When a new season creeps up, there are so many different kinds of shopping to do. First you need to identify your core wardrobe staples—which will shape your new-season uniform. Then you have to stockpile a new set of basics to go with your core pieces. Then you have to accessorize according to your new look, not to mention the new weather. You might need to adjust your hair and your makeup colors, too. And somewhere in the midst of this you need to throw yourself some curveballs so that nothing’s too predictable or cookie-cutter-cute.
To let you in on a hard-learned secret: we like to make our curveballs nice, big, loud, statement pieces. That’s because looking through our street style lens, we’ve seen time and time again how magical statement-makers can be. They elevate your look, make everything else you’re wearing SO much more fun, and put you on everyone else’s radar as a fashion trailblazer.
This fall, we’re thinking a vintage fur or a Designer Collective faux fur may be just the right unexpected dash. Is that way out of left field for your look? Then we suggest you entertain the idea that much more! Fur (vintage or faux, horsehair or shearling) can come into play in so many different ways. For inspiration, check out a few our favorite street style pics…
