How to Wear a Faux Fur Stole

Faux fur stoles are so in right now. They ward off the chill, whilst adding a touch of old school Hollywood glamour to your look – so they’re great for winter. If you’re thinking about buying one in the next few months, keep reading, as Luxe Models reveals five ways to wear a faux fur stole….

Draped over your shoulders

Faux Fur Luxe Models
The easiest way to wear a faux fur stole is to drape it elegantly across your shoulders – a look that’ll lend a cool, but sophisticated vibe to your outfit. Drape the stole around the neck and shoulders of a collared jacket or coat, to strike the contrast you need to really make this style work.

With a plain dress

Faux fur stoles make a big statement – so they work really well with simpler pieces. If you team a gorgeous black faux fur stole with a chic plain white dress, for example, you can really jazz up your look. If you go with this, don’t be afraid to team it with big stiletto heels and over-sized shades, for that true A-list look.

Cinched with a belt

If it’s really windy outside, you might want to think about holding the stole down with a classy, understated belt. Be sure to opt for a thin belt – we’ve found that if you team this statement neckwear with a chunkier belt, it’ll detract from the sheer beauty of the stole.

Pinned down

The best way to channel the 40s movie star vibe that’s practically synonymous with faux fur is to pin your stole down with a vintage broach. Here’s how you do it - when you drape the stole around your neck make sure one side’s longer than the other, then bring the sides together until they touch at chest height, and pin!

Over one shoulder

If you don’t care about practicality, you can always drape a faux fur stole over just one shoulder. OK – you may have to stop it falling off every five minutes – but this look is so deliciously avante garde you won’t care!

Think about balance

Whichever look you choose, you need to think about balance. Faux fur stoles tend to make a bit of a splash, so you don’t want to overcrowd it with statement jewellery, big patterns or clashing colours. Keep it simple and you’ll be able to rock winter stoles all season long!

How to Wear Statement Necklaces

Here at Luxe Models we love statement jewellery – throw on a bedazzled bracelet, a bold necklace or a gem-studded ring and you can glam up even the drabbest of wardrobe choices.

Statement Necklaces Luxe Models

Five tips for wearing statement necklaces

So many people are afraid of wearing statement necklaces, but with Luxe Models on your side you don’t have to be. Here are five tips you can use to rock a statement necklace.

1) Abandon patterns: Whatever you do, don’t wear a statement necklace with a patterned top – they’ll clash horribly. You might want to think about using the bold piece to jazz up plainer shirts instead!

2) One at a time: Have you ever seen anyone wear a statement necklace with an eye-catching bangle? We doubt you have because this is a big faux pas in the world of fashion – stick to one statement piece at a time.

3) Think of your neckline: The key to pulling off a statement necklace is to make sure it goes with your neckline. You might want to think about pairing this larger than life jewellery with turtle-necked jumpers, off-the-shoulder numbers, or V-neck dresses – these necklines are perfect!

4) Adhere to a colour scheme: This is a cardinal rule of fashion that you should definitely apply to statement necklaces. If you’ve opted for a colour scheme for the rest of your outfit, extend it to your choice of statement necklace, so it blends seamlessly into the rest of your look.

5) Have some fun: At the end of day statement necklaces are big, bold and beautiful. The next time you wear one do a little experimenting and have some fun – you might just find a new way to work this fabulous piece into your wardrobe.

Wear with pride

If we leave you with anything, let it be that you need to wear a statement necklace with pride. If you use these tips, you’ll have everything you need to exude extreme confidence the next time you choose team this fabulous piece of jewellery with your outfit!

How to Wear a Puffer Jacket

If you want to keep yourself warm without sacrificing your sense of style this winter, stick around. Luxe Models reveals how to wear a puffer jacket.

Ward off the chill

Luxe Models Puffer Jacket
Now November has started, people across the UK are starting to feel the cold. It’s only set to get worse as we barrel into December and the New Year, so you’re going to need to start thinking about how you can wrap yourself up to ward off the chill.

Any fashionista worth their salt will tell you that it’s hard to guard yourself against the dipping temperatures of a UK winter, whilst retaining your sense of style. You might want to think about investing in a few puffer jackets, which according to Huffington Post Canada, are set to be all the rage this winter.

Five styling tips

These coats will keep you incredibly warm but if you’re not careful they’ll ruin your look. Here are five tips you can use to ensure that you have the ability to rock a puffer jacket this winter:

1) Think about length: It’s so hard to find the right length of puffer jacket; too long and it’ll swallow you whole, too short and it can exaggerate the “puffiness” of the piece. We’d suggest you go for a jacket that hits mid-thigh to strike a good balance.

2) Consider colour: It goes without saying that you should avoid jackets in bright shades such as neon pink and luminescent green. Yet we’d also advise you to ensure that you choose a shade of puffer which co-ordinates with the rest of your outfit, so the coat will add that finishing touch you need to craft a killer winter style.

3) Create a flattering silhouette: As we suggested earlier you need to balance out the puffiness of this jacket if you’re going to pull it off. That’s why you should think about teaming a puffer with skinny jeans, belts and statement heels to create a flattering silhouette!

4) Keep accessories minimal: If you’re thinking about pairing a puffer jacket with a big necklace, a bold scarf, or chunky bangles stop and think again! It makes enough of a statement on its own, so teaming it with a tonne of gaudy accessories won’t do you any favours.

5) Think outside the box: The puffer jacket market is really varied; you can get jackets without sleeves, puffers that resemble biker jackets, coats that feature fur-trimmed hoods etc. Shop around and find the puffer jacket that best suits your sense of style; that way you can fit it seamlessly into your existing wardrobe!

Pull it off

Wearing a puffer jacket might make you feel like you’re walking on the edge of a cliff – one wrong move and you’ll have a full blown disaster on your hands. However if you use these tips from Luxe Models, you’ll be able to rock the puffer jacket and wrap up warm this winter!

How to Pull Off Leopard Print

If you want to find out how to rock one of this season’s hottest trends, stick around, as Luxe Models reveals how to pull off leopard print.

Exciting print

Leopard Print Luxe Models
If you’re a fan of fashion, you’ll already know that leopard print is set to be huge this season. The striking pattern was everywhere on the autumn/winter 2015 catwalks, especially on the coats and jackets you need to stay warm as the cold weather descends.

The thing about leopard print is that it’s bold; it’s so bold that it can actually be pretty gaudy if you don’t wear it right. Make the wrong fashion choices and leopard print can make you look like you’ve just walked onto the set of EastEnders; Kat Slater is hardly the ideal style role model.

Five tips

So how can you pull off this incredibly bold, statement print? Here are five tips you can use to rock the leopard print look:

1) Abandon big accessories: Now is not the time for Pat Butcher style earrings. Your best bet with leopard print is to team the pattern with subtle accessories; the style is bold enough on its own without statement jewellery.

2) Pair with neutrals: Don’t pair a leopard print jacket with a bright-pink top or a neon-green t-shirt. The colours will clash horribly, so you should think about wearing pieces in neutral tones such as black and white when you don leopard print.

3) Restrain yourself: One leopard print item is enough – if you’re wearing a leopard print t-shirt, don’t team it with a jacket decorated with the same pattern. We should note though that you can wear it with other patterns such as stripes and polka dots; a look that’ll provide your wardrobe with a cool rock star-edge!

4) Be bold:
Leopard print is incredibly bold, so you need the attitude to match. If you don a leopard print coat without ensuring you’re fully confident with your choice of outfit, the item will look distinctly out-of-sync with the rest of your look.

5) Keep makeup light: If you want to avoid clich├ęd leopard print, you should keep your makeup light. A little bit of gloss and soft eye makeup can set the statement print off just right, but any more than that and it just won’t work.

Look fabulous

Many women choose to avoid leopard print like the plague. However you don’t have to; if you use these tips from Luxe Models, you can rock one of Autumn/Winter 2015’s hottest trends and craft a truly fabulous outfit!
