Fluffy Jackets: Fall’s statement pieces
Cropped fluffy jacket (size XS, thrifted from Buffalo Exchange).
Fall is the perfect time to wear fluffy jackets. This is my one and only genuine rabbit fur jacket. It is so soft to touch and I love how the cropped style fits on my petite frame as a full length jacket. I’ve worn it over long sleeves, short sleeves and dresses for work and parties for the past 2 years.
Cropped styles are great for petites. This not only applies for jackets, but also for tops and pants. If they are labelled as cropped, there is a good chance that they can fit you well.
See below for the fluffy jackets in fur and faux fur that caught my eye. They are from The RealReal:
Fur Jackets/Vests from The RealReal (size 0-6)
Fur Jackets/Vests from The RealReal (size 8-14)
Just like leather and faux leather, both genuine fur and faux fur have their own pros and cons. Obviously, that’s a whole debate of its own. Briefly speaking, leather and fur are non animal-friendly, but are natural and biodegradable; meanwhile the faux leather and fur are cruelty-free, but are mostly made from plastics. Whichever is your preference, there are better choices in each category. I’m not vegan, but I don’t eat meat/dairy everyday. When it comes to leather and fur, I would seek out secondhand options first, before buying new from trusted sources. There are plenty of options from local thrift stores and online consignment stores, and they always have fluffy and furry items in stock.
Belt: Knot in the detail
Leather belt (size XS, thrifted from ThredUP).
This is another great find from ThredUP. This belt has a fixed knotted detail for a clean, concealed look. If you are looking to add some drama to your high-waisted pants or sweater dresses, check out the belts from ThredUP for up to 90% off retail.
Bag: Vintage vibe with a modern twist
I also enjoy faux leather items like this bag. Faux leather is water proof since it’s essentially plastic, but that’s a plus for raining days. This bag is an old purchase from China. If you love this look, you may like this one from Nordstrom.
Boots: Block heel & pointed toe
Subtle texture & maximum comfort
Amour Vert ribbed long sleeves (size XS, current version).
This is another great purchase. Timeless and comfortable, this top is made from sustainable materials just like any other Amour Vert’s product. Be sure to check out this brand if you want to find sophisticated and easy to wear pieces.
Pants: Corduroy as the signature
fabric of fall
Levi’s Wide Leg Pleated Corduroy Pants (size 24).
I’m recently in love with loose high-waisted pants. These pants also come in 2 more colors. The fit is true to Levi’s size chart, maybe slightly big if anything. If you aren’t sure, I’d suggest going down a size. For reference, my waist measurement is 26” and size 24 fits nicely.
Happy fall shopping and embrace the perfect time to get fluffy and layered up! And as always, thank you for visiting my blog, and see you next Friday.
