This week, let's talk about wearing fur. I'm not talking about real vs. faux fur, or whether wearing fur is "right" or "wrong," I'm talking about how to rock a vintage piece of fur clothing in your everyday wardrobe. There is no doubt that fur can be warm. With these chilling temperatures, I've noticed a lot more fur trim on sweaters, jackets and hats, and that got my fashion thoughts churning.
I am lucky enough to have inherited a few fur collars and a couple fur hats from my grandmother. I dug them out the other day, with the plan to see if I could incorporate them into my wardrobe. Vintage is all the rage - right? For this week's post, I started with an easy one. It's a vintage faux-jaguar fur collar. It attaches easily with pins.
I decided to keep it low-key and classic, with a simple black cashmere v-neck sweater and skinny jeans. I loved the funky casual look and felt very chic. The collar definitely added interest to a plain black sweater. I chose not to wear a necklace with the collar . . .less is more sometimes. I think I would have liked this look with some gold jewelry . . .like a vintage chunky gold charm bracelet and small link choker.
Here's how it came together:
Jeans - Ann Taylor Modern Skinny Jeans
Sweater - Eddie Bauer Cashmere (old)
Collar - Vintage Fur from Grandmom's Collection
Boots - Aerosoles (old - they have been re-heeled once)
Bracelets - Alex and Ani and Tiffany
Earrings - Kate Spade
I have a more luxurious one to try next, but I'm not sure what to style it
