Faux fur has been a special treat to fashion for many years now. But! It’s finally becoming a more popular option and style. You can literally see faux fur everywhere these days, it’s quite fashionably hot or shall I say haute! Faux fur used to be seen as a less desirable option years ago, and was mainly worn by vegans. With today’s day and age of knowledge and new technology, many people are saying buh-bye to real fur and going f-a-u-x!
I personally am ecstatic about this and have loved so many brands that use faux fur instead of real. With so much great technology and advances in creating these synthetics, nowadays you can barely tell a part a faux from a real fur. That’s why many brands (with still some supporting real fur, shame) have made the switch over.
Prada back in 2007 was one of the firsts to take a charge towards the synthetic movement. Ms. Prada herself claimed she was ‘bored’ with real fur and in her 2007 Fall/Winter collection she put tons of faux fur in there. Many people couldn’t even tell the difference! PETA Europe was so excited over this that they sent Miuccia Prada a bouquet of roses. Anna Sui has been fully embracing the faux fur look for a couple of years now. She has some amazing pieces with her unique twists to all things faux. Check out her Fall Winter collections, they’re gorgeous.
Chanel also supports the faux fur movement! Master of haute couture, Karl Lagerfeld said “You cannot fake chic, but you can be chic and fake fur” Go Karl! In 2010 he surprised all his guests at his Ice Wonderland show in Paris with faux fur on everything! From coats, to separates, bags, boots, you name it. See all the gorgeous pieces from the collection here.
I’ve linked some of my favorite brands and their faux fur coats and vests that are super popular this Fall & Winter!
These two beauties are from Free People and they have AMAZING VEGAN coats and jackets!! They have some great options for under $200, so you don’t have to go broke trying to look cute.
H&M also has some amazing coat options, whether it’s a long, cropped, feathery, puffy, furry coat you’re looking for. I personally love the feathery and printed styles!
Oh and ladies, don’t forget your faux fur vests! I’ve linked these cozy and stylish ones from Nordstrom and some are even on sale!! Get it girl. Great as a gift for loved ones, or yourself duh.
I want to buy all colors, and prints!! Let me know what you guys think, are you into faux fur? And if so, fur coats or vests? I prefer coats, they suit me better than a vest. Happy Saturday loves!
