Five Ways to Wear Faux Fur

Faux fur was one of the big winter trends we spotted on the catwalks at London Fashion Week last September and we’re happy to see it’s still on trend for 2016. You don’t have to be a supermodel like Jourdan Dunn or a reality star like Sam Faiers to look fantastic in it, however. At George we’ve got some really wearable and practical pieces. Here’s how everyone can wear soft, snuggly faux fur this season:

In the Evening

Keeping warm in an evening dress is one of the biggest clothing conundrums of winter. T’is the season to party, but nothing ruins the look of a favourite little black (or red, or silver, or navy, or gold!) dress than throwing a coat over it. Unless, of course, it’s faux fur! A glamorous faux fur coat or jacket adds style points to evening outfits, rather than taking them away. Choose from full or short coats in black, white and nude at George and be party ready – even in the coldest winter weather.

For the School Run

Who says you can’t wear it on the school run? This trend adds a dash of style to even your most casual, running around outfits. A faux fur trim coat is the perfect ‘throw over your jeans and trainers’ solution, and will keep you warm and dry, whatever the weather decides to throw at you. We’ve got long and short faux fur trim winter coats in a range of colours at George, plus padded parkas for when the winter weather really does make those early morning drop-offs feel like North Pole expeditions!

Meeting the Girls

Meeting the girls for lunch or a shopping trip? You want an inside-to-outside number that you won’t swelter in whilst at the bar or the shopping centre, but will keep you warm when you need it to. A biker can be worn over everything from skinnies to skirt and boot combos, and you won’t melt underneath it. If you’re looking for outfit ideas, why not pair it with this season’s essential polo neck top and our Wonderfit jeans? Or why not rock the waistcoat trend and pop a gorgeous faux fur gilet over this classy, casual combo instead? Both are perfect day to night pieces too, for when ‘just the one’ glass of wine turns into a brilliant unplanned night out.

Keeping Cosy

Sometimes, all you really want from a coat is to keep you warm, and nothing is better at doing that than a full-on faux fur. A hooded number is a dream for hiding in when it’s frosty or bitter out. Or, if you’re worried about wet weather, we’ve got long and short length padded coats with snuggly faux fur trim hoods to keep you dry, warm – and stylish!

With Every Outfit

If you’re after a jacket you can ‘wear with everything’ this winter, we think we’ve found it. This faux fur trim jacket in black is smart enough to wear over work clothes and evening outfits, but will look equally great thrown on over jeans and boots. The faux fur trim means you’ll always look bang on trend, whatever you’re wearing underneath. Alternatively, if you’ve already got your winter coat, why not pick up a faux fur scarf to bring it bang up to date?
