Feeling Fuzzy!

 As of last winter, I have seen a trend among knitwear with a specific fabric. Some call it "fuzz", "fuzzy" or even "fluffy". Whatever your name for it is, it's undeniable that these animal-inspired pieces are back even more so than last year. They're definitely a hit or miss depending on your style but personally I love them. I think that having classic pieces with unexpected textures is actually more bold than going for the allover neon + polyester disaster. Pairing a fluffy jumper with essential fall pieces can give your outfit the right kind of shock value and keep things interesting.

Here are some A/W collections that showcase what the "furry" look is all about. From Lavin's color block bomber-style jacket to Dior's knee length coat, fur adds a sophisticated touch that mixes perfectly with leather and lace.

Obviously I won't be walking down the street in an all-over fur coat and peep toe heels (you probably won't either), so here are some ways to work this trend into everyday wear! Hope you like them. xx Flo
