When Fashionistas want to feel like a million bucks without spending a million bucks, there are a few key items they turn to. Maybe it’s a beautiful sequin dress or those extra high high-heels that make you feel spectacular. Each Fashionista is different, but fur has always been the epitome of class and status. The only problem with fur is your personal moral compass and the price. As a pet lover and owner, I always felt guilty for lusting after the beautiful white fur coat that Samantha Jones wore in Sex and the City. Luckily for us, the fashion industry has created faux fur, which is the animal friendly fur replacement. It’s cheaper and still looks gorgeous.
This Fashionista rocked a fur snood (a very popular trend recently) with a brown wool poncho. It gives the outfit enough spice to change it from casual to chic. I’m obsessed with this because it happens to be a beautiful Michael Kors creation and the fur is detachable from the poncho.
If you’re not totally for the fur snoods, you can spice up your wardrobe with other options, like a fur vest. As a skeptic on fads, I was worried fur would be a seasonal trend. If that was true, I didn’t want to waste money on fur if I could only get a small sliver of use out of it. Buying my fur vest was the best decision I’ve made and I am constantly wearing it week after week. So I encourage all you Fashionistas to try the fur trend on for size!
