a touch of


Fur hat: Vintage
Polo neck: Zara
Jeans: All Saints
Boots: H&M


A touch of fur. That's all I need.  Just a touch.

The high street has gone mad for fur this season. Faux fur is everywhere! Just take Topshop - when I was browsing through the Oxford Circus store, I must of come across about ten different fur items ...  faux fur headbands, biker jackets, bags, snoods, beanies, not mentioning  fur faux ankle socks  (I am not joking - check them out here). It really is everywhere. 

I am a big fan of the fur trend - I think it can add to an outfit in a number of ways -  it is super feminine and sophisticated  helping create that  "Paris-chic" look we all strive for... IF used correctly. I think it is a major case of less is more.

In the piccies above I am wearing my aunt's vintage fur hat which I found hidden away in her attic. I have teamed the hat with my charcoal grey Zara polo neck, boots and skinny jeans. For me, it is key to keep colour to a minimum when wearing fur. That way it really stands out as a piece in its' own right.

  7. That fur hat looks rather cute on you, I must say. REALLY suits you! And yes faux fur continues to grow and become increasingly popular every autumn/winter! I like it though.
