Fashion has been getting pretty daring lately, incorporating faux textures more and more into ready-to-wear looks that are both chic and totally doable. This winter is going to be no exception. Faux fur and faux feathers are coming back in a big way, and we're ready to strut through the snow cozy, warm and stylish as all hell! But if you're never attempted the faux textures before, have no fear! We've got some great ideas for how to pull off both fur and feathers in a way that's casual yet cool. Sorry, sweaters; we're ready to get bold!

1. Fur Starters

To dip your toe into the fur pool (yes, we know that's a weird image), we recommend starting off with a fur accessory before going with outerwear. Luckily, this season is chock full of fur scarves to choose from, but we love this gray faux fur snood ($48, Top Shop) that we can snuggle our noses into. To keep the look even more cas, we're opting for a plain white tee ($12, HM) with a slouchy burgundy cardigan ($22, May Kool) to go over it, perfect for when you're running late to class but still want to up your style game. Boyfriend jeans ($31, Style Moi) are always essential for keeping things comfy, but combat boots with a chunky heel ($45, Hot Topic) will dress the look up just a tad. And that's all it takes to make everyone super jel of your carefree style on Insta.

2. Just a Touch of Feathers

We're totes obsessed with faux feathers for our nighttime look, but if you want just a touch of feathers to accent your on-the-town apparel, try this form-fitting dress with feather trim ($59, Rare London). To swag it up while keeping it warm, this black jacket with gray lapels ($40, New Look) will look great over your flouncy dress while strappy black heels ($34, Amazon) say you're ready to strut your stuff. Cat eyed black sunglasses ($26, Princess Polly) add a bit of mystery while a statement necklace ($3.70, Chic Nova) ups the game of this look 10-fold. Finish it off with this daring bangle ($14, Style Moi), and you're sure to get noticed!

3. Full-on Fur

If you're ready to dive right in for some faux fur love, go straight for the fur outerwear. We love this pale gray faux fur jacket ($68, Chic Wish) for our look, paired on top of black skinny jeans ($19, She Inside). A berry crop top ($14, Wear All) will add a pop of color while a silver statement choker necklace ($40, Lord and Taylor) adds to the finesse of this already chic outfit. Finally for our shoes, we're bringing it back to the '90s with these crushed velvet ankle booties ($38, HM) (we totes remember Sabrina the Teenage Witch wearing them).

4. More Fun With Feathers

We've decided to rock faux feathers for our upcoming holiday parties and this is how we're doing it. Feather skirts ($50, Target) are just about the cutest feather textured item around, and we're loving them in black. Tuck in a festive red blouse ($42, Chic Wish) for a pop of seasonal color with a pair of tights ($13, ModCloth) to keep those legs warm. Strappy black flats are everything right now, and we're opting for this pointed toe pair ($50, Zara), finishing off the look with a (of course) a feathered bangle ($20, Lady Lux).
