How to Style a Faux Fur Jacket for New Year’s Eve (or any other occasion)
A faux fur jacket is such a fun and surprisingly versatile piece to mix into your closet. It’s the perfect layering piece for winter, and you can dress it up or down depending on where you’re going. Here are a few easy New Year’s Eve outfit ideas featuring a faux fur jacket. This exact faux fur jacket is from White House / Black Market and is out of stock (I found mine on eBay!), but I linked several similar options below.

1. Dressed-Up Party Style
This sparkly look features a skirt I found at a local thrift store for less than $15. Luckily, sequins are having a moment, so there are tons of other options for sequined skirts out there right now. I paired the skirt with a simple black tank top and topped it with the fur jacket. You could opt for a dressy pair of heels, but I would wear this black opaque tights and black ankle boots to keep it a little more low key.

2. In-Between Party Style
This look is a little more casual thanks to the comfy faux leather leggings and striped turtleneck, but still packs a punch with the faux fur jacket and snake print boots. Once again, you could amp this up a little with a dressy pair of heels, but for me, comfort trumps dressy heels.

3. Casual Party Style
For a more casual get together, jeans and a graphic tee are the perfect way to tone down a faux fur jacket. You could also go with a more distressed jeans style for a trendier look, or even a darker wash to make the look just a little more dressed up. These heels have a slightly rounded toe and comfort flex support inside, and they’re under $30: great for your feet and your wallet!
Faux Fur Jacket Options
When I was looking for a faux fur jacket, I wanted something neutral enough to wear with just about any color, and even prints like stripes, plaid, and leopard. I stayed away from more variegated fur patterns, and also wanted a shorter, softer fur. The trendier longer, “bigger” fur looks amazing, but for the places I go, I thought I’d stick with something slightly more conservative and versatile so I can get more use out of it. These options are definitely still statement pieces, but you can work them in a lot easier than the more trendy options.
If I’m being totally honest here, on New Year’s Eve I’ll be at home in sweatpants, probably celebrating the East Coast midnight so I can go to bed an hour early. But it’s fun to plan what I would wear if I were going somewhere. If you do have plans for New Year’s Eve, have fun and be safe!
