F/W 2010 Trend: Faux Fur

Fur has always been known as winter’s greatest indulgence. It keeps you warm, it looks luscious, and sends oout the message that says, “I am very extravagant.”

But because we modern girls are also an animal-friendly set, we have no qualms about wearing fur as long as it’s faux.

Faux fur can make a big statement with just a little touch here and there. From a long, decadent coat to a little furry clutch purse, the eye is easily attracted to this attention-grabbing material.

But don’t make the mistake of taking this trend too far by pairing a fur coat with fur trimmed boots and a fuzzy beanie all together.

As long as you keep one key fur piece as the focus of the outfit, you are good to go.

The Michael Kors F/W 2010 runway show was loads full of inspiration on how to create the right balance of decadence and simplicity in your fur-filled look.

Michael Kors’ collection of fur pieces was an instant hit, with the fan favorite being a chic shredded fox fur skirt belted at the waist. Worn in natural color schemes of gray, black, and brown, Kors’ furs complemented the quiet minimalism of his sandy hued separates, so as to bring back down to earth the air of luxury that his furs cannot help but convey.

So follow in the footsteps of Kors, trade in the real for the faux, and get to work on adding a little bit of spice to your fall and winter outfits. Check out this amazing selection of faux fur pieces, below.
