What has been my favorite trend over the past few months? Of course, it has to be the colorful faux furs worn by bloggers Chiara Ferragni and Charlotte Groeneveld alike. Before this trend gained popularity this season, faux furs were usually reserved for extremely important occasions.
During Milan Fashion Week, Fendi presented their fall 2016 ready-to-wear collection. Recently, creative director Karl Lagerfeld has adapted the brand to attract younger, influential consumers. Fendi has included many furs of vibrant colors to contrast against people’s beliefs of natural colored furs. Fendi has been around since 1925 so, it crucial for the brand to continue trends with the current times.
I was very interested in bringing this trend to a more casual look. I chose a blush colored, faux fur vest because I believed it would stand out among dark colored vests and jackets in the city. Also, I thought the faux fur was very intriguing seeing that it is obviously not the true natural color. I love wearing these types of vests around town because they keep me warm and I don’t have to worry about lugging around a large winter coat.
Also, I accessorized my outfit with a pair of sunglasses that had a wavy design on the arm. I love a good pair of oversized sunglasses because they can bring the total look together. The lens of the glasses is a shade of pink so it complements the pink in the faux fur vest. Additionally, I carried a distressed black handbag because it allowed me to maintain a more casual look.
All in all, fur has been a prevalent occurrence on the runways this season so, I believe this trend will continue to grow and reach all levels of consumers. It is very interesting to see how each person will interpret this trend in the future.
