While fur has long been used as a stylish solution for winter dressing, the ethical and environmental impact of using real fur really isn’t a warming truth. Fortunately, the developments in faux fur have created innovative new materials that look just as good as the real thing but without any cruelty involved.
Searching for faux fur outfit ideas? Read on to discover our top ethical looks for this season.
Why the faux fur fashion trend isn’t going away
While faux fur has always been a brilliant alternative to animal products, the industry has had a less than glowing reputation for using environmentally friendly practices in the past. At Unreal Fur, we’re proud of the contributions we’ve made to improve the sustainability of faux fur. By using recycled fibers and new techniques, we’re proving that faux fur has a green future that can really challenge the use of real fur in the fashion industry.
How to wear a black faux fur jacket
If you’re dipping your toe in the world of faux fur outfits for the first time, you can’t go wrong with classic black. A tonal jacket in faux fur is bold and textural but allows for versatile styling with its neutral shade. For daytime wear, be chic in all black with simple pants, boots, and a fitted black top. When the sunsets we love to layer a black faux fur jacket with long boots and a flowing long sleeve dress or top for a Stevie Nicks vibe that’s dripping with 70s glam.
Styling a faux fur vest
A faux fur vest is a perfect option for layering and great if you live in a region where winter days get chilly, but not downright Arctic. To keep your outfit feeling fresh and modern, don’t be afraid to pair a lush mocha-toned vest with athleisure classic pieces like leggings, your favorite sweatshirt, and streetwear-inspired sneakers. Keep things simple with comfy jeans and a t-shirt for a sunny winter day brunch. Or layer one over a turtleneck with flare trousers and boots for a glamorous apré ski look that feels like you’re fresh off the slopes.
Get the ultimate winter faux fur outfit with a luxe coat
Of course, we’ve saved the best for last. If you want to feel super warm and cocooned in the most luxe and cozy material, you just can’t pass up a classic fur coat. Our faux fur coats offer the ultimate in luxury European dressing but are totally effortless.
Choose a classic block hue for a timeless Olsen twin inspired look, embrace a faux animal print moment for a retro investment piece, or get into the spirit of the holiday season with the stardust coat, which has beautiful metallic fibers woven through its pile to create a sparkly faux fur outfit that’s unforgettable.
No matter what you choose, you’ll find the perfect winter piece from Unreal Fur’s collection of faux fur statement pieces.
