What To Wear In Winter
Even with the cold weather, I love fall and winter fashion - boots, faux fur, layers, sweaters to the colors; this is the best season for fashion (in my opinion).
I'm all about being a smart shopper and shopping with a purpose, you don't need a new wardrobe as you change into a new season - just a few new additions.

Winter Essential: Faux Fur
Faux fur is no longer considered a trend, this a wardrobe staple that continues to make an appearance every fall and winter season. Anyone, any age - can pull off faux fur.
If this style seems too bold for your, here are some quick tips:
#1 - Start small - opt for a small accessory (bag or stole) to warm up to the idea of wearing faux fur.
#2 - Opt for a darker shade. Faux fur is a statement on it's own, styling a bold color may just terrify you, so start with a darker tone. It'll feel more wearable and less overwhelming for you.
#3 - Opposites attract. Pair your faux fur with your wardrobe basics to help tone down this statement piece.
Faux fur pieces are included within Winter 2017 Wardrobe eBook, but if you feel you need more practice on how to pull off this style and different styling tricks, I teach you how to build out and coordinate your outfits around faux fur accessories and garments in How To: Style Faux Fur eBook (available here).
