OOTD - Faux Fur Snood



What do you guys think about the faux-fur trend thats happening in a big way this season?  I have totally embraced the trend, not only for it's vintage throw back but also for the fact that it's warm - something that we Canadians need! I will admit though I was a little sceptical of wearing faux-fur at first, and it definitely took some baby steps on my part to become comfortable with the trend.  This faux-fur snood is the perfect way to ease into craze, and a nice way to have some fun with a traditional wool pea coat and some shorts and tights.  Read on for additional photos and all outfit details.



Fur Snood - Asos, Pea Coat - Aritzia, Shorts - Club Monaco
Bag - Marc by Marc Jacobs, Sunglasses - Karen Walker


If you can believe it, I bought this jacket from Aritzia over six years ago and it still looks brand new!  They still sell this style in stores (the Howell) and I understand why - it's such a classic cut and silhouette and I can see myself wearing this pea coat for years to come.  This is yet another reminder of why it pays to invest in quality pieces that are durable and will withstand the test of time.  I'm slowly but surely starting to embrace the mindset of quality vs quantity and I hope to perfect it in the new year.


I'm wearing one of my all time favourite lipsticks - Mac's Rebel.  This colour is so flattering on all different skin types and is absolutely perfect for Winter when we tend to be a little paler - but man, does it ever get everywhere!  Notice the pink-tinged fur on the snood, it's bound to happen!


What do you think about the faux-fur trend?  Are you taking baby steps?  Let me know!

  1. You look adorable! I don't have any faux-fur pieces, but that snood is so cute. I do have some vintage fox-fur earmuffs that were my grandmothers though! They are sooo cozy.

    1. Hey Kimi - sorry about that, I really should and will be more diligent in the future! The sweater is from Banana Republic. It's from a few years ago, but I think that they always carry this style or one that is similar. Hope that helps!
