Faux Fur and Pleather


Now where I live, the weather is hardly ever cold enough to strut this coat around day in and day out. But trust me, I am an opportunist. I wear this coat every chance I get. My favorite thing about this faux fur is how versatile it is. It gives a luxe appeal to any outfit but because it is a statement piece, you can style it for a night out on the town or take a more casual approach as shown here.


Although the coat completes the look, each garment and accessory helps tell the story of this casual downtown style. For starters, a basic solid tee is the perfect choice to balance the outfit. For the pants, be bold and go for a pleather pant. Pleather is a seasonal material so you definitely want to wear it while you can. Plus, it will give you an edge that your denim otherwise may not. Now for the finishing touches, boots are a must for an all day affair downtown. Any type of motorcycle or combat boot will work.  As for accessories, mixing metals is a must. I have never been one to mix match metals, but when it comes to pairing gunmetal with silver, or bronze with gold, I say yes.
Other than the fact that I am a proud faux fur owner, faux fur is not nearly as pricey as real fur. Also you won't feel guilty for wearing a real animal and right now is the best time to buy...faux furs are on sale!
