STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Fur-eezing

When is black ever a bad idea? Or faux fur, for that matter? Wearing all-black is this Fashionista’s uniform, but adding accessories makes it much more modern. For example, adding a faux fur scarf to this black Michael Kors coat would give the outfit texture, which is a common fashion trend in 2015. If you look at Stella McCartney’s pre-fall 2015 runway collection, you can observe her use of fur as added texture throughout the collection.

This Fashionista pairs this all-black uniform (booties, jeans and wool coat) with a beautiful faux fur scarf. This piece felt and looked like real fur! Another tip on finding great faux fur is to make sure the quality is as real as possible, because you are guaranteed a longer wear of the piece. Fur, in my opinion, is a timeless piece that is always recurring. Fur has been something that’s been worn since ancient times, and throughout the years leading up to the present. Back in the day, this material was used for functional purposes, but now we use it as an accessory. I view purchasing a nice fur piece as a wardrobe investment that I have yet to make, but until then, faux fur will do. Whether it is with a scarf, a vest or a coat, Fashionistas have been parading faux fur all over campus.
