There are few things more glamorous and luxurious than fur. Wrapping up warm in a big fur coat and slipping on a fur hat can make you feel like a Russian Princess on her way to the ballet to sip champagne and start her very own Anna Karenina style love affair. Or perhaps like an Olsen twin clutching an oversized coffee and keeping out the chill between shows at Paris Fashion Week. At the other end of the spectrum, get it wrong and risk edging into Pimpsville- not a good look. Join the Mallzee Style Team as we round up the hottest Winter fur looks and leave the badass pimpin’ to those who know best…
If it’s a statement coat you’re after, then ASOS have got you covered. This monochromatic striped faux fur number packs a serious sartorial punch; definitely not one for the faint-hearted. Wear over simple, casual outfits for daytime glamour then team with cute mini shift dresses and winged eyeliner for a modern take on a swinging Sixties night time vibe.
Not ready to commit to a full fur coat just yet? Dip your toes into the trend with a fur gilet. Easy to throw on over leather jackets and boyfriend blazers, you get the cosiness and luxurious vibe of fur without having to go all out. Gilets are the perfect transitional piece for when the weather finally starts to warm up again, too. This one from ASOS has an awesome dip-dye effect that we absolutely love!
For an even subtler way to work the fur trend, try this amazing rabbit fur front vest from Selects over at Glassworks. Super luxurious and super chic, this will elevate any outfit to the next level. Dreamy.
Don’t want to just be rocking fur when you’re out and about? There are loads of jumpers with faux fur detailing on them, so you can feel just as snug and luxurious when you’re curled up on the sofa watching X-factor. This ASOS sweatshirt means you can work the sportswear trend and the fur trend in one. Grr…
For just a touch of furry warmth, get your paws on these fabulous earmuffs from Missguided. We love the cuteness of the pink pair, but they do come in an equally fabulous grey colour for increased wearability.
When dressing this Winter, don’t forget- a fur stole should be in everyone’s wardrobe. Throw on top of a classic blazer or last year’s coat for an instant outfit upgrade, not to mention the added warmth benefits. We love Miss Selfridge’s grey and black patchwork offering; it’s got just the right amount of boho vibes going on. Gimme.
Finally, if you want to add a luxurious touch to your evening ensembles, try a fur clutch. This beaut from River Island in soft white fur will give your outfit a hit of opulence, and- added bonus: it’ll keep your hands warm, too!
