WHAT TO WEAR: Out With Friends

What to Wear

As we continue to barrel through this bleak and cold winter, keeping warm seems like it should be on our minds often. However, it’s not always on the forefront for many Fashionistas/os. (Just look at the current “jacket worn as a cape” street style trend at New York Fashion Week.) With this stylish mindset, let your inner style warm you instead. I just about melted with admiration when I spotted this Fashionista’s fur vest and had to snap a photo of her. It’s a versatile piece, but what first came to mind is that it’s perfect for a fun night out with some friends.

Fur vests are a hit or miss sometimes, but I feel that as long as you’re confident in doing so anyone can sport one. In fashion, you can make your own rules, which is why it’s so interesting to see what Fashionistas/os throw together. This Fashionista is certainly rocking this plum fur vest like no one’s business and the rest of her outfit comes together effortlessly from this feature piece. The dark tones reflect the current winter season, but the fur accent definitely spices up this otherwise chilly time of year. To enhance this already fabulous outfit, her metallic toned boots and the vintage jewelry pieces help to add just that extra oomph and also complement her vest with their more subdued hues.

Colors play a major role in the coordination of outfits and I love the subtlety of the plum color. It’s just enough of a pop of color to create some fun. When going out with friends, you should always try to add a fun piece to your outfit. This kind of occasion is definitely not fit for a professional suit. When it comes to accessories, boots are a necessity with this recent snow, but you can have some fun with them as well. Maybe try a pair of combat boots instead, and play around with it until it fits your sense of style. Once you have the perfect combination, you’ll certainly be in the right mindset to have a fun night out.

One Simple Change: If you find yourself to be in a warmer climate, don’t fret! You can still sport a fur vest. Try a dark toned maxi skirt with the fur vest, which would be perfect for running errands or shopping. Toss on a pair of wedges or sandals and you’ll be all set.
