Vests and Cranberry: How to Style Your Fur (and avoid looking like a drug lord)

















FUR VEST: Forever 21  ::  DENIM: Current/Elliott  ::  SHOES: Pour la Victoire, similar style here  ::  BLOUSE: Splendid, similar style here  ::  HAT: Forever 21

Annnnnnd my hat obsession continues. How amazing is this fedora?! Forever 21 killed it. Seriously. It killed the cranberry fedora fashion game because this glorious bad boy is under $20, fits like a dream, and looks like money. I’ve also always loved fur and faux fur but find that it’s hard to find a piece that doesn’t make me look like a shaggy yak or an undersized gorilla, so when I found this perfectly constructed vest I was SO excited. Even the hubs, who usually asks me if I a) just killed something or b) am trying to be a 70’s drug lord every time I wear fur liked this look! That’s a huge win. Seriously. Plus I feel like I’m ballin’ cause hey, that vest could be real…no one will ever know 😉

The fur vest created some awesome dimension for the fedora and then I kept the rest of the look with simple with some super distressed jeans, black heels, and a white blouse. When styling with fur I find that less is generally more. Try to keep colors muted and avoid a lot of patterns or designs so that your fur piece can really shine and be the star of the show. If overdone, you may end up looking like a confused nouveau riche socialite or  and unless that’s the goal, keep it simple. Definitely going to be wearing this for the holidays too, the color and the fur feel super festive (and with the weather in the 60’s and cloudy today I can totally pretend that it’s cold out).   Happy Wednesday babes!! What do you guys think about this look? Is faux fur a yay or a nay?
