Faux Fur For the Holidays!

In the past wearing fur has been a taboo, fashion risk only attempted by the most fierce and courageous fashionistas. It takes a bold lady to rock a head-to-toe fur coat or accessorize with some cold-weather, furry accessories. However, recent trends have forecasted greater acceptance of this cozy fashion, so if you want to try it out without ending up in the middle of some harsh protest, as pictured in the images below, then take note of the following fuzzy tips.

It all started with the introduction of the fur vest. Although this item was originally hard to find, it is now readily available and manufactured in an array of colors and fur types. Pair this piece with a pair of jeans and a flowy top underneath. This ensemble can be dressed down for a day out shopping, or dressed up for a night out on the town with the girls.

If you are not edgy enough to show off all that fur, then try a piece of clothing with just a tad bit of fur trimming. This sweater pictured below from the Urban Outfitters website is the perfect selection for the fur-phobic girl to get her faux fix. Maybe once you are comfortable with this outfit you can move on to bigger and better fur things.
