AW14 Trend: Faux FurTuesday, 12 August 2014
One of the great things about Autumn/Winter is the amount of layering you can do. You have 5 new favourite items items in your wardrobe? Great! You can wear them all at once, due to how cold it can get in the UK. Layering different textures is going to be big this AW14 think leather, knits, shearling, fringing and of course fur. This seasons faux fur happens to come in a whole array of colours too.
The fur for the Autumn comes in all kinds of colours too, so don't think you have to stick to black. It's also great to see that the aforementioned fur is popping up on all kinds of different pieces too, not just the traditional coat.
I loved this Topshop Unique AW14 piece - the green and navy combination is something a little different and I think it would look great over a chunky knit and skinny jeans. You can see it in action on the catwalk in the picture above. While your at it you better buy some over the knee boots too, yes? As you can see it's all about the statement coat this Autumn/Winter as Topshop amongst others sent plenty of these down the catwalk. The one above has a bit of a Stevie Nicks on crack vibe, don't you think?
It's also comforting to see that budget retailers are dabbling in the trend too. I loved these two fun pieces from New Look. The heels are going to be a must for the party season - pair it with a slip style dress for a boudoir vibe or with jeans and a white t-shirt and let the shoes do the talking. This faux fur clutch is the perfect piece for adding some fun to your outfit, this will be the only accessory you need.
