Being fake is the hottest trend this season.
Faux Fur, the fabric that was once considered too “costumey” now makes a chic sustainable statement and even the big kids on the Fashion block want to play.
Last month fashion powerhouse Gucci announced that they will be going fur free starting with their Spring 2018 Collection. They will be joining the ranks of other key designers such as Stella McCartney, Giorgio Armani, Hugo Boss, and Net-A-Porter, who have all gone fur free and work exclusively with faux fur when adding fur looks to their collections.
The Faux fur trend made a major showing across all the Fall 2017 collections is almost every form. Faux Fur flew on the runway at Miu Miu who presented fluffy, fun oversize furry coats and coat collars, punctuated by fur rain hats and bubble newsboy caps and flat fur boots in a range of kitchy colors while MSGM added sport racing inspired stripes to bold colorful faux fur jackets and Tadshi Shoji took a ladylike approach by pairing detachable fluffy pink fur collars with beautiful brocade jackets.
Whether it be a jacket trimmed in fur de faux, a full-on shaggy muppet inspired coat or an easy to add in faux fur scarf, a faux fur topper is one of the quickest ways to add insta-glam and street-style credentials to your look.
Stylists Tip: a faux fur collar or scarf with a pop of color can transform the look of a jacket. Add one in under the collar of a blazer that needs a little boost or to add depth to a look that feels a bit too minimal. Pair with a range of fabrics: tweeds, velvets, leathers and even denim looks more glam with a fluffy faux fur add on.

I love fake fur. I could never do real fur for my own reasons, but I just love the softness of these items when I wear them.
