WOWZA! This incredible Zara red toggle dress literally screamed CHRISTMAS to me. I’ve always adored Christmas Nutcrackers and Red Soldiers; this popping red maxi dress channels these traditional Christmas ornaments in a fashion forward way. The elongated length adds elegance, while the black toggles add a unique twist. The distinctive neckline is also a beautiful detail. I styled the remarkable dress with thigh high black faux-leather boots with gold stud details. The black faux-leather feather trimmed gloves and black faux fur pillbox hat are stylish accessories to keep warm, while the final yet VERY ESSENTIAL cherry on top is a Gucci red lip. I’m feeling very festive!
Happy New Year! I wanted to start this post with a huge thank you to all of my followers for supporting me and taking interest in my posts. Fashion is an absolute love of mine and there’s nothing more rewarding than the proof of my blog captivating visitors. The first post to kickoff 2018 is this LASULA ‘Green Fur’ jacket. I’m loving the widespread use of unusual colours in fashion. The deep green of the faux fur is an eye-catcher – a colour that I adore. The green tone is perfectly paired with an all-black outfit. The lightness of the fur fibres allows the material to flow aesthetically in the wind, revealing the multitude of tones of the green jacket. The jacket can see you through glamorous events in the early wintery months of this year or can be dressed down for a casual chic style. Wearing faux fur adds charm and an element of excitement to an outfit.
GREEN FAUX FUR JACKET
Looking toward Winter – which is just around the corner – this red fur coat on Mango online caught my eye. Despite the hefty price, my inner Jack Frost was calling for this key piece and with red being this Winter’s hottest colour I couldn’t resist. I’ve always been a huge fan of red especially paired with military style accessories. Here I styled the fur with leather look leggings, a thin black jumper with pearl cuff detail, cream and black patent boots and a black military style cap. Military chic is just so stylish and very easy to achieve, especially with Winter fashion. Layering is my favourite aspect of Winter fashion, it enables any outfit to look fashionable. The coat is high quality; the faux fur is luxuriously soft, the crystal embellishment adds decor to the plain red surface, while the oversized lapel adds a dramatic neckline. The beauty of a faux fur coat is that it can be dressed up with all black à la 1950‘s Starlet or just simply with jeans for a relaxed but warm Winter’s day. Bring on the chill ….
