole is basically a furry sash. Take a thin belt and place it a waist level over the fur ends and tighten it up.
I like the look of the front fur on top of the back piece but you can play with it and see what works best for you.
