#WWAW: Fur with a Maxi?

Twice a year the style elite kick off the fashion month festivities celebrating the medium of movement art and showcasing for all of us a preview of what we can look forward to wearing in the upcoming season.  New York Fashion Week starts this Thursday and after four consecutive seasons at the tents I will be bowing out this season.  I’m not taking a permanent vacation from the tents but after all of the hustle and bustle it takes to prepare to attend the beautiful chaos that is New York Fashion Week, the demanding back to back schedule of shows and industry events that make up my fashion week agenda, coupled having a full-time career I needed a break.  Last week I made the hard decision to take this season off and cover the New York Fashion Week shows from the comfort of my home and bonus? Automatic front row seating!

What’s the inspiration: Since my decision of whether or not I’d be attending New York Fashion Week wasn’t officially solidified until last week I’d already begun the preparation of attending.  One of my favorite tent ensembles that I’d planned on wearing is inspired by re-purposing my maxi pleated skirt which was one of my favorite pieces from last spring/summer.  I can’t get enough of this amazing piece so I thought, “Fur with a Maxi? Sure why not!”

1Why it’s relevant: Mixing of fabrications and textures is a refreshing way to incorporate interest and newness to a drab winter wardrobe.  I’ve made this ensemble season appropriate by pairing my favorite pleated maxi skirt with a warm & cozy pull over sweatshirt, a faux fur vest layered on top of leather motorcycle jacket and boots of course.


Where to wear it: Not only is this tent appropriate, especially considering the weather but it’s perfect to wear to any event and should be worn everywhere.  Mixing of fabrications and textures add so much interest while at the same time ensure that you are dressed up/down the right amount for any occasion.


What I’m wearing: KENZO pullover sweatshirt/ ASOS Pleated Maxi Skirt/ BB Dakota Faux Fur Vest/ ASOS Moto Leather Jacket (Similar)/ Chloe Susanna Booties/ Givenchy Clutch/ River Island Sunnies
