Is there a better time to wear leather and fur than during the fall season? I can’t even begin to tell you guys how in love I am with this black faux fur coat that was sent to me from Windsor Store! Before I get into the reasons why you all should have this coat and why it is a staple item for the fall…I will tell you all a little story about it! I don’t know if you are aware, but I attend the Fashion Institute of Technology and I major in Fashion Business Management. I wore this jacket to my Product Development class on Monday morning. My professor for that class is beyond knowledgeable, and has so much experience in the industry. This Monday morning, I was taking my midterm and my teacher interrupted me to ask me if my coat was real fur. I replied “no, it’s faux” and he said “wow…I would never think that…what a great piece!” This was coming from a man who has been in the industry for years and knows clothing inside and out, and is a good detective when it comes to determining authenticity! I felt like a million bucks after that, especially considering the fact that this coat is under $70!
Faux fur is a simple & elegant piece that is also cost friendly. It goes with everything and can add that luxe factor to an outfit! I don’t know what it is but when I wear fur I always want to pair it with leather pants. The two work hand in hand! A faux fur coat, slick leather pants, and booties is such a classic, easy, and simple fall look that is almost impossible to get wrong! To add a little more spice to my look, I went with cheetah pumps which without a doubt served as the outfit completer! Trix couldn’t wait to sport her cheetah sweater and cheetah collar. She looked beyond adorable! Speaking of Trix, she received an amazing package last night from For Pets Only. They spoiled her beyond belief! To check out the amazing pieces they sent her, be sure to watch my Instagram Stories! Also, of course as always…don’t forget to shop my look below!
