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.

I’m not a huge fan of dressing trendy because it’s expensive and I’m more into investing in my clothing than having to re-buy one article of clothing multiple times due to it being cheaply constructed.
Quality versus quantity always.
BUT that’s not to say that I don’t like to combine trendy items with classic pieces to create looks that last a lifetime. Take for example this faux fur vest, that I got from Hello Lovely ATL, paired with a white button up.
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.
