Hello winter! With all the snow and sudden low temperatures, you’d think the winter season arrived overnight! With many of us looking for accessories that both look great and keep us warm, this season usually gives Fashionistas a hard time.  Most people look to scarves as their first defense against the cold, but this time we’re going to take winter apparel a step further and go for something different. The solution is simple: faux fur.

Faux fur is a major winter trend that has been popular during the season due to its unique qualities. There are so many colors and textures available making furs great for any style. People usually think that fur can only be worn as an outer coat, but this Fashionista has incorporated it into her everyday outfit. Since it’s a vest, it can be worn similar to cardigan, plus you won’t have to worry about getting too hot. Faux furs are perfect for adding texture and visual interest to any outfit and can be dressed up or down, depending on your style. In the case of this Fashionista, she kept her look simple so that the fur was the highlight of the outfit; the red shirt that she wears underneath the vest looks great and adds a pop of color without overpowering the vest. I like that the look was kept casual yet still reflected her fun and outgoing personality.

Grabbing any fur vest, a solid colored shirt, ripped jeans and high boots can give you a similar look to this Fashionista. So next time you find yourself out and about on a chilly day, ditch those old scarves for a faux fur and take on winter in style!
