Fur files…

Ways to wear faux fur throughout December.

With temperatures steadily dropping here in NY, it is the perfect time to bring out the faux fur. You can sport faux fur in many different styles such as vests, jackets and accessories. And this little luxury can be worn during day and evening to dress up or down.

Check out some great ways to sport faux fur during December.

I love this look below on this miniature fashionista… Pairing a vest over long sleeve knit with shorts and tights is very chic.

Small touches of faux fur on pieces of clothing such as blazers creates a touch of luxury to an everyday classic item.

I love the touch of Faux Fur on the sleeves of this stylish jacket below!

Faux fur vests are completely versatile! I love how the same vest can be worn with jeans or trouser pants and create a different look.  The lovely Rachel Zoe even states this herself and always shows great style when she wears faux fur vests. She has stated that this item can be a great LBD replacement during this season by pairing it with a silk blouse and tuxedo pants and booties. Read more HERE.

Faux fur accessories is a great addition to any look during this season. Have fun with it and make it your own.

Try something different with your faux fur buy putting it UNDER your blazer versus on top to create a different look. This is uniquely stylish.

The detachable faux fur shawl collar is a great addition to any jacket and it can give an elevated look. This can also be removed for more subtlety.

Take a style tip from Anna Wintor with adding a pop of color to the fur.

Are these styles you would Rock or Knock?

Be sure to share ways you choose to wear this trend.

Purple Reign..

The color purple is a go to color for fall.

 

When the fall trend report came out months ago Pantone stated this season would be “A palette of many moods.” One of those moods include the exotic color of Acai also known as purple!

Purple is everywhere this season and will continue as we transition into winter. This bold color is even showing up in the world of make-up!

Eyebrow jewelry is a new trend this season and the color purple is making a big statement with it!

The richness and many hues of this color can not only transition a wardrobe but also alter someone’s mood. The color purple is known as royalty and when worn it can give you a sense of mystery, boldness and a certain feel of power.

Stella McCartney:

Even in evening wear the color purple is shown. I love the gowns from Oscar de la Renta

Jean Paul Gaultier brought haute couture to this royal color.

I love that this bold color has even made a debut on the red carpet!

In menswear the color purple ranges from subtly to bold fashion looks… check them out below

Are you sporting this color this fall and will you be one of those transitioning it into winter?

Share how you wear this royal color.

EXTENDED by demand – Wear it Wednesday

EXTENDED by demand – Wear It Wednesday for Kids!!

Can’t forget about the kids:-) By demand, I’ve created a kids edition for Warm & Cozy.

When the tempature begins to drop outside and the leaves began to fall, our outfits will too transition. Question presented was “How to dress kids warm, cozy and COMFORTABLE!”

Well AttractiveMommie, the best way to keep the kids comfortable while keeping them warm is answered below…

great

///

Here are my Top 5 ways to keep cuties warm, stylish and comfortable.

1. Make sure the outside gear is double and triple lined therefore you don’t have to add as much bulkiness underneath. I love these parkas  from Dolce & Gabbana Bambino Kids Collection for extra warm with lots of style:

omg this will be my child one day!

2. Layer them up!! When dressing the kiddos in layers it gives them the option to remove a cardigan, scarf and or Sherpa lined jackets when becoming too warm at school. Then when time to depart, they can add it back on under jacket to fight off the wind. Remember, they are miniature versions of ourselves so layer them as you would do yourself.

Mad Hatter style!!

Fall Hats! From beanies, ball caps and even berets, hats can add edge, femininity, strength or just straight cool to your outfit. Check out some ways to wear hats and share if you would rock it or knock it!

The baseball hat trend:

During Fall 2013 Hervé Léger by Max Azria  baseball caps were showcased in a more sleek, non team traditional type of way. This “Borrowed from the boys” look can give a sexy tomboy look to any hot night on the town look.

From the runway to the streets, chic chicks find great ways to sport this trend.

Beanies simple or with fur attachments are a hat oldie but goodie  that returns every fall season.

The Fedora. Worn across genders in bold or basic colors throughout multiple seasons but seen in influx during fall. It ranges in brim size but the classic shorter brim is mostly common.

The beautiful velvet brim Maison Michel fedora worn by Elena Perminova is simply divine! Check the photo captured and posted on fashionising.com.

Elena Perminova’s fedora

Bowler style hat is also known as the derby. This 1850’s hat still stands strong that adds a modern look to this vintage hat during this fall season.

The military inspired French style hat also known as a beret can be found all throughout this season as the go to accessory for fall.

Great way to update this vintage look with luxury for less is by adding a brooch to it like shown below.

Turbans which were known as a religious millinery hat has been around for many years and will remain. Although the basis does not come from fashionable accessories, it has become that throughout many seasons. Rock this in bold colors or prints for sass to the fall wardrobe.

What hats are your go to accessory for fall?

Whichever you choose, share a fun and inspiring way you wear these trends this fall season.

Ten Fall back Fashion ideas to rock! 

From pastel colored coats to mid-century suit styled skirts, there are plenty new fashion trends to try this fall.

1. Pastel Colored Coats

Louis Vuitton introduced this beautiful pastel pink coat that will add a touch of luxury and femininity to any girl’s wardrobe.

Valentin Yudashkin:

2. Menswear fabrics

Taking menswear traditional prints such as hounds-tooth and even pinstripes then add it to feminine fabrics and drape flawlessly and you have a new way to wear menswear.

Some of the best draping of menswear done below by designer Haider Ackermann

The Parisian designer Bouchra Jarrar showcased this cross superbly done below:

3. Hourglass silhouettes 

Showcasing your feminine form is in full swing for fall. Cinch in the waist with a belt and show off your decolletage with the right neckline.

Off the shoulder dresses and tops such as the one below from Prada shows the decolletage and feminine form at its best while still being classic.

4. The “Midi” mid-length skirt

Calf-cut skirts whether full, A-line or pencil all are great choices for fall.

Victoria Beckham:

Daks:

5. Romantic and frilly. Feathers of femininity is brought in both day and night wear. Add a feathered finished look to your fall wardrobe for a piece of luxury and mystery.

One of my favorite pieces. This winter white cocktail dress by Jason Wu  (keeping the accessories to a minimum is a must with such a statement look of feathers)

6. Bandeau’s... yes even in fall and winter!

JW Anderson shows its nothing wrong with showcasing some shoulder during the fall season

7. Cape escape through fall

My favorite dramatic look is a cape! I love the long cape look #2 by designer Yigal Azrouel

8. Under wraps Tight hugging wraps and stoles are a go to fall trend.

Celine:

9. Texture! Coats to skirts, pants and accessories… don’t be afraid to add texture to your look and even double it!

Ralph Lauren takes texture to another level with these intricate details:
