How do you faux fur?

Photobucket

With so many faux fur options out there, how do you know which one is right for you?! I am a big fan a faux fur. I was really excited when I saw how much of it was out this season, but I didn't know what to buy. I initially wanted a vest, but how do you wear it? I mean I know how you would style it, but do you take it off when you get to your destination? Is it part of our outfit and then you're hot all day/night? I then realized if I had to keep it on did I really want the bulk of a fur vest on me all day?! Not really!!
So I want a faux fur coat then. A super cute one! But not one that will break the bank. After all is faux fur, not real fur so it shouldn't be so expensive...in theory of course.
Well, I found one! And a got a really great deal! I can't wait for my first post baby date night with the hubby so I can wear it!! Pictures will of course be posted when I do!!

On a different note, does anyone else think that fur boot is super cute in the lower right hand corner? I'm in love, but don't know why or when I would wear it! ;)

How about you guys? How do you faux fur?

Love the faux fur boots!! Get them!! They are awesome! Can't wait to see the pic of you in your jacket! I am sure it will be super cute!
I love faux fur! I have several vests and I wear them as part of my outfit. I wear something light weight underneath so I don't get too hot!!

I don't have too many faux fur pieces in my closet but after reading this I might become a little more adventurous this winter in Milwaukee! I love the lace up boots on top with the fur on the ankle! So cute!!

I'm so with you on this one, faux fur is just amazing! I REALLY REALLY want a faur fur cheetah print coat, i can so imagine just throwing it over a pair of jeans and a slouchy white jumper and being ready to go! But i need something cheap too, as i'm saving up for a new camera, so most shops that are selling what i want are out of the questions, becuase they are just way too expensive. What coat did you manage to get though? :)

I love faux fur! I just bought a vest for this season. I think it is cute for everyday wear with a plain t-shirt and skinny jeans. I also have a pair of fur booties that I love! Mine are black and I wear them all the time with dresses! You should get those cute booties!

I am not a big fur fan, faux or real. Can't quite get past the bulk it gives and the softness is on the OUTSIDE instead of the inside. My practical brain just can't quite wrap itself around that idea... I'd love to see what you buy, though!

Yes - those boots are fabulous - I think you need them ;)

I have a serious addiction to faux fur - it makes every outfit more glam!

I've recently come to terms with the fact that I do like the look of faux fur. The jacket in the middle caught my eye, probably because it's asymmetrical and I'm a little off :oD

I remember buying a faux fur gilet a few years back and although I loved it, my man laughed when I wore it so I returned it - didn't want the drama from him every time it surfaced. However I've regretted it ever since, and would buy the same in a heartbeat. Obviously it's not a coat but at least a gilet you could wear for a lot longer and layer it too. Good luck!

Faux fur is a MUST have for the winter season... especially up here in the Midwest!! :-)

I love faux fur... I have 2 shrugs and I would love to get a pair of ear mufflers for this winter! Great picks, that white and black one is just gorgeous :)

Love, M

Love faux fur...it is so warm and soft (a huge necessity when you live in Wisconsin :)). My fav faux fur piece is a pink fur scarf...obnoxiously feminine and oh, so warm!

i have a fur vest, and in the la "winter" i wear it with a flannel under it or a boho top. i keep it on, but have to roll up my long sleeves! in the spring and fall, i wear it with tanks. it's definitely cooler that way :)

i am in love w/the black and white fur coat. gorge!

I love faux fur collars! <3

Natasha said...

I love all these fur items! There's something instantly chic about faux fur pieces...they add instant glamour to an outfit. I have a faux fur vest, and add ons for my boots, but I think I really want a jacket now also!

On a recent dig through my parents' attic (they have SO MUCH STUFF!) I found this adorable fur hat that was my grandmother's, in amazing condition (though it's definitely real fur, which I don't love). I have yet to muster the courage to rock it. Lisa, next time I stop by I'll bring it and you can give me your honest opinion!

I've been looking for a great faux coat, no luck yet but was contemplating the Rachel Zoe one's on QVC for a while

I can only do faux fur in small amounts! I find it overwhelms me, so I currently only have a faux fur stole! Oh, and I guess lining the hood of my parka! I like it on coat collars, and I'm liking the foldover fur booties on the top right you've posted here! Small doses for me! But it looks very lux & glam on others!
