Maximal challenge : plaid, stripes, faux fur and crops

Sorry to make this quick and not include footwear. With the furry collar, I'd probably wear tan suede loafers. Is the collar too maximal? It actually goes on a denim jacket that I could wear with the shirt and tee but it is a different shade than the crops but not different enough to my eye. Should I add pearls?

    Hi Joy.  I prefer the outfit without the collar.

    Plaid, stripes, and fur: what a seductive title!  I'd skip the fur collar, unless you have one in a darker color.  Or maybe a vest?  Yes to the pearls (especially multiple strands on tee shirts!).

    Love the plaid and stripes, but I think the collar is wrong in this instance.  

    I wish I looked like this in plaid, very stylish.

    Pearls would be perfect!

    I vote yes to the pearls and no to the collar. I think the collar needs more structure (a gilet or a jacket).

    Agree with Brooklyn - with pearls this will be perfect.

    Thank you, everyone. Pearls feel like a better choice to me too.

    I agree with the others that the fur doesn't seem right. I like the plaid and stripes together. Yes to pearls.

    I love it all - even the fur collar! But maybe better with a different neckline.

    I agree with the others, no fur but lot of  pearls, and maybe tuch of color, just  to be fun ( shoes or bag or your choice) . Like stripes and plaid together.

    Agreeing with Alaskagirl -- Love it all... fur included. Do I recall that you have an argyle cardigan? The fur collar might be fun with that sweater.

    I like the faux fur too. Add pearls, boots, and you're there. 

  • approprio replied 1 year ago

    You could add pearls but I agree with Angie. Boots would make this grunge-fabulous.

    I like the fur too.  I think it's fun and with tan boots it will look more purposeful.  I like the outfit without the fur collar too.

    Thank you all for your suggestions. I like adding pearls and getting some tan boots. I can see that they would make it much easier to style anything with this fur collar.
