I have never really been a big fan of fur, real or faux. Real is not my thing, and I've never seen faux in a good silhouette. But this season, there is some faux fur out there that is speaking to me. The styling, very Yoko & John in the 70's, is just right. The longer length and lapels give that masculine/feminine edge that other styles just don't have. What I really love is how these styles aren't strictly for dress-up. I love them equally with denim and white sneakers as with a girlie floral dress. My biggest issue is .. which one to buy?!
Overalls can be tricky. They can make you look like a little boy or a farmer. They can make you look stumpy or dated. Enter Madewell's Flea Market Flare overall. The flare adds length to your legs and gives them that chic 70's feel while the dark wash gives a slimming effect all over.
These are a fashion item, so I would never pay full price for them. But if they happen to become a big part of your wardrobe rotation, you'll be even more stoked about the $35 price point. I'll be wearing mine with a slim turtleneck, platform boots, and the perfect hat.
