Trend Tuesday: Faux Fur Vest + White Button Down

I love when classic pieces and trendy items (like this beautiful faux fur vest) come together in beautiful harmony. 

There’s nothing I love more than an outfit with a lot of texture, complimentary patterns and can be plucked out of your closet with a moment’s notice.

Today I want to share a new series with you called Trend Tuesday where I will be combining trendy pieces (like a faux fur vest, and other 2016 style trends) with more classic pieces (like a white button down) to create a classic look that goes beyond one season of wear.

I think the trick to dressing “trendy” and maintaining sanity with all of the ever evolving trends is to incorporate classic closet essentials whenever possible.

Quality versus quantity always.

The fur vest becomes a classic when paired with a pair of Frye boots and medium wash jeans. I’ve added some “fun” elements like my favorite statement necklace from Audrey Allman Designs and a stack of turquoise blue HM Willow bracelets. While a faux fur vest tends to be on the dressier side of trends, the crispness of the white button down and jeans help to tip the “casual” hat to a laid back sense of style.

Combined with a simple hairstyle and some fun cat eye sunglasses, this look can take you from shopping during the day to dinner at night.
