    The Best Ways to Wear Your Faux Fur Scarf

    Although summer isn’t entirely over yet, kids are returning to school, and the stores are slowly but surely transitioning to their Halloween decorations. Before you know it, fall will be knocking on your door, accompanied by pumpkins and the changing color of leaves.

    While some people mourn the end of summer, others prepare to embrace the warmth and coziness that comes with autumn. In addition to warm fires and cooler temperatures, it’s also a great opportunity to express your style through fall fashion.

    One accessory that’s gained popularity recently is the faux fur scarf. The faux fur scarf is great for keeping you warm during chill days and adds a touch of luxury and sophistication to any outfit. To help you make the most of your styling efforts, we’ll go over a few of the best ways to wear your faux fur scarf and make the most out of the changing season.

    1. Classic Drape

    One of the easiest, most straightforward ways to wear a faux fur scarf is using the classic drape technique. All you need to do here is put the scarf around your neck and allow each end to fall naturally along the front of your outfit. This is a great way to dress up a casual outfit and give yourself a little extra warmth for a night out. You can wear your faux fur scarf casually draped over jeans and a sweater, or even a formal dress or coat. If you want to make a statement, consider styling contrasting colors together so that your faux fur scarf really pops.

    2. Everyday Casual Chic

    When you’re feeling a little cozier but still want to add some style to your outfit, drape your faux fur scarf around your neck in a loose loop. This style is great for brunch with friends, a day at the mall, or a simple walk around the neighborhood. Finish the look with a matching pair of ankle boots, and you’re ready to go.

    3. On Top of a Denim Jacket

    Denim jackets are one of the most worn fall fashion accessories, but sometimes they’re a little too light for the weather. Style your denim jacket by draping a faux fur scarf over the top for an added degree of elegance. You can choose a scarf with solid colors to pair well with more outfits, then dress it up with a statement necklace or bracelet. Consider adding a fitted turtleneck underneath your scarf that’s tucked into high-waisted jeans for an effortlessly chic style.

    4. Over a Dress

    If you’re heading out for a night on the town, or attending a nice dinner party, style your faux fur scarf over an elegant dress. Consider using monochromatic patterns or stick to a solid color that complements your dress. This can help create a subtle yet elegant appearance. You can simply drape the scarf over your neck and allow it to fall freely onto the front of your dress. Add your favorite jewelry and some statement shoes and you’re ready to head out the door.

    5. Paired with Leather

    For an edgier look, try layering your faux fur scarf over the top of a sleek leather jacket. The faux fur will soften the leather while still keeping a bit of attitude in the outfit. You can style it either symmetrically or asymmetrically over your shoulder, then pair it with skinny jeans and ankle boots to complete the look.

    6. Under a Belt

    To turn the faux fur scarf into a complete outfit, put on a fitted long-sleeve shirt, then drape the scarf over your shoulders and cinch it with a statement belt in the front. The belt should be centered, with the scarf secured firmly in place but not too tight. The belt will hold the scarf in place while helping your body achieve an hourglass figure. 

    7. Off One Shoulder

    When you want to change things up, consider wearing your faux fur scarf draped off one shoulder. This creates an asymmetrical look that allows both your outfit and your scarf to shine through. Try to position the scarf diagonally across your body and allow it to cascade over one shoulder. Add tailored pants or a long skirt to complete the look.

    8. Transformative Hood

    Experiment with transforming your faux fur scarf into a hood for an added touch of mystery and warmth. All you need to do is drape the scarf around your neck as you usually would, then pull one end over your head to create a hooded effect. Your scarf should be thick enough so that the other side remains on your shoulders. Otherwise, the look might be a little odd. You can then bring up either end over your head to secure them with a clip or pin. Pair your hooded scarf with a trench coat or tailored blazer and knee-high boots for the best impact.
