1. I always buy vintage furs, never new. Not only are they much less expensive, but they also have more unique details. Take a cue from Judy Aldridge and wear your casually with distressed skinnies and ankle boots.

2. If you are going to wear boots with dresses or shorts, show a little sock– it is a fashionable buffer between the leather and your skin.

3.  Extra long skinny belts are in. If you don’t have one, connect two shorter belts and knot them in the front-this gives your look some personality and adds interest.

4. When in doubt, go monochromatic. No matter the season, this look is chic (and shorts with a blazer is my go-to).
