Holiday Style: Faux Fur Makes Everything Glam (Even Plaid Shirts)


How to Wear Faux Fur

 (photo credit: J. Birdie Photography)

Just like sequins, feathers and leather, I’ve always been drawn to (faux) fur.  RAWR.  Lucky for me, this is a perfect time of year to find some awesome faux fur pieces, even though I bought that vest I’m wearing at the summer Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Scarves, coats, gloves, vests, boot covers, earmuffs . . . even purses with faux fur seem to be everywhere right now and I couldn’t be happier about it.  I love incorporating fur into outfits as more than just outerwear.  Since I’m always cold, faux fur adds some chic and warmth to my wardrobe.  I’ve already started dressing Greenlea in faux fur as well and it is absolutely adorable!  Bring on the fur.

Faux Fur Vest: (Old) I bought this faux fur vest during the epic #nsale and LOVE it (pockets!).  Here’s a similar one in black and I just found this one that has a hood!

Shirt: (Old) Express has my favorite Portofino shirt in plaid for this season, a super soft oversized plaid shirt and if you’re loving the red I’m eyeing this red and navy plaid flannel or this red and black one.

Jeans: Dark jeans are so slimming and these J Brand jeans are similar in color.  These denim leggings from Express have a flattering mid rise and are super soft and customers raved about these Paige Denim Jeans.

Shoes: (old) A printed shoe is so much more fun than plain black and I’m currently loving the pointy toes.  This pair from Topshop is almost identical to the pair I’m wearing and this Nine West pair comes in a bunch of colors and patterns (including animal print) and has a shorter heel for comfort.

Watch: (old) This Michael Kors watch has been on my wish list for years and I’m loving the rose gold color of this Marc Jacobs watch.

  1. The Ore Dock in Marquette! We were back for Thanksgiving. You forget just how cold it gets there until you experience it again. We were freezing. And I too love all things faux fur this winter. And my 8 year old does too.
