I must say that this winter has been pretty harsh for America, however, through the brutal snow storms and below 0 degree temperatures, we were still able to stay true to our most fashionable styles. Two of my favorite trends from this season have been the long trench coat and fur coats/vest.
The trendy long trench coats are great in winter because you can stay warm without having too much overpowering your body. Trench coats are perfect for those fashionistas in business that need to stay warm going to and from the office. This coat goes great with any style, and are perfect for any body type. The trench coat is a classic and will never go out of style.
The next trend we have seen over the winter months is that of animal fur. I personally am not a big fan of animal fur, however you can never go wrong with faux fur. It gives you the same style as that of a real fur coat and is much less expensive. It also gives you the same style seen on your favorite celebrities. My favorite is the fur vest. They are so chic and can be dressed up 100 different ways. It doesn’t matter if you’re going to a formal event, a night on the town, or just going to work at Forever 21. A great way to style up a fur vest is to pair it with a basic sweater or long sleeve shirt, skinny jeans or your favorite leggings, and knee high boots [ or your favorite pumps]. When wearing a fur coat, you don’t have to dress it up. The coat pretty much speaks for its self, especially when wearing one that’s longer in length. So as we continue to battle these brutal temperatures grab your favorite faux fur and look fabulous!
