In the second of our curator specials, Yuen Lim gives us the lowdown on faux fur this season. With celebs like Fearne Cotton channeling this trend, we reckon it’s here to stay.

Over to you, Yuen…

 

Put aside that coat or jacket – faux fur is a trend that is taking the winter season by storm. What I love about this trend is that it makes a statement on its own and keeps you warm – what more can you want?!

Either go subtle with hints of faux fur on your outer wear, or go all out with whole faux fur gilets or vests. The best part about this trend is that you can simply throw it on for a luxurious, couture look without trying very hard at all. That’s your lazy day sorted! Oh and, no animals were harmed in the process 😉

Whilst creating my Faux Fur list on Shopcade, I was thinking about ways to incorporate something unique into my wardrobe or closet that is still season appropriate. Of course, the perfect addition was something that is out of the ordinary, puts you as the center of attention and most importantly, prevents you from getting frostbite.

With the faux fur trend, it may not seem like it, but it is in actual fact, super versatile. You can style it two ways – either keep it simple and minimal for a casual outing, or as a cover up over a glittery, glamorous party dress.

#3 What’s Your Holiday-Dress Style?

Dinner Party vs After Party

Holidays equal party season. The first thing that comes to mind when we hear the word party is “what do we wear?” If it’s an office event, you’ll have to stick to classic holiday garb. We’re thinking reds, plaids, and brocade. If it’s at a friends apartment you’ll want a stand-out sparkly number. Sequins and LBD’s EVERY-WHERE! Which holiday party dresses are you most excited to dress for?

The results are in and the winner is…After Party!

Thank you to everyone who followed the list and congrats to
