When it comes to having a sweet sartorial November you basically need two things: a warm autumn sun (checked) and your massive fashion obsession that moment (checked). Being quite a predictable gal, the latter is not that hard to guess in my case. Er… FAUX FUR!
So here I am, again, standing in front of you all with my new style crush, which again involves the aforementioned 2014-2015 trend: this Two Tone Shaggy Faux Fur Coat from CHOIES. They’ve been so kind to gift me with it and with the fabulous Black Crochet Lace Short Sleeve Mesh T-shirt, which I’m practically in love with. It’s so retro yet trendy, slightly mysterious, but chic that I can’t resist it. It’s got a bit of that Dolce & Gabbana vibe to it, and I confess I’ve already worn it twice: on Halloween + on Monday’s photoshoot. Why everyone needs a faux fur this autumn? Because they’re the easiest style statement ever, and they’re perfect for this crispy sunny weather, when a blazer is too thin and a winter coat too thick. Besides, they go with anything.
My shaggy faux fur is definitely a statement, so I chose to wear it with my skinny jeans, the crochet top, and my ankle boots. It also looks fabulous with dresses and high boots, or an all-black outfit. Quality wise it’s great, very light, versatile, it’s got hidden buttons for when it gets chilly. Just make sure you choose your size wisely. While mine is an M, and fits great on my body, I wish I got an L for longer sleeves. But then again, midi sleeves are quite on trend so… I’ll live.
Yes it’s a statement coat, or as my photographer said, quite a bird like attire (what does he know anyway?), but it’s fun. It looks cool and according to the world wide web every blogger is jumping on this birdie style wagon, with this coat per se, and with the feathers trend I was telling you about. Being a fun girl myself I did go all the way on my last week’s feathers mood, and took the lyrics of Nelly Furtado’s ‘I’m like a bird’ song quite literally when – at my photographer plea – I posed like a bird. That, and I also dipped my feet into the freezing river. In November. Cause why the hell not? If you make it a day on the bridge, under the bridge, on the pier, by the river – go all the way. Have fun with fashion and shooting for blog posts.
Another thing I love about this coat is its two tone color and the shaggy style of the white part, which does make it all look like it’s feathery, especially when it’s windy. LOVE it. Underneath it I rocked the simple and quite sheer crochet lace top, which is, I think one of the most retro-trendy-versatile pieces I own. It goes with anything from a polished pencil skirt, a midi full skirt (for that D&G look I was telling you about), to jeans of all sorts. Yes it may seem racy being so sheer, but truth is, it looks fabulous, and if you want to cover up more you always have the bustier choice underneath. For an evening out this is the top to go for.
Quality wise I love how delicate it feels, a bit crispy, it’s long enough to be tucked it and not leave a bare midriff, it’s got a great cut: it’s fitted yet slightly loose. It’s perfect. For more absolutely top notch fashionable clothes check out CHOIES shop.
