Hey guys! It’s that time of year when spring is around the corner, but there is still a chill in the air– the perfect time to scoop up an awesome, statement making faux fur jacket like the one I’m wearing — ON SALE! See how topping an otherwise normal outfit, like a simple dress and booties or sneaks, or ever jeans and a sleek and simple turtleneck– can be a totally fashion forward, chic outfit when topped with a cool faux fur? As usual, it’s all about the texture mix. Don’t even worry about it being too loud, or too much– keep the underlying outfit base simple, neutral, like I did above– and you’ll be super happy with how it brings the look to life, I promise! Shop the jackets below by following the links I hooked you up with…My exact jacket above is the second jacket in the second row, on super sale at Forever 21!

I wore this look (60 degree Decembers in New York call for bare legs as long as possible!) to my 20 week ultrasound check up this past week–I knew I wanted to wear this Zara faux fur jacket, so I kept the rest of the look fairly simple with no frills or patterns– this grey simple form fitting (bump showing!) dress from Forever 21 with my fave white sneaks and a ponytail. I love the kind of glam rocker vibe of the jacket contrasted with the simple tomboyish feel of the rest of the pieces, and can’t wait to wear this jacket with SO many other looks this winter. Another one of my fave ways to wear faux fur is over distressed jeans and a vintagey looking tee– and surprisingly, I RARELY wear a jacket like this over fancy stuff like a cocktail dress — I guess I tend to gravitate a little more to the unexpected. I rounded up a few other black/navy faux fur jackets similar to mine (all my exact pieces are shoppable above) along with other similar items for you to create a look like the one above!
Have a great week!
File this dress under best jackpot find recently– at only $13, this Zara striped number is at the top of my list of things I want to wear right now. I’m loving anything high neck, mock neck, turtleneck-y right now– a refreshing and sophisticated change from years of low cut everything– and my newly sprouted baby bump (19 weeks !) is inspiring me to show it off in anything form fitting. For any petite preggos like me, wearing anything too baggy or tent-like at this point (and I’ve been know to love oversized boyish cuts ) runs the risk of making me look muy grande all over.
I styled this look with crisp white sneaks (don’t think your old dad-like New Balances or running sneaks will do the trick here– the key to sneaks with a dress is that they are clean, white preferably and simple in design) for a boyish, athleisure-ish vibe and my other fave cheapie score, this tan suede Forever 21 jacket to pull the look together. Overall, part 90s (stripes, even with a hint of glitter thread!!!), part 70s, kinda tomboyish, a little preggo– 100% me.
I’ve rounded up a few similar high neck body con dress picks for you guys– they’re great for day to night, work to drinks and dinner, and are great for layering under blazers, jackets, and sweaters. Pair a dress like this with ankle booties (making sure there are a few inches of skin between the hem of the dress and the top of the bootie!), sneaks like I did here, loafers or a funky lace up heel.
Have a great week!
