At the risk of repeating myself for the umpteenth time, I have to say I am not a fan of Winter. It is too cold, too dark and too miserable for me, I love light nights, warm days and sunshine. But one thing I do like about Winter is the way it is suddenly acceptable to add really fun, faux fur pieces into the wardrobe, with the mantra seeming to be ‘the brighter, the better.’
I took a little Christmas shopping trip with my mom and sister on Sunday, and mom treated me to a fabulous soft grey fun fur gilet from Next that I have had my eyes on for some time. I tried it on over my dress and loved the boho look, but I know that this is a piece that can work equally as well with jeans or skinny cords on the school run. I have to say that I was seriously impressed with the Next collection of furry pieces – they ranged in colour and style, from accessories to full length coats, and were really affordable too.
After trawling through the Next website, I have to say it is definitely the place to go for faux fur – the site is just full of gorgeous pieces, including a Downton Abbey style eyelash cape, and a fur patch scarf that I have my eye on (I tried it on in store and it was just the softest, loveliest piece – I need it in my life! – husband hint in case he’s reading!).
Here are some of the faux fur pieces from Next that are well worth a look, starting with clothing.
Do you have a fave piece? Do you reach for the faux fur when the temperatures drop? Would love to hear your thoughts.
