Faux fur is as popular for fall as plaid, ankle boots, and dark lipsticks. The most popular fur pieces are jackets, hats and we cannot forget about furry vests. If you love the look (and feel) of fur but want to try something different, there are some interesting pieces if you just look past the racks of shaggy coats. Note that I’m not talking about wearing a textured animal onesie.
Be inspired by these 11 unique ways to incorporate fur into your wardrobe:
1. City Chic Plus Size Faux Fur Front Cardigan ($89, Nordstrom)
Fur isn’t just for outerwear. If you are always cold, you will like this black cardigan with faux fur detail on the front.
2. Faux Fur Pelmet Mini Skirt ($30, River Island)
A faux fur mini skirt is definitely a unique way to add texture into your look. The short gray fur fabric is easier to pull off than a shaggier style.
3. Faux Fur Textured Clutch ($49.99, Mango)
You get to incorporate two furry pieces with this bag thanks to the furry keychain. The oversized tassel is another massive trend for Fall 2015. Try to resist stroking the clutch all day.
4. Paige Faux Fur Pom Pom Heels ($40, Boohoo)
These aren’t any old pair of black sandals. They are decorated with a furry pom-pom on the strap for a whimsical touch. Wear them with your favorite pair of printed tights and LBD.
5. Triple Pom Pom Elastic Hair Tie ($12, Topshop)
Forget about the hats and use a furry pom pom hair tie instead. This neon yellow one is much more interesting than your basic black elastic. Combine it with a contrasting color for even more interest.
6. Faux Fur Collar ($34.99, H&M)
You probably have at least one jacket with a fur-trimmed collar or hood but have you ever bought a separate faux fur collar? Layer this multicolored collar over any jacket or sweater. The black and white color palette will work with the majority of things you own.
7. Tight Ride Faux Fur Moto Jacket ($78, Nasty Gal)
A fur coat isn’t unexpected but a faux fur motorcycle jacket is. The regular leather fabric has been swapped for a soft black faux fur. It is still badass but it is a lot softer.
8. Contemporary Faux Fur Ribbed Poncho ($49.90, Forever 21)
Forget all the negative thoughts you have about ponchos because this doesn’t look like a dusty old blanket. The faux fur collar is removable but the look just wouldn’t be the same without it.
9. Simplicity Faux Fur Cuffs ($3.99, Amazon)
Anything can have fur trim thanks to these cuffs. Slip them over your gloves, sweatshirt, jacket, or even wear like a bracelet with bare arms.
10. Neon Rose Crop Top with Faux Fur Trim ($29, ASOS)
This is how you take your crop top from summer to fall. The faux fur trim at the hem and dark color palette make it look appropriate for the cooler weather. Try wearing it with a pair of flared pants.
11. UNIF Glitz Backpack ($74, Revolve Clothing)
If you carried a trendy backpack like this when you were in school, everyone would be giving you the treats in their lunch because they would think you are the coolest. The cute bag has a pale pink polyurethane exterior with a faux fur flap.
