Style Advice of the Week

If you’re an avid reader of the site or know anything about the fabulous Amy Levin, founder and Creative Director of CollegeFashionista, you know that her obsessions include candy, leather and fur. Of course candy is fabulous, but leather and fur are having a major fashion moment right now. Both textures have been the biggest trends this winter. Together, they make a killer combination that Amy has been rocking for awhile, but other Fashionistas are quickly catching on as well.

When I spotted this Fashionista, I loved her take on leather and fur, also known as the “Amy Levin look.” Instead of donning leather, this Fashionista went for something similar by wearing wax-coated jeans. They’re a much more affordable option that will keep your wallet happy — plus, in my opinion, they’re way more comfortable. Fur is everywhere right now, but I think a vest is the perfect option for a cute daytime look that would work for class. A simple T-shirt or blouse will keep this look from being a bit too much. A cool pair of boots and a fun patterned scarf complete the ensemble perfectly. Also, how fabulous are this Fashionista’s purse and sunglasses?

It would be super easy and chic to take your fur and leather into night too. Swap your vest for a short fur jacket, and wear it with a cute top and a statement necklace. Instead of pairing boots with your leather pants, swap them for some heels. Your ensemble would for sure be Amy Levin-tested and CollegeFashionista-approved.
