I’m not sure if it’s because I have a cold or if it’s because the temperature has dropped to around 50 degrees but it’s really starting to feel like winter outside. Cold weather makes me extremely restless, disheveled and dowdy – craving layers and layers of clothing. I partly despise winter (so much) due to the lack of glamorous clothing options (that are affordable) and partly because people start dressing down all the time. Gone are hot summer nights where girls wear dresses and heels and men and are bronzed and wear nice fitted shirts. Instead, they are replaced by people in puffy coats, jeans, countless varieties of Ugg boots and sweatshirts.
While I used to view faux fur as gaudy and trashy, I’m really looking forward to bundling up in this trend. Retailers such as Net-A-Porter, Shopbop, and Neiman Marcus have all helped revamp faux fur into something more glamorous and less as something people only buy when they can’t afford the real thing.
Stores like Nordstrom, Asos, Forever21 and many others have made it affordable to own more than one faux fur piece this winter.
