The Tiny Heart: Plaid + Faux Fur

10.30.2013

Plaid + Faux Fur



Plaid Dress-c/o Front Row Shop, Vest-Zara Girls (similar Forever 21 Faux Fur Vest), Bag-Forever Tiff Couture (similar Nordstrom Quilted Crossbody Bag), Boots-Nordstrom (similar Nine West Riding Boots)

I got these leather riding boots last year and I wore them to death. I'm not sure if you can tell, but the right boot still looks brand new and for some reason, the leather has faded on the left boot. Any suggestions on what products to use to restore the leather?

Also, I never know what color tights to wear with these cognac boots. I decided to go with grey today and I'm happy with the way it looks. What other color tights would you wear with them?

  11. Wow those boots look brand new! That's how you know those are amazing boots. I love the camel color combined with plaid and faux fur.

  12. Aw, you make that furry vest look so darn cute! I have a furry vest like that, but dang, it doesn't look half as good as that... I'm a tad afraid to wear it yet, haha!

    Adorable boots, too!

  15. I like the grey with this. As for colored tights with cognac, I have a pair of red ones that I pair with mine. I would also try pattern tights (like plaid or paisley) and of course you can always do black. In regards to your boots, I would take it to shoe cobbler and they can treat the leather?

  17. I definitely like the gray tights! I have a pair of cognac boots and sometimes I wear brown tights with them. Bright colored tights look good too. Oh and I love that vest!

  21. I think grey is always a safe bet, but I bet some mustard tights would be fun! Or wine or black. Love the vest and the boots!

  22. The grey looks great but I think they would also look nice with a deep burgundy [oxblood] color!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I absolutely love this look! I recently got a faux fur vest at a clothing swap and have been at a loss as to how to style it, but I think I could try something like this. SO cute!

  25. I wore a similar outfit last year and wore brown tights with mine, maybe that's worth trying?

  26. Cute look Sharon. :-) I think most colors can be worn with cognac. It's like a neutral. I have worn burgundy, gray and black with mine.

  27. Plaid and fur...win-win!! And that's crazy about one boot fading...I wish I had an answer for you! Also, I think any color tights would work with them....and I LOVE that you picked gray too! The whole look is so fun! I want that Zara girls vest!! ;)

  30. I love your faux-fur vest! The dress and boots are lovely too! Regarding your question about the colors of the tights, your grey tights look great with this outfit. I think that the boots would look great with brown tights (with an outfit with brown/nude colors), but in this outfit another option is navy tights.

  31. I love the gray paired with the boots! I think that any deep color would look good with them! Navy, burgundy, purple, you name it!

  42. My oh my, I love your boots! I'm looking for a pair just like yours, same colour too. I would wear pretty much any colour of tights (if brown, lighter shades). But yeah, you look super adorable. Wonderful plaid dress and awesome fur vest - how cool is that!

    ReplyDelete
  43. You look quite nice and cozy here, and I really love cognac, and I think you can pair it with any color and it will look great. Strange about the fading, wish I had a recommendation for you.

  49. I always question the tights color too, but I am totally digging the grey! Black works too if you have black somewhere else in the outfit. But I think grey was the right choice here!
