If there’s one thing I’ve learned about style during my time in London, it’s that outerwear is just as important as what is worn underneath it. In this city, a great majority of time is spent wearing a coat or jacket, and even on the warmest days, the wind still blows. But a little chill and gust of wind never hurt a Fashionista, right? As I’ve surveyed the street style of one of the fashion capitals, I’ve noticed a major trend in outwear this season—fur stoles.

Faux or real, the fur stole trend has been seen on every inner city Fashionista. Though we tend to associate fur to the act dressing up, it doesn’t always have to be this way—you can incorporate the fur stole into your everyday wardrobe. This latest staple varies in length, texture and color, making it really versatile and easy to wear. By pairing it with boots or a chic pair of heels, the fur stole can be used to dress up an outfit, or it can spice up your everyday jeans, T-shirt and sneaker combination just as elegantly.

With the contrast of textures, the pop of fur on this Fashionista’s coat kicks her outfit into high gear. Luckily enough, her stole is already attached to her coat, but purchasing a few unique individual stoles makes the options for stylish and updated outerwear endless.

How To: Simply throw a fur stole over the collar of your favorite coat, jacket, blazer or over your shoulders for a very sophisticated and fashionable addition to your outerwear.
