Style Guide: Four Ways to Wear Faux Fur

By  March 18, 2013

Year after year, March embodies that notoriously awkward in-between season. So, what’s a girl to wear on her way out the door?

Fortunately, there’s a solution: Layering. When the temps aren’t quite warm enough to step out in a sundress but they no longer call for a cute winter coat, I always reach for my faux fur accents. ?Here’s a few of my favorite styles to inspire you with ways to incorporate faux fur into your look.


A vest that hits at the hip is always a do. Layer over a silk blouse and opt for a wide-leg bottom to balance out the volume on top.


A seemingly simple stole is the perfect accent piece to spice up a mostly-black ensemble. Streamline the look with dark, opaque tights, and add a neon jacket for a pop of color.


Play with texture (and keep cozy) by layering a faux fur vest over a chunky knit sweater and cotton tee. Keep the base simple by sticking to neutral tones.


Achieve extra warmth for an office-appropriate look by adding a fitted blazer into the mix.
