With the threat of red paint splatter from the hands of activists, people have been keeping their furs locked away like a skeleton in the closet, even if it’s about as real as the fur on their childhood teddy bear.
But fear no more, it’s time to dig out those vests, jackets, and fuzzy accessories and embrace the comeback of fashionable fur.
Spotted on the runways of Gucci, Ferretti and Fendi, fur has been popping up in the wardrobes of celebrities like the Kardashians and Gigi Hadid. But we can’t all be Kim and Kylie, so here’s the need-to-know about wearing fur on campus without looking like Cruella Deville or breaking the bank.
If you want to make a statement, opt for a fur jacket that is oversized, boxy and cropped like
Victoria Beckham. Paired with black skinnies and a basic black tank, you can’t go wrong with this edgy, eye catching look. Stick to minimal accessories to make make sure all eyes are on
your stunning fur piece and get yours on the “ramen every night” budget at SohoGirl.
A fur vest is the perfect way to accent flowing skirts and flower patterns. The different textures and many layers give a 1970’s vibe that can be perfectly accented with a hat and bold lip.
For this look, cinching the belt at the waist gives the flowy outfit matched with an oversized vest a bit of shape, accentuating the waist. My favorite vest on a budget can be found at H&M and includes a narrow, imitation suede belt at the waist.
The hottest fur item right now is perfect for any minimalist: the furry pom pom keychain. The genius in this accessory is it matches any outfit, whether you’re running late to soccer practice or heading out to Sunday brunch.
My go to way to sport my cute poof ball is attaching it right on to my favorite purse just like Emma Roberts. It adds a pop of color to my neutral bag and the difference in texture between leather and fur is totally eye catching.
Perfect for those of us who can never find our keys in our mess of a purse, you can find this it–accessory at Wet Seal.
