How cold is it over at your end?
We don’t know the temp in London at the moment, but it must be close to zero judging by the outfit Kelly Brook wore while out and about running errands yesterday. The TV personality rocked two doses of fur with her studded boots and skinny jeans. Yes, you heard that right, two doses of fur — as in, a short fur coat and a fur scarf. The exotic neck warmer was tri-colored so it was a good thing that she kept the rest of her outfit in classic black, with just a bit of red to match the fuzzy extra.

How do you like Kelly’s colored-fur-scarf style? We give it a 9 out of 10. What’s your score?
We think she looks almost perfect. But we’re very particular with details — like shoes, and for this outfit of hers, we think she would have looked much better with classic black booties instead of strappy and studded ones. What do you think?
Stealing Kelly’s style this season is as easy as counting 1-2-3. You just have to have the confidence to rock fur and own it. Here are six (6) ways or combinations that you can try if you’re on a limited budget. Remember that in order to pull off the look, you need to keep the rest of your outfit classic and as low key as possible.
1. Color on Black
This is very similar to Kelly’s combination. Simply wear an all-black outfit (fur coat included), then top it off with a brightly-colored fur scarf. You may choose to wear a colored blouse, but go with one that matches your scarf or one that is colorless like white.
2. Dark on Black
If you want to stay on the safe side, you can do the double-fur mix by going with a scarf in a much darker color so the contrast isn’t as stark. You can keep the rest of your outfit colorless — that means either in black or white.
3. Black on Color
If you want a trendier look, you can switch it up instead. Grab a bright fur coat and keep the scarf basic (in black). This means you’ll need to keep the rest of your outfit toned down as well — especially since your coat is already quite the attention seeker.

4. Color on Color
If you’re adventurous and you want to push it, you can do the fur-on-fur combo by mixing two different colors. This is a bit tricky because you’ll need to pick colors that complement. Simply refer to the color wheel if you need help on what to combine. Do remember to keep the rest of your outfit achromatic to avoid looking like a clown.
5. Light Neutral on Color
Colored coats are already quite a statement. That means colored fur toppers will give you twice the drama. To achieve a well-put-together fur-on-fur mix, top it with a light neutral (fur) scarf. Light grey, beige, and cream are your best options. This combination is best worn with an all-black, all-white, or all-grey outfit.
6. Light Neutral on Pastel
Light neutral (light grey in particular) always looks gorgeous with pastel hues so mixing them using furry pieces is possible. Just remember to keep the rest of your outfit low key — as in, stick to one achromatic or neutral hue such as white, light grey, beige, or black.
So are you ready to rock some double fur?
