2009 Winter Trends: Faux Fur
This season is all about the "Faux Fur" or synthetic fur. Othewise known as FAKE. I'm talking about vests and jackets long and short. It's all about faux, it's all about furry, and it's all about fabulous! This is great because you can rock a luxurious "Fur" jacket that adds class and style to every outfit, AND you can do it guilt-free. The days of killing cute innocent animals for the sake of fashion is so overdone, overrated, and SO over. Being conscious of fashion is the new trend. Even Victoria Beckham, who would never be caught dead in a fake, is very firm when it comes to the subject of fur. PETA couldn't even tell she wasn't wearing real fur until recently, and now they are praising her more than ever. That's how great these synthetic furs are now a days. It's a matter of how you incorporate it into your outfit and how you rock it. And Victoria Beckham knows how to rock the faux fur like no other.
And I'm not talking about just your typical fur coat. A long coat that has short hair straight fur is traditional and classic, but not as trendy. If you're trying to trend it up a little this winter, go for the shaggy faux fur coats. Try out a vest or a cropped jacket and pair it with leggings. Mix it up and have fun with it. It's great for the office to rock a short cropped faux fur jacket to top off any business attire, or for an evening out with your friends. Versatile, chic, stylish and ultra fabulous? Who could ask for more.
So, this winter, invest in some faux fur for yourself or give one as a gift. Either way, it is the gift that keeps on giving and/or a great staple in your closet. Here are some of my favorite faux fur coats.
