{Faux} Leather and Fur

It's incredible how warm the weather has been in NYC this week... It's February and every day has been in the 50's! To celebrate not needing a big winter coat I decided to bring my black faux leather jacket out for a spin. To keep it wintery in vibe and add a touch of warmth I layered a faux fur vest over it. This layered look is one I've admired on other people but never tried before myself, and I really love the combo! Simples stripes and cuffed jeans keep the look casual yet chic. 

Even though the outfit is primarily black and white, the contrast of stripes and polka dots adds an element of interest and a statement necklace keeps the look girly with a touch of soft pink. I love the contrast of textures between the smooth jacket and the fluffy vest and the way that together they create the effect of a more wintery jacket than either could alone. 

Jacket: Zara. Fur vest: Chicwish. Top: Ruche (similar). Jeans: Gap. Booties: Nine West at DSW. Bag: Kate Spade. Necklace: Saks Off 5th. Lip: BareMinerals Cherries On Top.
