Winter Style: Faux Fur

Nothing gives me more pleasure than being able to remix and ‘shop’ items in my closet to create multiple looks depending on the occasion.  It’s a challenge that I genuinely enjoy and find rewarding.  When I shop, I love to get classic, trendy, and versatile items so that I can mix and match them within my wardrobe to create a multitude of outfits.


The outfit below was completely created from shopping my closet.  You all have seen the slacks, shirt, hat, and faux fur vest here before, but in different ways.  Being able to maximize your wardrobe in this way is great if you are budgeting and if you are serious about creating and identifying your style personality.


How to Wear It

For this go around, I decided to focus my outfit on my statement piece: my faux fur vest.  I kept the other elements of my outfit simple yet interesting.  I paired my vest with an off white chiffon shirt with embellishments at the button seam, my wide-legged slacks, animal print skinny belt, snake-skin purse and my infamous black fedora.  The subtle mixing of texture in my outfit keeps my overall look interesting while keeping my faux fur vest the focal point.


Do you shop your closet? What is your favorite thing to shop in your closet?
