Every time I attend fashion week in New York in February, I fall more in love with eye-catching faux fur. Insanely crazy looking real fur, and faux fur jackets, coats, and vests are a must-have when attending fashion week in the winter. I love how many fun colors and prints there are in faux fur outerwear. It’s full fledged eye candy! It really goes to show, no-one actually needs real fur. You can have more fun with faux; and it is just as warm and cozy!
When I am in New York, everyone wears faux fur over fabulous trousers, skirts, jumpsuits, and designer denim. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, we are a bit more understated, and casual. I love the idea of a “New York street style” worthy faux fur coat translated into California Casual style.
The first time I spotted this coat, I instantly thought it would be perfect to bring to New York in February for fashion week. Not only is it warm and cozy, it has an eye-catching look which plays well with the fashion week crowd. I hate buying something and only wearing it once, so I decided to go ahead and buy it, but style it to wear here at home.
I love how this faux fur coat looks with casual jeans, and my go-to velvet booties. By pairing it with an understated, basic black tee, the outfit shows off the coat without being too loud. This is turning out to be a great elevated casual outfit I can wear often here in the Bay Area; and this coat will most likely make it into my suitcase this February for fashion week. In New York, I will use it to top off an outfit, not be the outfit.
My friend Dawn, from Fashion Should be Fun, took these photos last week when we met at Santana Row for brunch. It was fun to hang out with her, and enjoy a yummy brunch at The Village California Bistro. This coat was perfect for the cool, rainy weather we had that day!
Are you loving eye-catching faux fur this fall/winter season?
