FAKING IT: Fake is fabulous when it comes to fur says Annmarie O’Connor.
With New York runway giants like Marc Jacobs, DKNY and Michael Michael Kors celebrating acrylic pelts, it’s a clear sign that faking it isn’t a crime. The stiff raised naps of yore have been swapped for softer, sleeker brethren thanks to swift advances in fabric technological. It’s luxurious and fashionably animal friendly.
Pair a faux fur gilet with a polo neck and skinny flares for ‘70s style snaps.
Balance the volume of a faux fur coat with skinny leather trousers for an urban edge.
Take a cue from the DKNY catwalks and wear your furry coat over a flirty skater skirt.
Texture shy? Why not give a nod to the trend with a simple stole, scarf or fur-trimmed gloves?
