With temperatures starting to dip and leaves slowly beginning to fall, it’s time to admit that summer has officially ended. The good news is that this change in season gives us a perfectly good excuse to update our wardrobes. Fur has always been a fall favourite among fashionistas, but never before has it been so prominent on both catwalks and sidewalks. Statement fur pieces ruled the Fall 2016 runways, and were spotted everywhere from Burberry to Altuzarra. Whether you wish to splurge on an investment fur piece or layer up for the season in cozy faux accents, try incorporating plush pieces into your favourite autumn ensembles. Here are our favourite tips for bringing statement fur into your outfit of the day.

A fur purse:
Pair a fur clutch or purse with a casual sweater and jeans to add an unexpected touch of sophistication to an outfit. A bold colour like this magenta clutch can instantly brighten a monochromatic ensemble. Meanwhile, bold metallic jewellery and oatmeal-hued knits keep the overall aesthetic looking chic and current.

A fur vest:
A lightweight fur vest is the perfect layer for those early fall temperatures. Throw it on over top of jeans and a long sleeved tee or dress it up by pairing it with a little black dress. We love the idea of accessorizing an oversized and light-coloured faux fur piece with a simple black knit top and skinny denim. For a finishing touch, a leather handbag in a rich autumnal hue helps to complete your style.

A fur-accented sweater:
Whether you’re meeting girlfriends for lunch or simply picking up a pumpkin spice latte, a dark grey cardigan with a luxurious furry collar helps to seal the deal. Add casual knit leggings, a basic cotton T-shirt and white canvas sneakers for the ultimate in Saturday afternoon dressing.
