STYLE GURU STYLE: Seeing Fur

In the past few years we have seen fur become a major trend in fashion from the runway to people like you and me. What I love about fur is that it’s an easy add to many different styles and other trends we are currently seeing. Designers love incorporating fur into their collections and we see this in Jason Wu’s fall 2015 line. This collection features many classic colors such as black and simple silhouettes with just a pop of color and fur. I was inspired by this particular collection because of the way Jason Wu kept all of the pieces very sharp and tailored with just hints of edge to keep the looks sophisticated and chic.

What I love about taking inspiration from a runway collection is that you don’t have to try to copy a particular look exactly. You can use it as a way to help you put together pieces in your closet that you already own. That is what I did with my outfit here! I started off with a black knit sweater with cutout sleeves and paired it with an ombre black and gray fur vest. This fur vest is EVERYTHING. I love the blend of colors from light to dark giving your look dimension and making it even more fashion-forward. It’s a new twist on the fur vest and has become very popular this season.

As for my accessories I wanted to go for something with more edge. Thigh-high boots are a must have in your closet this winter. They are the perfect boot to wear for any type of occasion and can be paired with so many different outfits. I chose them for this look because I was wearing a sweater dress that would show off the boots perfectly. Then, to finish off the outfit, I grabbed a light pink Rebecca Minkoff cross-body bag. Jason Wu had various pops of color in his runway show, which inspired me to add this pink bag since the majority of my outfit was black. Depending on your own personal preference, you can add any color bag you want! To finish it off, I added my favorite pair of oversized sunglasses. You can never go wrong with these, no matter the outfit.

Using runway shows as inspiration for your daily outfits is a great way to keep your looks different and up to date with current fashion trends. It gives you constant ideas to make you the stand out fashionista of your friends! Just remember that you never have to copy the looks but use it as inspiration to pair with your own personal style!
