Fashion Forward: Faux Fur
As soon as the temperature drops in south Florida, everyone pulls out the winter wear. But this season, don't just throw on a parka, try some faux fur instead. Shireen Sandoval shows us how to wear it in tonight's Fashion Forward.
WSVN--No one likes a fake... But this season, fake or faux fur is a fashion must have.
Marilyn Abril: "If you're against harming animals and you're with peta, you're not harming any animals in wanting to wear faux fur."
At Blush Boutique on South Beach, faux fur is no faux pas.
If you love the look of fur, but don't want to hurt nature's furry friends, then go faux.
Marilyn Abril: "It's a synthetic basically and they dye them in all different colors, depending on which fabric you're going to match it up with from browns to pinks to whites."
And this season, it's all about dressing up.
Try this faux fur vest with sequin trim over a cocktail dress.
Or go for this white faux vest with a pair of jeans.
Faux fur will keep you warm, but won't let them see you sweat.
Marilyn Abril: "Faux fur you can wear it all times of day. Some people think it's just for nighttime. You can wear it during the day."
At Macy's, you can find faux fur on just about anything.
Melissa Goff: "Faux fur is the perfect finishing touch."
Vests, hoodies, shrugs and even shoes are all lined with faux fur.
But the hottest seller is anything with a detachable collar, like this leather jacket.
The look is perfect for day or night.
Melissa Goff: "Whether you wear it for a dressed up occassion with a great silk camisole and sweater or whether you're a little more casual with a capelet and a great pair of jeans, it all depends upon your personal style and how you incorporate it in your existing wardrobe."
From a faux fur capelet over jeans...
To a fur-trimmed shrug... You can stay warm and look hot.
Melissa Goff: "You're going to find it all across the board to be able to integrate it in your existing wardrobe."
Shireen Sandoval: "Just make sure you don't overdo it, you don't want to wear faux fur from head to toe. Want the look, log onto our website at wsvn.com. In the newsplex, Shireen Sandoval, Seven News.
