How to Wear Fur Cuffs

Black faux fur cuffs on the sleeves of a black turtleneck with a leather skirt and black crossbody.
So I’ve been on a fur kick lately and decided to wear another one my favourite winter accessories, faux fur cuffs. I actually purchased these a few years back at ASOS. They are very versatile and can be placed on the sleeves of any top or jacket. I usually wear them with a tight fitting top like this turtleneck. I paired this with a dark brown leather skirt, black shoes and a black crossbody bag. What do you think of this outfit? Would you wear fur cuffs?

Faux Fur Vest + Plaid Scarf

Wearing a faux fur vest and  plaid scarf turned sideways.
If you’ve seen some of my other posts you know I’m addicted to fur. I love bright coloured fur, fuzzy pom poms, and many items that may seem a bit much (wait till I get into glitter,) but today I’m wearing a toned down piece. It’s a vintage brown faux fur vest that I’ve had for years. I usually pair it with a white or tan coloured top, but I love how this black turtleneck really makes the brown stand out. The plaid scarf was a Christmas gift to my husband. He’s not into scarves so I figured I’d make use of it. The combination of the faux fur vest and plaid scarf is perfect for the slightly warmer weather today. What do you think of this outfit? Is it something you would wear?

How to Belt a Fur Scarf

Blue and black fur scarf wrapped with skinny belt on waist.
Over the weekend I had a party to attend and wanted to wear my favourite winter accessory. However I didn't want to have to carry the scarf if it became too warm indoors. If you saw last weeks post I showed how to wear this fur scarf over a jacket. For this party I decided to pair it with a short sleeved button down and belt it in the front. This way I could always unbelt it and wrap it around my shoulders if it was a bit chilly indoors. Now of course I wore a jacket over this outfit on the way to the party, but left it in the car so I wouldn't have to carry it. What do you think of the belted fur scarf? Is it something you would wear?

Dressed for the Cold

It is very cold and just lightly snowing here today so I decided to pull out some fun winter wear. I love statement coats and this one is thin but made of tightly knitted wool with embroidery. It is super warm especially over a cashmere turtleneck. I’m not a huge fan of earmuffs, but these provide amazing warmth to my entire head. What do you think of this winter outfit? Are you a fan of ear muffs? Is it snowing where you are today?

How to Style a Furry Scarf over a Winter Coat

A snow storm is just above where I live and it is freezing today. So to keep warm I decided to wear a houndstooth winter coat which I purchased for my grandmother years before she passed. A furry scarf by Unreal fur, which has been my go-to accessory lately, and vintage leather gloves. Underneath I’m wearing a jean shirt under a v-neck sweater. With all of these layers I hope to stay warm during this winter storm.

What to Wear when it's Windy and Cold

It is so cold and windy today I decided to wear warm layers on top and faux leather biker pants on the bottom. Under the coat I'm wearing a cashmere sweater for extra warmth. Although both the coat and sweater are slightly thin, the wool and cashmere layers provide plenty of warmth for the day.

How to Wrap and Tuck a Button Down

Today I wanted to try a new trend that I've seen recently called the "Wrap and Tuck." It's simply wrapping a button down blouse as if you were going to tie it and then tucking it into pants or a skirt. I love how it adds a layering dimension to an outfit. What do you think of this look? Is it something you would wear?

How to Style Striped Trousers - 2 Ways

Striped trousers are a great staple that can be worn all year round. Here I show two ways to style them for the winter. In the first set of photos I paired them with a white long sleeve turtleneck and a black duster.  I think this gives these trousers a very sophisticated vibe.

Black and Tan

Sweater dresses are perfect for the winter. They are so versatile and can be layered for extra warmth. Today I'm wearing a black cable knit sweater dress with a tan jacket with faux fur trim. I love the way the tan stands out when paired with black. I added black socks and ankle boots, and a black purse.  Hanging from the purse is a Tiffany ladybug key ring that I thought would be cute as a bag charm. What do you think?

How to Style Faux Leather Leggings

Leather leggings are a staple item that go with almost anything. For a casual look I usually wear them with an oversized sweater and ankle boots, or a simple white button down. But today I wanted to dress them up a bit so I paired them with a silver sweater and snake accessories. I really love how this look turned out, what do you think?
