Fall/Winter Trends 2016/17 - Statement Fur

I love warm weather, but there is the one thing that makes colder temperatures so much more bearable - (fake) Fur

For this season the motto is the bolder the (fake) Fur the better.

I know it can be intimidating, but I put together a few looks to give you some ideas on how to rock a (fake) Fur this Fall /Winter.

70s Vibes 

For the first look, I chose a hip length black shearling jacket. This is a great piece to get started with the (fake) Fur trend. It is a standout piece, but yet in a colour, that doesn't scream "look at me" right away.

I combined it with a maxi dress, some suede boots, and a fedora hat to create a modern bohemian vibe.

Wild Thing

I love this leopard faux fur coat so much I think I am going to buy it myself. Anyways, because I wanted the coat to be the main focus of this look, I went all black for the rest of the look. To maintain the edgier vibe of the coat, I combined a leather-look like jeans and boots with buckles.


 Wrap Dress       Shearling Coat       Earrings       Suede Sandals       Clutch

With this outfit, I wanted to show you that a bold Fur can look very elegant and sophisticated. To further enhance that vibe, I combined a dress in the same colour range and added golden accessories to the ensemble.

Tip: Monochrome looks are always an easy way to achieve a sophisticated and elegant look.


I hope I could give you some outfit inspiration, until then...

    Hi shadesofK,

    in your last look, you showed a lot of green. I recognized that this bottle green is all around in the shops. Is this the it-colour for the winter? I like this colour a lot, but I'm not sure, I can wear it, because my skin colour has an olive-shade in it... do you think I could still wear this colour?

    Hi Kayla,

    thanks so much for your feedback.
    To answer your question, yes, jewel tones are a major trend for fall/winter 2016/17.
    You can definitely wear it. Warm green tones work great with your skin tone. Khaki green would also look amazing on you.

    I hope I could help. Xo Karen
