It all started with those seemingly childish fluffy pom-poms hanging off our handbags. ‘What on earth is that?‘, asked the other half worrying that my sartorial influences now came from toddlers. ‘Erm… if Fendi can do them, so can I, BABE!’ #MenDontUnderstandFashion
Fast forward a few months and fashions love with everything fluffy and feathery has entered a new level. From my fave fluffy pom-pom earrings that I cannot take off, to the faux fur coats you guys are snuggling up in over in the Northern Hemisphere. Fashion has gone fluffy; and we love it! **Puts on Despicable Me Voice** ‘It’s SO FLUFFY I COULD DIE!’
My long term homies will know my serious love for all types of creatures and it’s for this reason that I DO not support real fur! Guys; the fake stuff looks just as good, as some poor Minx didn’t have to give up it’s life for you! As for feathers, I’m featuring products that only use meat bi-product materials. Ok; enough of this ethical mumbo jumbo…
Here’s how to inject a bit of fluff into your look without breaking the bank, or the environment…

Winter is the perfect excuse to get fluffy! If you want to go all out cookie-monster chic, go for a full blown faux-fur coat, such as this lovely Missguided number.
If you’re starting out on the fluffy scale, add a couple of accessories to embrace this fun trend. These Jack Wills tan gloves will save your poor pinkies from frostbite and will look good with anything.

Fluffy doesn’t necessarily have to equate to sweaty. Ok… I’m not advising you to wear a full blown faux-fur coat, that is sweaty, but little bits of fluffy and feathery embellishments here and there will add a third textured dimension to your look.
For a big fat tick to the Aussie Summer’s boho trend, opt for this Topshop feather gilet. If you’re looking to up the glam factor, opt for these matching heels too! **I am totally drooling over these**
If you’re headed to the beach, why not swap your boring old pool slides for these fun feathery babies? Add some pom pom earrings for a little quirky edge. I have these beautiful earrings myself and I literally cannot take them off!
