If that wasn't a good enough clue then I don't know what is :P In case you didn't guess, the second trend of this series is fur, the faux type of course, as it is mahoosive this season as it was last. I'm sure this hasn't come as any real surprise as it was seen all over the AW14-15 runway shows of Balmain, Carolina Herrera, Elie Saab, Gucci, Saint Laurent and many, many more. Featured below are some of my favourite looks.
Faux fur is what I like to consider an autumn/winter necessity. Not only does it keep you warm and helps to ensure you look super stylish, but it can also be easily paired with absolutely anything that your wardrobe bestows. Yes, anything. What more could a girl possibly want?
Another great thing about this trend is that there is something for everyone. Those ladies who want to go fur crazy will find that their wish to do so has been granted as all of our favourite high-street stores have an endless selection of fur goodies. Oh, and those who are not so keen on overloading their wardrobe with faux fur, why not opt for one statement item such as a vintage-inspired shaggy fur coat or simply incorporate smaller sized accessories into your everyday outfit such as a stole, earmuffs, clutch or a pom-pom or tail keyring.
Up until recently many people would usually only associate fur with outerwear garments such as coats, jackets, scarves and hats. Oh, but how fashion has changed. More and more brands have upped their game as they've become more confident in experimenting and producing clothing that we once might have defined as being bizarre. For instance, you can now find fur on almost anything and everything whether it being a pair of sandal heels, pom-pom earrings or a cross-body bag. Furthermore, garments are no longer limited to being produced solely out of faux fur but are now being combined with many other fabrics. Eclectic edge, CHECK ✓
To be quite honest I think it should be mandatory for every single one of you ladies to have at least one faux fur coat hanging in your closet. For those who don't, what the blooming 'eck are you waiting for? I promise that it'll be one of your greatest investments as faux fur has popped up during the autumn/winter season for the past few years AND designers such as Fendi and Tommy Hilfiger have transitioned this trend into their SS15 collections. Need I say more? So how many of you will be joining me in looking furry and fabulous?
