The new season calls for new winter wear and this year, it’s all about the faux fur. Faux fur has been gaining more and more popularity over recent years with many major luxury fashion houses foregoing real fur for the animal-friendly and cruelty-free alternative. With the new technologies currently in use, faux fur now looks and feels just as luxurious as the real thing, while of course keeping you warm and protected from the cold outdoor elements. There really is no longer any reason that animals have to suffer for fur fashion. Conscious fashion is what’s in trend this winter season and in seasons to come.
When it comes to faux fur styles, there are so many fashionable options to choose from. Think bright colored teddy jackets, animal print coats and multicolored hoodies, to hats, puffers, scarves and bags – there are various faux fur garments and accessories that will elevate your winter wardrobe and make your everyday outfit look a lot more luxe. We’re sharing a few of the best ways you can add a little or a whole lot of faux fur to your winter OOTDs.
Faux Fur and Metallic Leather Combo
Straight off the Fall/Winter 2019 runways are jackets and coats in eye-catching and brightly colored metallic leather materials, with bold faux fur trim on the collars, and in some cases, along the cuffs as well. It’s a completely flamboyant combination that will surely turn heads.
Hooded Coat and Jacket
When the temperatures drop, we all want to stay warm, cozy and snuggly. The only thing better than staying comfy in hoodie, is when it’s made completely chic with a faux fur upgrade. Faux fur hooded jackets and coats are all the rage this season. They have a casual yet luxurious street style vibe. Wear it with jeans, dresses, boots or sneakers and you’ll look fashionable from day to night.
No animals were harmed to create these fashionable looks. It may be time to forego real animal fur but it’s certainly not the time to give up animal prints. Throw on a leopard, jaguar or zebra print coat in faux fur to easily upgrade any simple outfit. While wearing a leopard print coat with a chic all-black monotone look is simple enough, don’t be afraid to mix and match prints and patterns and to veer from the usual and opt for a uniquely colored coat, like a pink leopard print.
Coats, Jackets in Different Styles
So many options, so little time. This season, there’s no lack of choices when it comes to faux fur jackets and coats. There’s a plethora of available styles for every outfit and occasion.

There are so many ways to incorporate faux fur with your personal style.
Faux fur isn’t just for jackets and coats. Switch your usual knit beanie for a fun faux fur hat. We’re not just talking about a faux fur pompom on your hat.

Bags get the faux fur treatment this season, proving just how fun and versatile the material is. You can seriously wear it with anything and everything, including your bags. Add a dose of color to your winter outfit with a bright faux fur clutch or tote that will surely be a conversation starter.
