how to style fur under a coat

{Zara coat (chic quilted style), Forever 21 vest (classic option), Forever 21 leggings (another faux option),  Zara loafers, Tory Burch 'Robinson' chain strap mini bag, lipstick: Rose Hip by Milani}

If you didn't already assume- I love to layer. So I'm thoroughly shocked that I didn't think to pair these two layers earlier on this winter. I generally wear this bulky faux fur vest over a jacket, but never under. When I tried it, it just made sense, and in my opinion a bit chicer and more elegant. I even got a "Your'e looking a little like Mrs. Robinson today" from the bf- I'll take that as a good thing. With the pops of color, and a little chain purse worn cross-body style this possibly intimidating-to-wear look gets streamlined, and takes on a fresh spin on winter-wear.  Keep the rest of this over-the-top look simple- pair with skin-tight leggings and flat loafers to make the peek of fur under this fabulous coat the star of the show!

One day left to enter my Tart giveaway!!

  3. You look so chic! I've tried to layer a fur under a coat before but I look huge! I think I just didn't have the right fur or coat on. This definitely makes me want to re-attempt this look!
