Slay this Season in a Faux Fur Statement Jacket
There is an old myth that wearing real fur is considered to be the highest of luxuries and exudes the idea of you being wealthy and powerful. But who says that faux fur can’t be just as luxurious and give off that same vibe of you being wealthy, influential or powerful?
Only recently faux fur has been making its way onto runways and retailers. The material and fabrics of faux fur produced and showcased on the runways today make a revolutionary statement. Many high-fashion designers today have shifted from being completely set on this old idea and began promoting cruelty-free fashion by creating some of the most extravagant faux fur clothing pieces. With the technology improvements, you can now find thousands of different replicas of mink, beavers, leopards, foxes, tigers and many others made from synthetic fibers that resemble fur.
The main advantage designers have with using fake furs is the ability to control the volume and colors of the material, while it’s not always possible to do with the real thing, so they are able to get a lot more creative with their designs. This jacket for example, is so beautiful! The long dark green threads are so playful and fun and the jacket always looks amazing as it creates unique shapes and adds volume any way you move.
In general, all I'm trying to say is that you don't have to wear real animal fur to appear important or wealthy. And it's time to just get rid of the old, silly myth and not let fabrics or brand labels define us!
