Fashion for women over 50: How to wear faux fur this season

I am not quick to jump on trends, darlings. You know when it comes to fashion for women over 50 I love the classics and I love when you can dip into your old favorites and re-wear them. That’s what makes this faux fur trend so fabulous. Much like velvet which we talked about a few months ago, faux fur is making its way back into people’s wardrobes for the winter. Faux fur adds texture to an ensemble and can be dressed up or down. Throw away the idea that you can only pair faux fur pieces with fancy clothes and jackets. Pairing faux fur with your favorite pair of jeans is a very chic look. With that being said, faux fur accents can really dress up a coat.  And now there are even faux fur home accents which brings a little winter magic right into your home (or all year round, who is judging?).

Three tips for wearing faux fur this season

  • Pop of color: You know me darlings I am really fond of neutral colors, but it’s hard to resist a lot of the colored faux fur options out there. A light pink would be a nice way to mix up the classic black and whites of the holidays.
  • Long or short works: If it’s a vest or jacket a cropped style is just as popular as a more natural length that would hit just past your hip.
  • A lot or a little also works: There is no right amount of faux fur to jump on this trend with. Faux fur as the pompom of your winter beanie is as on-trend as a completely fur headband. Wear what makes you feel good and what makes you comfortable.
