Yesterday my fashion-savvy friend Garrett brought up an controversial topic, fur. Let me quote her directly:
"I'm sorry but what is up with this faux fur coat ridiculousness? In no way are they original, classy, or even remotely flattering. They remind me if what a grandmother would wear to a winter funeral and embody, in a tangible form, everything that is wrong with cycles...But I digress..."
The picture above accompanied her rant.
Personally, I have always been one to wear both real fur and faux fur. Fur should always look luxurious, classy, and undeniably provocative. For me, fur represents the glamour of old Hollywood.
It does not matter if your fur is faux or real, it should never, I repeat never, look FRUMPY. Fur that is frumpy defeats the whole purpose of wearing fur in the first place. If you choose to wear fur that is faux, choose a piece that looks like it's real.
They make faux pieces nowadays that literally need the tag checked in order to determine the material. I have compiled a collection of fur-tastic looks below that include both faux and real fur. The ticket? You can't tell the difference and these looks are anything but dowdy.
So go ahead and wear your sumptuous fur with pride, nobody has to, or should know if it's faux or the real deal.
