Russian Folk Fashion #OOTD

Happy Russian Christmas! To celebrate I’ve decided to dedicated an outfit of the day (OOTD) blog to Russian-folk fashion. It’s my first attempt at this … so be nice 😉

Fur the Love of Russia

Fur Headband

The Russian Folk look is in! Fur is trending this season so not only does it look incredibly luxurious and glam but it’s super warm too. I love snuggling under the headband and absolutely adore that I can change its thickness to whatever I prefer. I can wear it as thick as above for when it’s cold or I can make it thin to make it look more like a garland or even a Russian fur crown! 😉

Russian Folk Style


Wearing New Look top and shoes and a Topshop leather jacket, I stuck to the fur headband’s colour scheme of black and grey shades. Apart from seeing Russian dolls on loads of clothes and accessories, there’s also strong patterns or folk prints. Instead, I’ve used the urban image on my top to reflect that it’s an Anglo-Russian interpretation of the style.

What would you wear the fur headband with?
