I love all the faux fur that has popped up in fashion. It allows me to feel warm and cozy without an ethical dilemma. We're going to make it easy to wear and enjoy this trend. The weather here in NYC has turned chilly and it's a perfect time to add a few layers.

Pomegranate Mimosa

Always brunch! And what better cocktail to have with brunch than a mimosa? With the holidays quickly approaching, gatherings will be happening more frequently as we focus more on quality time with family and friends. If you have little ones like I do, evenings can be hard to pull more

For this look I raided my closet. I paired it with a white tee, old Ralph Lauren belt, jeans and RL boots. So basically the fresh fall look only cost $69! The vest came with a knit sweater belt, but I like the trim look of a wider belt with fur.

Understated Ways to Style Fur Accessories

Now let's talk about how you are going to wear fur this fall. Let's go over the rules:

1. Don't go overboard. Pick an item and call it a day. Scarf, sweater, hat, or vest. Unless you have your own reality show, a little fur goes a long way.
2. Be a friend to faux. We believe in being as PETA-friendly as possible.
3. Keep the rest of the look neutral. Gray, camel, black--these are all great colors to pair with your furry outfit.
4. Proportion matters. Fur is going to add some bulk to your frame. Keep the rest of your outfit sleek. Petite women especially need to be wary of being looked like a bear swallowed them.
5. Accessories should be minimal. Earrings are fine, but a chunky necklace would be overkill.
