TREND: Faux Fur

Halloween kicked off the holiday season with a reason to be daring and go wild with an outfit, but with Thanksgiving right around the corner, the fun keeps on rolling and so do the festive outfits. While it’s no doubt the busiest time of the year – many of us will be preparing to travel, running around campus to finish class projects, or gathering presents at busy department stores – we want to dress for the occasion keeping comfort as our main objective.

On a busy Tuesday lunch-hour, I spotted this Fashionista wearing the coolest leopard print faux fur beret. As she sat outside the University Center Building on the downtown Phoenix campus, it was inevitable that anyone, even those in a rush, couldn't pass without taking a second glance at the pretty headpiece. On my second glance, I realized that not only was her beret super chic, her outfit was overall lovely: a solid ivory oversized sweater paired with dark jeans and black ankle boots- complimentary to her leopard print hat.

Hints of faux fur, like the one on this Fashionista’s beanie, are perfect for any festivity this season. It’s comfortable, and even on a casual dress day, it looks elegant. Whether it’s a faux fur vest, scarf, coat, bag or hat – the possibilities are endless. A faux fur trapper hat is a classic accessory if you’re traveling somewhere with cooler temps – perhaps Flagstaff, Arizona. But remember to keep it simple like this Fashionista did, letting her faux fur beret be the main attraction of her outfit. Try wearing faux fur to the next festivity you attend and you will be the life of the party no doubt.

TREND: Faux Fur

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Indiana. It’s so beautiful this time of year with the leaves turning from green to orange, but what happened to the fall weather? It’s typical to go from summer, to fall then to winter; however in Indiana, you never know what you are going to get. I feel we have gone from hot to cold without any in between. And now that the morning temperatures are dropping down to the 40s and 50s, it’s hard to figure out what to wear for the day. 

I spotted this Fashionista at last week’s Retail and Design Forum dressed to impress in an awesome faux fur vest. Her outfit is the perfect solution to this wacky Indiana weather. If all you want to do is wrap up in something cozy on these chilly mornings then faux fur is the feel good fashion you are looking for. Take a look at how this Fashionista put together her outfit. It’s all about layers. She has on a long sleeve pink cardigan with a cream tank. On the bottom she wears black "jeggings" and boots. This Fashionista shows us that a faux fur topper will look great layered over any outfit. A fuzzy vest is especially nice because it can be easily taken on and off. You can find your own faux fur in a wild animal print like today's Fashionista’s, or in neutral greys and browns

Hint: If you aren’t looking for full on fur then just add texture with your accessories. A great piece I would suggest trying is a faux fur stole or scarf. A piece like this will add a hint of texture and keep you warm and cozy. You could also try finding a vest or jacket that is lined in fur for subtle detail.
