We at MDG are of the party that faux fur is winter’s answer to the seersuckers of summer. The weather turns, it’s darker longer, and we want to channel our inner Anna Karenina with furs in all shapes and sizes. Fur pairs with deep red lipstick or with ripped denim. It can accessorize a purse or add an extra layer of glam to a velvet couch. It dresses up a night out or plays with our sense of humor in a bright neon hue.
Faux fur doesn’t have to be treated like a precious textile. As a result, it becomes a versatile accent for an outfit or home. An ottoman covered in a neutral fur is the perfect place to rest bare feet. A quirky striped throw blanket is an essential for a seat out on a sunset porch. Even a hammered copper chair is warmed by a fur cushion.
We pull a fur-covered lapel high up on our necks for a classic romantic look. It lines the hood of a sporty parka for the commute to work. A soft knit hat or sweater is trimmed in a complementary color and you’re ready for an après ski cocktail. A burgundy clutch doubles as a hand warmer and looks fierce with leather pants.
