Cosy and stylish: how to wear faux fur!

We're suckers for any items of clothing that combine style and practicality, which is why we're lusting after all things faux fur this winter!

The fabric is super-luxurious and really cosy to boot. The only question is: how to wear it?

Here are a few ideas…

1. Vest is best
A faux fur vest is the ultimate addition to your winter style arsenal – layer it over a jumper or long-sleeved top for instant chic and warmth! Elle MacPherson keeps things simple with a monochrome vest – items like this will never date:

2. Collars up
A faux fur collar is a great way to add a touch of luxury to your outfit without going full-on Pat Butcher. Singer Ciara glams up a plain black outfit with her stunning fur neckpiece.

3. Head first
Keep warm with a stylish fur hat. We love Rihanna's lined camo option – how cute does she look?!

4. Wrap it up
A faux fur scarf is the next step up from a collar and looks as good over a blouse as it does with a winter coat. Olivia Palermo has the it-girl look down with this outfit:

5. Choose a colour
Furs aren't all about neutrals – get yourself seen with an eye-popping green or blue á la Sarah Jessica Parker. We reckon she was channelling her inner Carrie Bradshaw when she chose this outfit!

6. All in the details
You don't need to go overboard when it comes to fur – a few key details like a fur trim or lining are all it takes. This street style queen is ready for winter in her stunning beige suede cape. Love.

7. Crop it out
A cropped fur jacket is the height of winter style – we're definitely adding one of these to our cold weather wardrobe. Diane Kruger has stepped out in this jacket more than once – she's as big a fan of it as we are!

8. Cover up
Feel like a Hollywood glamour queen in a classic fur coat. Laura Whitmore has the right idea in this neutral option, worn over relaxed black skinnies and flats:
