This week I’ve come to realise that a faux fur collar is an absolute life saver when it comes to saving a bland outfit.
I saw this beautiful green faux fur collar online and added it to my basket while I was doing some Christmas shopping. I have one already in a warm browny-beige colour but I’d forgotten just how fabulous they make a winter outfit look (see this outfit from last year as another example).
In other words, if your outfit needs tszujing up then try a fur collar – it’s an inexpensive way of making your outfit look much more expensive!
IF YOUR OUTFIT NEEDS TSZUJING UP THEN TRY A FUR COLLAR – IT’S AN INEXPENSIVE WAY OF MAKING YOUR OUTFIT LOOK MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE.
I wore mine over a jacket I rediscovered when getting my winter wardrobe out – the red plaid jacket from a couple of winters ago (this one is almost identical). I don’t think I actually wore it once last year as I didn’t go out that much due to my leg injury, so I wore very few of my winter coats.
SHOP THE LOOK:
I’m also rocking my flared jeans (the skinnies still haven’t made an appearance in over a year, and I don’t think they’re coming back anytime soon)! Other than that it was a straightforward outfit for Christmas shopping of new cross body bag and funky plain-lens aviators, which aren’t prescription – they’re just for fun. #IWillWearWhatILike, yadda yadda, you know the drill…!
And of course do add your outfits to this week’s link up and if you’ve added a link to here or my button to your post you may be featured next week!

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist’s list of “inappropriate” items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
The link up goes live every Monday at 3pm UK time and will stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you’re wearing whatever you damn well like!
