July seems to be the winter month, it’s been extremely cold and so I’ve been hibernating under lots of blankets and a heater. (As I write this, I think of all those less privilege so my prayers go out to them). With winter, we know that the fashion basics are faux fur, trench coats, boots, skorts, stockings, gloves, fendora hats and snoods as well as trackpants and sweaters. Trying a range of these throughout winter is perfect to beat the cold yet look fashionista perfect. My basics this winter is bodysuit and leggings and then I build up my daily outfit from there. Layering is known in winter, so the basic tee and bottom part is essential and from there, outfit of the day can be built. (My style tip)
Well the main attraction of this post is faux fur. The above post is of the cropped fur jacket, it’s most great to team it up with high-waisted pants, jeans or skirts, I however went with the leggings for comfort reasons. I’m not quite a fur person, but I will prove a few different fur options. The oversized faux fur like the Olsen sisters, channels your bohemian soul and you can style it by keeping the undergarments subtle and add boots and jewels and a skinny jeans or pants to give the right balance. If you a newbie to the faux fur trend, you could try the vest fur, the vests usually have zips so it can be worn open or closed, so you can team it up with a dress or with the casual look of jeans, t-shirt and ankle boots. I remember seeing Edgar’s having the new trend of multicolored faux fur, whereby the fur is dyed a specific color. Multicolor fur jackets are a great way to incorporate color into a neutral outfit like a basic full black leggings and t-shirt. For those like me, whom can’t deal with so much faux fur, there is options of scarves and bags. Still being on trend, the lighter options are available. You can style the scarf over a leather jacket or wool jersey. You can rock a fur charm on your bag as well. Remember accessories always is a good way to ease in a trend, especially with the faux fur as it will update your look according to the latest winter trend.
So from faux fur jackets to the bag charms there are options to keep you on trend but an important tip is to only balance one fur item in your outfit look.
