Fall always lends itself to (faux) fur. The look is luxurious...and warm! Depending on the style, pieces can bring a super chic feel, a rock n' roll attitude or a bohemian twist into an ensemble. Rock n' roll attitude with a whole lot of fierce is the closest description for the way Michelle did fur. She used the fabric in several 'shoots throughout her WWE career, all of them memorable! This version, from the days of her initial heel turn, paired a vest with leather leggings and studded almost-OTK boots. While the Flawless One added a sleeveless leather crop top beneath her fur, the current weather conditions and public exposure laws suggest a slight metamorphosis is in order if we're going to steal Michelle's style. I love the idea of burgundy with all this black, but Michi studiously avoided it (if I recall correctly, she said she felt like an apple in red :)), but I can totally imagine her reaching for this blue curve-hugging sweater to pop underneath. If you own a deep emerald slim sweater, definitely consider that too. Alternatively, navy would be a chic option. Add slim or skinny black jeans on the bottom (or leather leggings or tuxedo-stripe ponte pants) and then top the whole thing with your favorite faux fur vest. "But, Brie...I don't have a faux fur vest! Or any fur vest actually..." Don't panic! You can get a similar look by loosely wrapping a scarf around your neck. The scarf gives you some heat-control options as well...cotton or silk will be cooler, cashmere or wool will almost rival the fur. Finish the look with leather boots: Michelle wouldn't be caught dead without her heels (unless she's working out ;)), but flat OTKs up the comfort factor and add a nice casual vibe to the styling. Naturally, you'll need to finish this ensemble flawlessly: with a bold cuff, Michelle favorite choice in accessories. If you have something with studs or crystals, don't shy away from a touch of glam; the LayCool ladies would approve! Alternatively, layer a few narrower bangles to achieve the idea of a bold piece. Happy styling!
