Bev contacted me last week and asked:
I just have a quick question regarding how to wear a faux-fur collar I purchased from NY&CO. Thy were on sale and I just couldn’t resist but I have no idea how to rock this particular accessory. Any suggestions?
Bev, the teal and purple fur collar are a fabulous find!! Now is the great time to find some great winter items on sale. The fur collars you purchase will look great with a dress if you have to attend a special occasion. The dress DOES NOT have to be black! The teal and purple fur would go well with a grey dress like the one below from Eloquii. If you’re located in a region that has experienced mild weather this winter, you can wear this collar as outerwear instead of a jacket.
If you love these Steve Madden pumps featured, check out 6pm, Amazon and Macys; they are prices less than on the Steve Madden website.
Normally I’d create 3-4 looks to post in response to a style question, but for this inquiry I think seeing a picture of someone wearing a fur collar would help in terms of ideas of how to wear them. So for my second suggestion, check out these looks from two DC area fashion bloggers and Who What Wear.
If you rather layer during the fall/winter season than wear a coat, style your fur collar like Jennifer from Comme Coco. Instead of wearing a coat, she pairs her fur over a blazer for a layered fall/winter look. I wouldn’t recommend wearing this look if it is 30 degrees (you need to bundle up in those temperatures!) but it’s great for mild weather. This look below assumes the ribbon is removable.
During extremely cold temperatures, you can wear the faux-fur collar over a wool coat like Alison from Wardrobe Oxygen or underneath the coat so it appears you have a faux-fur scarf. The faux-fur collar will add a nice pop of color to your outerwear look!
This third look combines the two looks above pairing a blazer with an open wool coat and faux-fur collar as the true statement piece. In all three of these looks, the fur collar is worn similar to wearing a scarf; it just adds a little more flair!
Bev, I hope these suggestions help you get an idea of how to wear your new faux-fur collars. If anyone is interested in purchasing the teal and purple collars from New York & CO, they are currently on clearance for $9.99. Click HERE.
