Top Fur Accessories for this Winter

You only have to look at the catwalks to know that fur is an essential part of your wardrobe for 2014 and now many of these gorgeous creations have hit the high street and online shops.  All types and styles of fur are on trend this year, you only need to read any fashion blog or magazine to see the widespread attraction for fur coats, shoes, handbags, gillets, scarves and headwear – and that includes a combination of both real and faux.

Fur accessories are everywhere – from brightly colored fox headbands and hats, raccoon or rabbit scarves and beanies, or shaggy sheep fur handbags to the fun of faux fur in large blocks of bold or pastel colours seen on coats, scarves or any of the outfit styling accessories we all need to perfect our ‘look’.  Retro style classics and oversized real fur coats are also making a comeback in colours such as grey, black, brown or animal print.

Faux fur has been featured on almost everything this year so if you find a full length coat a little overwhelming, adding a little bit of fur to cuffs, collars or bags adds a touch of luxury to any item, as well as the comfort of a little bit of extra warmth – practical for the cold winter months as well as a wise wardrobe investment.

Real fur has been used by a lot of designers this year making it once again fashionable – despite the controversy over it’s use.  However, did you know that synthetic faux fur is non-biodegradable and therefore will end up in landfills?

Whether you choose to wear real or faux, fur is an intrinsic part of this year’s winter wardrobe and accessories such as scarves, hats, gloves or headbands liven up any outfit as well as making fantastic inexpensive Christmas presents.

Fox fur CoatFur is Fun this Season!

Now that autumn is upon us, it’s time for our thoughts to turn to winter wardrobes – coats, jackets and what accessories we are going to wear with them.

This seasons ‘must have’ is fur, and more of the top  fashion designers than ever have created gorgeous collections, (some using real fur and some faux) with styles and accessories that can be worn on a daily basis or for special occasions.  2014/2015 Fur fashion is fun, with mixed fabrics and lots of colour – bold checks and stripes creating wonderful effects and everything from handbags and shoes to dresses and jackets have incorporated some kind of fur embellishment.

Nothing adds a touch of glamour quite like the unparalleled richness of fur, and for a chic and sophisticated look, some of the vintage classics have been ‘reinvented’ by haute couture designers this year, with floor length fur coats, muffs and wraps  worthy of gracing the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor – all known for their love of fur.

Fur is versatile and adaptable and the sky really is the limit when it comes to how you either wear it, accessorize with it, or choose between real and faux. Although real fur is a tricky issue,  whether you love it or refuse to wear it, there’s no denying that it is making a comeback this season.
