The temperatures in Boston have recently dropped to the thirties. You know what that means, Fashionistas: time to embrace your inner snow bunny or Rachel Zoe and wrap yourself in fur, but save the animals and keep it faux! From Miu Miu to DVF we saw furs galore on the fall runways. Prabal Gurung for one featured his furs in shades of black, gray, white and bright red. When I think of fur, my idol, Janis Joplin, comes to mind. This Fashionista channels the bohemian glamour of fur with a studded bag, Native American-inspired jewelry and neutral tones.
Name: Camille Montano
CollegeFashionista: How would you describe your style?
Camille Montano: It really changes by the season. In the summer I’m very boho and look like I never leave the beach. In the winter I go darker, more chic.
CF: What is your favorite part of your outfit?
CM: I guess the centerpiece is the fur vest. But usually I would say my shoes or jewelry.
CF: Where do you like to shop in Boston?
CM: I like Free People and Bloomingdales. I don’t shop in Forever 21 or Urban Outfitters because I like to have what others don’t have. I shop a lot on vacations in random markets. I’m from Hong Kong so I shop there too.
CF: What can’t you live without in the winter?
CM: Boots and scarves!
How To: To get this Fashionista’s look invest in a good quality faux fur vest. Her vest is by Surrell, but you can try this one by Rebecca Taylor. Keep the rest of your outfit basic with a cream-colored thermal, skinny jeans and black boots. Go urban-boho with your accessories with a studded black leather bag and handmade jewelry. This Fashionista’s bag is by Street Level, and she purchased all her jewelry in Arizona from a hut near the Grand Canyon. This winter break explore your local markets and artisans for some unique pieces!
