Your 2012 mantra may be "out with the old, in with the new," but we think there's something to be said for recycled treasures. Case in point: today's one-minute makeover pulls from what you already have in the back of your closet and breathes new life into a tried-and-true wardrobe piece. We're feeling the (faux) fur vibe, so if you've got it, flaunt it: style yourself with a flash of fur.
- Don't just opt for a traditional fur coat — get creative with trapper hats, plush collars, vests, and subtle lining.
- Add texture to any ensemble instantly. The natural color variations of fur — black, brown, gray, white, and more — make for a dynamic burst of movement and layering. Try a long fur vest with a button-up top, cable-knit sweater, and dark skinny jeans for an updated silhouette.
- By injecting a bit of fur into your look, you've upped your glam factor a couple notches. The luxe material is an easy way to dress up a daytime look or transform a pretty evening ensemble into old Hollywood red-carpet-worthy.
- Bottom line: it's cold outside and a little fur can go a long way. Cozy up with a faux fur jacket, a colorful fur cossack, or a pair of fur-lined mittens. Any way you spin it, this furry tip will help you survive the Winter months.
