STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Look Fabulous in Faux Fur

This winter one trend has stuck out to me more than the rest: fur vests. When they were first introduced I never thought this trend would actually make it to the University of Iowa campus but I was wrong. I was also wrong when I thought I disliked this trend because I have actually grown to love it! Not only will a fur vest keep you warm when the temperatures are cold but it makes a definite fashion statement.

I caught this Fashionista leaving the public library looking like a stylish diva in her black long sleeve dress, fur vest and fringe boots. In my opinion, every Fashionista should have a long sleeve black dress in her winter wardrobe. It can look great on its own glamed up with accessories or look comfy cozy layered with a sweater and knit tights. No matter how you wear a black dress it’s the perfect backdrop for any outfit and in the winter long sleeves are not only appropriate but necessary. However, what caught my attention wasn’t her dress, it was her vest. What I love most about her faux fur was the versatility of it. This vest could easily be dressed up for a night out or dressed down for a day running around outside in the wintry weather. Her fur wasn’t out of control fluffy; it was softer and relaxed, which I think helped make it more tame for daytime apparel. She also kept warm with tan knit gloves that paired up nicely with the rest of the outfit.

Be as trend setting as this Fashionista and wear a fur vest this winter. Not only will you stay warm you’ll look fabulous!

Hint: Try Forever 21 for this affordable faux fur vest. I love the cream color and the high collar. As for fringe boots try these Minnetonka moccasins that come in an assortment of colors. If you’re feeling really daring and willing to splurge Free People has some awesome fringe heels.
