Perhaps one of the only good things about the cold weather that Syracuse brings is the fact that we can now strut around in jackets and go shopping for that perfect seasonal jacket. For me, jackets have this certain luxurious feel to them that radiates when you wear one. Winter jackets, especially, and even more so fur jackets can be extremely important staple items in one’s wardrobe. Fur jackets, faux fur jackets and jackets with fur accents have exploded onto the scene this season. This Fashionista had on a beautiful leather jacket with a fur shawl collar. Pairing the jacket with black skinny’s and a pair of black ankle boots created an incredibly sleek and clean look. The contrast of the fur against the leather truly creates a statement and an edgy elegance.
Although you may not be able to find this Fashionista’s exact jacket because she bought it in Korea, you can check out Guess – among many other brands – which has a lot of winter jackets this season combining leather and faux fur and other materials with faux fur. Jackets with fur accents are a good way to go if you maybe are looking for real fur because with only accents of fur the jacket will be less expensive than an entirely fur jacket. Vests are also a great alternative and are super chic and can be layered over almost anything! I think that these kinds of jackets and vests are in fact an important staple item in your winter wardrobe because they are so versatile. They can be worn in a dressy or casual setting depending on how you style the rest of your outfit.
Hint: Want to wear fur but in a maybe more modest manner? Try experimenting with accessories that incorporate fur! Hats with fur trims or accents, scarves and gloves should all be easy to find winter gear. For those who may be looking for some over the top fur head wear check out Spirithoods.com!
