I have a confession to make. This season I couldn’t help but fall for the faux fur trend. I’ve been eyeing up a faux fur vest since what feels like ages! Until I finally spotted this gorgeous SuperDry vest (which is by the way heavily discounted right now).
Feeling very happy about my discovery I also snapped up a beautiful red suede skirt! Red and black, that’s an easy colour combo to pull off I thought to myself. Which is partly true – you can’t really go wrong with these two colours.
However, I found myself struggling with two things:
First of all, I needed to add another colour to soften up the look. I found the red and black combo to harsh for my light complexion. (I really need some tan… seriously)
Secondly, it was so freezing! And I didn’t have a matching sweater to pull off this look. And a faux fur vest is still a vest…
STYLING IDEAS FOR FAUX FUR VEST
That’s when I had the idea to pair it with my leather jacket. It fits the style and it’s texture creates a beautiful contrast with faux fur.
I always try to balance out my outfits. When I pick a strong colour like red, I have the urge to bring it back somewhere else. That’s why I think this look just wouldn’t work without the red beret. I picked it up from an independent designer in Camden Market a few years ago, but you could easily get crafty and create your own one with a pretty brooch.
Lastly, I absolutely need to talk about my L’Intervalle boots! I don’t know what it is about them, but they make my legs look super long… (#modelgoals) Plus, I love the metallic heel!
My second styling suggestion for the faux fur vest is to pair it with a gorgeous sweater! Ideally, in lighter grey colours. I’ve put together a style inspiration at the bottom of this post for you! Hope you like it.
Are you also obsessed with the faux fur trend? If yes, what’s your favourite way to style it?
