Due to the chunky coats and loads of layers we throw on to survive the cold winter days, it is important to choose details and accessories with a lot of personality, allowing them to take the spotlight and spark up your outfit. Putting aside her coat, this Fashionista chose the perfect detail for winter: fur.

Fur is the perfect texture to add to a winter outfit because it reminds me of being warm and cozy due to its fluffiness. Pairing a faux fur vest with a winter outfit adds dimension as well as warmth. Throwing on a fur vest instantly adds pizazz, and if it’s going to act as a warming factor, it’s like getting two for the price of one! I love how this Fashionista paired her faux fur vest with a chambray shirt to make it more of an every day, casual look instead of looking too fancy. A great way to dress down flamboyant pieces is to pair them with more casual, neutral pieces. Cross-body bags are super handy—especially when you’re a Fashionista doing Fashionista things like shopping—because they leave your hands and arms free. Adding the fur keychain gave her plain, black bag a new look, which I absolutely loved. I’ve been adoring fur keychains, and I am guilty for having one for almost all my bags. She kept her bottom half neutral in order to let her fur details do the talking.

Don’t let the Fashionista in you hibernate, and let the details and accessories shine out from under the tons of layers and heavy coats. Stay warm and stay fashionable!

How To: Throw on a fur vest to effortlessly make an outfit seem more chic and fashionable. Wear it with a chambray shirt for a more casual look, or pair it with a dress and some knee-high boots for a night out. Add a fur keychain to your bag to add a wintery feel to your outfit.
