Putting moral concerns aside for a minute, there is something about wearing fur that expels particular wealth. This may be because we associate fur with costing big bucks, and as a result feel wealthy wearing it. However, bringing morals back into the picture, the killing of gorgeous animals for a jacket in the 21st century seems damn right barbaric. And the rest of society is jumping on this animal rights band wagon.
Consider Candice, the lovely Victoria’s Secret model, a fur mink is well within her price range, yet she ops for this faux fur imitation, who knew? Well we did, and she is the perfect example for the rise in the pro faux phenomenon! Animal furs seem to be a ‘Crueller Devil’ thing of the past, which are making animal rights activists (and animal lovers) particularly happy. Retail stores around the world are also opting for faux over fur, and receiving excellent results. This winter in particular, faux fur jackets are on the incline with not just models purchasing them, but as they’re cheap, even we mere mortals can look stunning in the cold!
Depending on your hair colour, there are a range of fauxs worth trying on this season. Whilst Candice pulls off this lighter shade, a darker brown fur would also work tremendously well with her blonde locks. Pairing it with some skinny jeans, black pumps and some gloves collaborates effortlessly. Whether it be vests, hats, jackets or scarfs, this winter in completely pro faux.
