Finally I was able to coherently make my “How to Wear” post with the faux fur vest. This was supposed to go up sooner, but I had the nicest New Year vacation ever…This statement was pure irony if you hadn’t noticed! If you follow my Instagram you’d know I fell sick through the whole new year holiday. First I got the cutest most adorable food poisoning and basically spent my days hugging a bucket, then I caught a flu and the rest is history! But now I’m back among the living and made myself look pretty just for you! I did it aaaaaall for you! *insert creepy love struck stare*
A Hint Of Granny
This outfit turned out a little more grannyesque than I would have hoped for. I was aiming for boho, but I ended up with grandma. Maybe it’s the knitted sweater, either way I still like it. I have a huge appetite for red and pink mixes and if you’d like to spice this up, you can remove the sweater and use a simple top with a fedora hat. Sassy!
Raspberry sweater – Mango, Chelsea Boots – Stradivarius, Skirt – Second hand
Keeping Warm with Leather
Wedge Sneakers – River Island, Sweater – Second Hand, Biker Jacket – Choies
I love to wear leather during Winter, but my skinny spider-like limbs can’t take the cold. Well, guess what, fur keeps you warmer!!! Shocking! For this outfit I kept the bare minimum, but you can always put a huge scarf and powerful mittens!
I call this the blogger, because it’s unpractical, but pretty, just like us bloggers love to dress! Raise your hand if you saw a blogger wearing a coat with bare legs during Winter!
This can go great with a cardigan or a sweater over the dress, but I wanted to keep it playful and more spirited, so I kept the hands bare. For a bold finish I added my quarz necklace and leather bracelet.
Dress – Nowistyle, Bracelet – Choies
The OVERly Enthusiastic
Eyelash Jumper – Select (mine is second hand, but similar here), Denim Overalls – Choies (similar here)
For the styling here I played around with textures and used my fluffy sweater for the top and denim overalls for bottoms. People usually shy away from overalls, but they’re super versatile. And I always thought fur and denim do magic together!
This is something I imagine wearing while walking around the busy New York streets. The oversize shirt with the distressed jeans make for a perfect balance between casual and elegant. And the fuzzy socks – boots combo makes it laid back, but with an edge.
So what do you guys think? How would you style a faux fur vest?
