I want to personally wish all of my readers a Happy New Year! You guys have stuck by me for a long time and I appreciate each and everyone of you! I want to jump right into today’s post which is a “How-to” styling some of my favorite faux fur pieces.
I love the shaggy coat. I don’t gravitate toward black items often but when I do they normally have a lot of texture. I am big on details when investing in my wardrobe. I picked up this coat from H&M a few months ago and I think it adds a cool level of chic to any winter outfit.
I decided to style this piece for a night out. I kept the look glam-casual. I love the look of a graphic tee shirt paired with a sequin skirt. This look can be dressed up or down. Pairing this with a warm golden pair of pumps keeps it evening appropriate. The look is great for a winter date or club night with drinks and dancing. Keep your accessories in the same color family to take it to another level.
While on the topic of shag, a gilet is also good for building looks and layering during the colder months. I picked one up from Rainbow recently and I have yet to wear it. This can take some of the more casual outfits in your closet up a notch. Adding this piece immediately gives the illusion that you’re “put-together” even though you’re just wearing a tee shirt and jeans.
If you want to increase the sexiness of the look, put on a super low cut tee shirt and high waist distressed jeans. Pair with a strappy bra and a statement necklace to keep the attention at your neckline. Put on your favorite pair of over-the-knee boots and a bright pink fedora to finish the look. This is perfect for a brunch date with the girls or a winter concert in Madison Square Garden.
The final fur piece is not for the faint of heart. Not many people can pull off a leopard print fur coat. It is definitely a mouth full. If you like this coat you definitely have a strong personality to carry it through the streets of the city. This Bar III piece is not meant for someone who wants to blend in.
The key to styling a piece like this is to mute everything else out completely. Keep the base of the outfit neutral. This can be done with greys, denim, whites and any solid neutral that compliments your skintone. You won’t have your coat on all night so add a bit of interest to your look with a pop of color on the lips and an accessory that will keep the integrity of the look like this animal print statement necklace. You can wear this to a museum walk or see a show on Broadway.
