Snag The Style: The Fluffy Faux Fur Sweater

Hi loves! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

I hope youโ€™re still soaking up all the magicโ›„๏ธโœจ Christmas brought us and gearing up for a festive finale to a pretty weird 2018. Although Santa may have come and gone (and dropped me off some cute lil prezzies), thereโ€™s still good reason to dress your most decadent. Indulge in some self-care with a splurge on something fabulous this season: the faux fur sweater. Youโ€™re gonna want to keep that scroll finger primed and ready for this scoop, sis!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

Before I introduce this beauty of a sweater, let me wax poetic one time. In the song โ€œFaithfulโ€ by the iconic rapper and crooner known as Drake๐Ÿฆ‰, the track opens with an audio clip of Muva Amber Rose saying, โ€œIโ€™m not high maintenance or anything. I just like extremely expensive things.โ€ The moment I first heard Muva utter those words on the track, I knew she was definitely speaking a life motto of mine into existence. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿพ

This sweater (and basically my entire outfit) is justified by that perfect synopsis of ya girl. While I may have picked up this fluffy find at Asos for an affordably fashionable price, itโ€™s wearing the designer behind the sweater that makes me feel the most fancy.

For many of us, designer items are out of budget and oftentimes out of reach. Thatโ€™s why when some of fashionโ€™s biggest names collab with more affordable brands for capsule collections or special edition items, I always try to jump on the drop. LaQuan Smith (the designer behind some of the sauciest, and most slinky looks on Beyoncรฉ, Kim Kardashian West, Justine Skye and countless social media It Girls) is a true fashion force to be reckoned with.๐Ÿ’ฏ After making waves at New York Fashion Week some 6-ish years ago, the artist has garnered a huge following and churned out coveted collections.

In addition to being a visionary, Smith is a gay black man โœŠ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒˆ who has continued to influence the world of both menโ€™s and womenโ€™s fashion without ever apologizing for being himself. So naturally, when Smith tapped ASOS Design for a capsule collection featuring hot pieces at v affordable price points, my coins were spent immediately. This sweater was only $87!
