What's Trending with Tara: Faux Fur

Karsten Staiger

"You cannot fake chic but you can be chic and fake fur." ― Karl Lagerfeld

Faux is the new chic when it comes to fur and today, anyone can wear it and pull it off. Faux fur is one of the most fun trends to rock this winter. Not only is it cozy and super-stylish, but it's warm and guilt-free, too. And as much as I love a fabulous faux fur statement coat, the trend does not stop there! From fuzzy vests to poofy purses, luxe collars to plush hats, faux fur can instantly update your outfit with a posh, playful edge.

I never pass up the opportunity to channel my inner rock star or 1950's starlet, so this is a trend that speaks to me on so many levels—but none more so than outwear. So ditch your trusted old black puffer and your practical wool coat and glam up your outdoor look with a whimsical twist of a faux fur. If that style isn’t for you, try warming up your outfit with plush accessories, like those mentioned above or seen below. (For another take on outerwear, check out these Oversized Coats for Winter.)

However you choose to wear it, this is a trend you can definitely have some fun with this winter without spending a fortune. With legendary American furrier Dennis Basso supporting this movement, there are even more affordable options that don't sacrifice quality. Check out some of my favorite furry looks on Instagram to find your outfit inspiration!
