Spring Ahead in your Current Wardrobe- Faux Fur Edition

21Mar12

As EBF’s Transition Pieces week progresses, we hope you’re finding great styling tips and ideas to give your closet new uses and pairings. We love hearing the snap of a price tag being removed from a new garment as much as the next girl but scaling back is a mission for both of us this year. Taking investment pieces, like a great faux fur vest, and switching out their supporting items is not only cost effective but increases the value of existing wardrobe items.

Transitioning a faux fur vest from Winter to Spring could be a little challenging. More often than not, these pieces are super dense and cause a little bit of an internal heat wave if the outside temp is over 50 degrees. There are certainly ways to reduce your inner volcano from erupting and keeping your face flush while rocking this piece.

Lauren’s styling tips to Spring faux fur ahead

Item 1: Boho dress

Instead of pairing your vest with a winter frock and tights, scan your Spring dresses for the perfect duo. I love the sleeves on this dress and the belt options!

Item 2: Bright Crochet Tunic

A lightweight, airy and colorful tunic is just what the doctor ordered under anything faux fur this spring. The color of this tunic is major and one of my musts for spring.

Item 3: Patterned Tee

Classic, comfy and chic all at the same time, need I say more?

Leather leggings are the ultimate transition piece from winter to spring. I love love love the idea of wearing them with a men’s style v-neck tee shirt, a faux fur vest, and simple flats. Super chic and perfect for a spring day!

The perfect way to add a pop of color to an outfit of faux fur and dark jeans!
