We saw faux fur vests and jackets last fall and winter, and good news for us, they're still popular this year. For us Fashionista’s, keeping up on the most current trends can burn a hole in our pockets. So, it's always refreshing to get another season out of a clothing item or accessory, and this year we're bringing back the faux fur.
This week's Fashionista showed us an alternative way to wear a faux fur vest. I loved the way she wore her cropped faux fur and lace vest. Her simple dress was styled well with her amazing accessories, socks and combat boots. Pairing the heaviness of the fur with a light dress was an unexpected way to wear a faux fur vest. When paired with the fall combat boots and socks, it made for a well-balanced autumn outfit. Like I've been saying in many of my recent posts, the weather in Iowa is so unpredictable this week’s Fashionista’s outfit is suitable for a wide range of temperatures. This season I'm still loving faux fur and if you are too, I found a few trendy ways to incorporate it into your wardrobe.
First off, you can’t really go wrong with a faux fur vest like this week's Fashionista. This season I've been wearing my sweaters and T-shirts extra long, so I think this long fur vest is a different option from shorter vests. The main reason I like a the longer length is because of its extra coverage. It can be worn with a shorter top underneath but because of the length it can be worn with leggings. Pair this vest with a silky shirtdress and a pair of chunky heeled boots. If it’s colder where you live, throw on some fun tights and you are good to go.
Not ready to go all out with faux fur? A jacket with a faux fur collar is a good way to incorporate the trend without it being too overwhelming. This colored yarn fur trimmed coat is a fun way to add color to a fall outfit. For a more traditional coat that can be worn often, this jacket is the perfect choice. The faux accents will make it easy to wear for multiple occasions like walking to class, running errands and grabbing a bite to eat with friends.
This season is still about fur and there are ways to add it into your own personal style. You can go all out with an entire fur vest or just add an element of fur to a jacket. Either way you choose, you are apt to be noticed.
