Fur is a touchy subject. While we all know that nothing screams comfort and luxury more than furs, the origins of these materials are understandably controversial.
Faux furs were created to solve this Catch-22, enabling you to look fashionable while respecting wildlife. Télio has been quick to pick up on this trend; you should see the amount of faux furs we have been receiving! With so many different patterns and colours, our Merchandising team have been having a difficult time finding names for all these guys!
What’s even better is the quality of these faux furs. Plush and oh-so-soft to the touch, we think these are a fantastic compromise to the real thing. The uses for faux furs in fashion are endless! Contemporary and versatile, they add glamour with home décor pieces from throws, to rugs and pillows, make unique accessories, and are staples when it comes to outerwear.
Faux fur items definitely know how to make a bold statement, with piecing and fabric mixing adding tactile interest. Here are some of our favourite faux fur décor and fashion ideas!
The faux fur vest: Our faux fur DIY is a great place to start if you’re looking to emulate this look. Perfect for fall weather, a faux fur vest adds warmth without taking away from your look but rather acting as a statement piece. Layered over long sleeves, and paired with skinny jeans and tall leather boots, the faux fur vest is trendy and fun.
Faux fur carpet: Carpets are expensive, especially if made from real fur. But even buying a faux fur one can set you back considerably. Luckily, it’s very easy to make your own! We found this simple DIY which you can follow. The best part? No sewing required, and you can machine wash it!
A detachable faux fur collar: An easy way to spice up your fall jacket, a fur collar not only adds sophistication, but warms you up too! You can also use the collar over a cardigan or knitted sweater for warmer fall days. Follow this DIY to get the look!
