STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Faux Fur Frenzy

What is not to love about staying warm while supporting a good cause? Lately, it has been a craze to wear faux furs instead of the real thing, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and Penélope Cruz have become avid supporters of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) movement by sporting faux furs exclusively. I thought this Fashionista rocked this look and really showed confidence in her faux fur.

If you think about it, adding a faux fur to your closet would be an awesome addition. They keep you toasty in the winter, are typically much cheaper than the real thing and the trend has been everlasting throughout the decades. This particular faux fur ensemble is perfect for many occasions including a day in class, a night on the town or even a trip to the mall. This Fashionista pairs the fur vest with pleather black leggings that are perfect for keeping your legs warm and accents with a rose gold watch, which really dresses up the whole look. I’m absolutely loving the way she paired the brown and black in this outfit making it casual and classic at the same time.

The vest style of the fur is particularly trendy right now since it is a more casual look than a full fur jacket. Styling the vest is always a fun thing to do since you can still show off your sweater underneath and even dress it up with a statement necklace if you go from day to night activities. Seeing someone wearing a faux fur inspires me to be gutsier with my outfit choices. Something about faux furs just screams confidence. So, why wouldn’t you want to promote a good cause in the fashion world while also looking super chic?
