STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Friend or Faux?

When I was younger, I never could understand the whole daylight savings time changes. I never knew when I was going to lose an hour or gain another, but thank goodness for smartphones. One way I remember it now is, “spring forward and fall back”. So it definitely sucks to lose an hour, but we all have to look on the bright side and remember it stays a lot lighter late in the night. It also is a huge reminder that spring is coming, and that means summer is close too.

It's tricky though isn't it? It's sunny and beautiful out one day, and the next could be cold and absolutely miserable. The weather has been entirely inconsistent because Mother Nature is too busy trying to figure out what season to stick to. I spotted a Fashionista that managed to beat Mother Nature in her cruel games and balanced her chic style according to the weather. 

The Fashionista is wearing a faux-fur sweater in gray from Armani Exchange. The Fashionista chooses to stay true to herself while she also enjoys trying the latest trend, faux-fur. It was a perfect balance and compromise for the chilly spring day. While browsing through Armani Exchange, I stumbled upon an adorable sweater that is a super popular trend right now. The knit cropped sweater from Armani Exchange goes perfect with shorts for a warmer day or chic with skinny jeans for a chillier day.

The Fashionista is also wearing jeggings from Hollister Co. in a dark wash. In my personal experience, Hollister Co. bottoms seemed to run a little small so definitely check out the size chart before purchasing.

She tops it off with adorable Dr. Martens in maroon. Dr. Martens offers a variety of styles such as boots, booties, pumps, etc. The online website offers a lot of different styles and colors, so I would check it out.

So while Mother Nature's sorts out her mood swings, let's hang tight for spring to finally arrive. I know I can't wait till I start wearing my new spring wardrobe!

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Friend or Faux?

On my travels this week, I was fortunate enough to come across not one, but two Fashionistas expertly nailing the decadent faux fur trend. I was impressed with their ability to not only look fabulous individually, but complement each other’s outfits – truly showcasing their sisterly solidarity!

Faux fur has been huge over the last autumn/winter period, as it was perfect for oozing style whilst staying warm. Even as we move into spring and summer, some of the winter chills can still catch us by surprise, allowing faux fur to be worn effectively as a transition piece. Today’s first Fashionista (left) rocked both the faux fur and animal print trends with her gorgeous cropped jacket from Lipsy, whilst keeping the rest of the outfit fairly simple (I loved her camel coloured trousers from Warehouse!) Her friend then continued the furry theme beautifully with her stunning Topshop hat and shearling coat, which was from Camden Market. She also kept the remainder of her look fairly minimal, with black opaque tights, tan flats and a tan Mulberry bag. Whether intentional or not, this week’s Fashionistas co-ordinated not only with faux fur but with this season’s neutral colour palette, scoring an all-round winner for fashion and friends!

Hint: I recommend a faux fur stole like this vintage one, as it is so versatile at this time of year. It can be worn in the daytime for extra warmth with jeans and a jacket, or combined with any evening outfit to make you feel like a movie star!
