There is this thing going on in fashion at the moment. It's about more is more (and not "less is more" as the saying goes), with texture and oversize being all the rage. You will notice a huge influx of fluffy jackets, fuzzy gilets and lots of accessories which need to be part of your new season wardrobe.
I absolutely love wearing a big faux fur jacket with jeans and boots during winter. The jacket makes a statement, and it keeps you cosy. What's not to love about that? Well, you'll love the idea even more when you see what bargains I have found for you.
The full length fluff jacket is certainly for the brave when it comes to fashion. I like it over a leather mini skirt, polo neck and high ankle boots. But, you can wear it more formally (should you have a winter wedding) over a dress. One thing you need to be aware of is falling into the trap of looking like you are wearing a dressing gown, so avoid this one with more casual attire.
The gilet is one of the top selling faux fur pieces every season. This year as we are all about the Seventies, the colours have steared away from black and moved towards deep orange and brown. Gilets are great over light knits; and they really only work on dry days when the rain stays away. If you like wearing day time dresses, a gilet will add a dash of Woodstock.
If you prefer to stay with more neutral colours, take a look at winter pastels as well as grey. They work beautifully over dark colours and can break up an outfit (especially if you live in black all winter like I do mostly). Add to that the whole shearling thing which has been a catwalk hit.
