ALL IN THE DETAILS: Are You Fur Real?

If there is one detail I haven’t been able to get enough of this season it’s textures in outerwear. From colorful borderline-tacky yet somehow chic faux fur, to fluffy sherpa à la Gigi Hadid, to shearling-collared corduroy, I am OBSESSING over it all. If this trend seems way out of your comfort zone, I promise it’s not. In my experience wearing faux fur, a piece so over the top comes with a built-in attitude booster. You will feel like a total rock star in a such a statement piece, and people will take notice. Seriously—I’ve never gotten as many compliments as I have when wearing my pastel pink fur coat! If you still have reservations about that winter-white sherpa jacket you’ve had your eye on, take this as your sign to go buy it. Like, yesterday.

This Fashionista killed it in an amazing vintage leopard print plush jacket. She kept the rest of her outfit streamlined with a black mockneck crop top, black high-waisted skinny jeans and a pair of edgy black leather high-top Converse All-Stars. I like how this Fashionista balanced the feminine glam of the leopard jacket with an all-black outfit and sporty shoes. She accessorized her look with her go-to jewelry and a deep red lip.

How To: Voluminous, textured jackets can be intimidating—especially when it comes to styling them. For pieces this bold, let them speak for themselves! Pair your jacket with basics like this Fashionista did. Avoid competing patterns to prevent the outfit from looking too busy. You can never go wrong with a monochromatic look.
