Mercedes Benz Fashion Week has come and gone and taken with it a slew of epic shows from the likes of Bec & Bridge, Sass & Bide, Zhivago, We Are Kindred and many more hitting the runway for our viewing pleasure. Fashion highlights included Alice McCall’s feather adornments, Bec & Bridge’s bold and innovative designs and Zhivago’s unique take on a futuristic but retro-inspired runway style.
Amidst the flashy and stunning runway styles emerged an abundance of new season trends. Something we look forward to every year is seeing the way the fashion world might change for the coming months based off what is sent down the runway. One surefire trend we saw emerge was the classic but ever stunning faux fur accessories. From jackets to scarves, throw-overs to gloves and fluffy keyring pom-poms, faux fur is a trend that has never truly left the fashion scene — it simply takes a holiday and comes storming back just at the right time!
So, how can you work some faux fur into your street style?
Dual-tone faux fur jackets are one of our favourite ways to wear faux fur this season. Working in two colours can turn your jacket into a statement piece to set off your outfit in just the right way, and faux fur jackets don’t always have to be worn over dresses! This stunning street style look has been paired with a bright, bold-coloured suit with flared pants and a trim jacket. Bright, heart-shaped sunglasses and statement rings further exemplify this outfit as quintessentially perfect and we just adore the subtle nuances within it all!
The inspired rendition of this look is our Fire and Ice Jacket by Unreal Fur. Featuring a stunning ombre of black and white, this jacket is the perfect way to incorporate chic style into your outfit! Emulate this street style with a bold jumpsuit, such as our The Blank Stare Jumpsuit by Mossman. Featuring bright and bold red with off-shoulder sleeves and a flared hem, this jumpsuit is the perfect centrepiece to your stunning street style look!
A perfect example of how faux fur can be styled up as a statement accessory, rather than the centrepiece of an outfit. This ensemble subtly incorporates the use of faux fur for a simple yet effective pop of colour. Soft pink faux fur completes this street style made up of a loose fitting pleated long sleeved blouse, paired with jeans. It’s a good example of how the right accessories can completely and utterly transform an otherwise minimalistic outfit!
Incorporate some faux fur into your next street style ensemble in the same way. Add this accent piece to the strap of an over-the-shoulder bag, sweeping it across your shoulders like a shawl to perfect your look! Glam up a little black dress with a look like this, having your hair tied back to keep all eyes on you and your fabulous faux fur! Try it with our Maurie and Eve Elia Dress for a cocktail party or a night out in the city with the girls! Keep your other accessories to a minimal so that the attention remains fixed on your stunning faux fur!
The great thing about street style is that it can be understated. It’s the smaller facets that make simple ensembles memorable, an example of which is this outfit. A black lace midi dress topped off with silver accessories, dark sunnies, loose hair, natural makeup, a burgundy clutch and a thick, brown faux fur jacket that we just adore.
Get this look with our Unreal Dream Jacket by Unreal Fur in chocolate. Featuring fluffy, full-length sleeves, a crew neckline and a clasp closure, this jacket is the perfect finishing touch to your next street style outfit. Pair yours with a lace black mini dress to mimic this faux fur street style from Mercedes Benz fashion week!
Our Bitter Sweet Halter Midi Dress by Maison Vivienne is the perfect choice of dress to wear with this faux fur jacket! Featuring a v-neckline with a halter neck, peplum hem, cinched waist and a snug, bodycon fit. All this dress needs is a few silver statement accessories and a brown fur jacket to pull the look together.
Spotted at Mercedes Benz fashion week was this gingham pant suit set that we simply adored. The gorgeous print with navy accents was styled with a black sling purse and a beautiful grey faux fur jacket that complemented the set perfectly! Finished with a simple pair of black boots, an up-do and natural makeup, this outfit speaks très chic!
Get this look with our Aleen Jacket by George! Plush grey faux fur with a crew neckline and three-quarter sleeves make for an accessory, rather than a statement piece. This isn’t a jacket to overpower your outfit but one to compliment it, and that’s what we adore so much about it! Pair it with a bright and bold playsuit that shows off a little skin like this street style. Go for our Wildwood Jumpsuit by Alice McCall with its bright florals, halter neckline and sternum cut-outs! With a comfortable, loose hemline and a cinched waist, this figure flattering playsuit would be elevated by our faux fur jacket!
Add a finishing touch to your outfit just like this MBFWA street style with faux fur! It doesn’t always have to be a jacket that you strut your stuff in. A simple scarf or shawl made from faux fur can change your look from relaxed and carefree to sophisticated and unforgettable!
