• Office Style: Faux Fur Real

Office Style: Faux Fur Real

We’re always inspired by everyone’s office style, and when the holidays roll around we all go a bit overboard dressing up in dreamy and festive frocks. No complaints here, because it offers up endless winter wardrobe inspo all season long.

For this holiday office style roundup, we took our favorite faux fur jacket of the season – Yes, we’re talking about the faux fury Wild One Jacket, gave it to a bevy of our design team and let them work their wardrobe magic. Get inspired by their looks below:

ALLISON // Little Wing Heritage Tee

What was the last time someone asked you “are you for real”???? It was probably one of my kids!! Hahaha…they’re always like "MOM…are you serious?!? You’re so weird"!!!

Tell us about your style choice… where would you wear this look, what made you pick this look? I love mixing a dressy / statement piece with really casual, lived in styles. I dig the juxtaposition and not taking things too seriously! I would wear this look pretty much anywhere…ya’ know, the market, work, surf check :)!!!

How would this tie back to your everyday style? Nothing about my style is super polished…and my mornings are usually a whirlwind, so having a statement piece that can elevate jeans and tee is a dream! Plus I’m a sucker for anything cheetah!

What’s your daily life look like at Billabong Womens? / what inspires you at work? Every day here is different, wild and colorful!! Some days are full of meetings and sketch reviews & others are super down & dirty, digging through vintage archives and drilling in on crafting color palettes and print concepts! It definitely keeps me on my toes!! Even after 13 years, I’m still so inspired by the process of taking what was once a dream and following it’s journey with our team through concept creation, collection building, seeing it come to life through a photoshoot and then on some rad girl walking down the street!! It always amazes me!! As far as what inspires me at work…I’d say firstly, the people, those inside the building and those who we get to cross paths & collaborate with along the way. I’m inspired by the heritage of this brand and the people who have dedicated themselves to serving it so beautifully! I’m also beyond inspired by our women’s surf team…they’re smart, strong, driven, well traveled, humble, fun and are next level talented!!


LEILA //Billabong Mens T-shirt

What was the last time someone asked you “are you for real”???? I live on a very quiet street in suburbia where the median age is 70. I get “are you for real” reflected back at me every time I get in my car/get my mail/run after my cat… I don’t exactly fit in… I find it incredibly amusing.

Tell us about your style choice… where would you wear this look, what made you pick this look? I firstly love a faux leopard fur, its a classic but also says I’m a bit wild…. I kept it simple with the rest of my outfit & just stole a Billabong mens tee as a dress, something I do quite often. To me this is a perfect work outfit or something to throw on to go see a band or an art show.

How would this tie back to your everyday style? This is my everyday style **insert crying laughing emoji” theres nothing more fun than playing dress up on the daily.

What’s your daily life look like at Billabong Womens? / what inspires you at work? Daily life here involves a really good balance of creative energy & strategic thinking… that’s what makes me tick! We are always looking ahead.. Whats new, whats fun & whats next for our girl. I spend a lot of my day brainstorming and problem solving with the designers & that’s probably the part of my job I love the most. I am inspired by the people I get to work with every single day, we really are lucky to have a tight crew of really nice & talented people in every department & its their energy & ideas that make me excited to come to work every day.

MADELYN // Long Sleeve Little Wing Heritage Shorts Lusty Sunday

Tell us about your style choice… where would you wear this look, what made you pick this look? I like being pajama chic so I love these boudoir crinkle satin shorts. It says relaxed but in a bit of a flirty way and you can wear it out, but it is comfy enough to lounge in all day and night.

How would this tie back to your everyday style? I would say my style is pretty relaxed. Even when dressing up, I like to pair my outfit back to casual/functional pieces.

What’s your daily life look like at Billabong Womens? / what inspires you at work? I’m usually working on several seasons at one time so daily life at Billabong can be pretty hectic and scattered, but I work with a team of amazingly talented and creative women (lots of whom can really shred) , and they can always inspire me.

MEGAN // Tank Golden Days

The last time someone made you ask yourself…’Are you for real’? I was recently at a event and witnessed a girl picking up wine glasses and throwing them across the lawn.

Tell us about your style choice… where would you wear this look, what made you pick this look? My typical uniform is a tucked in t-shirt and jeans and I love wearing head to toe black and more neutral colors. The jacket adds a fun twist that mixed with the black denim and graphic tee creates a casual but edgy look. I’d wear this look to work, out shopping, or after work for drinks. This look is pretty versatile.

What’s your daily life look like at Billabong Womens? / what inspires you at work? No day is the same at Billabong. I’m usually working on 4 seasons at once. Currently I’m approving production samples for summer 18 & fall 18, waiting to get pre-line samples for a holiday 18, and designing spring 19. In this type of job you have to be really flexible and able to adapt to change because you never know what is going to come up. I’m inspired by my fellow teammates. Everyone is really passionate about what they do and the brand and wants Billabong to be the best that it can be.

KAITLYN // Dress Dream To Dream

The last time someone made you ask yourself…’Are you for real’? My husband and my sister are a couple of the funniest people I know. They always have me cracking up, and I sometimes can’t believe the things that are coming out of their mouths. I ask myself if they’re for real all the time. Oh, and definitely my beagle, Lucy- she’s so damn cute, I ask her if she’s real on the daily- still waiting on a verbal reply.

Tell us about your style choice… where would you wear this look, what made you pick this look? I’d wear this to one of my girlfriends’ holiday dinners or parties. I love the contrast of the sneakers mixed with the feminine dress and fun faux fur jacket.

How would this tie back to your everyday style? I wear dresses pretty much every other day, and consider leopard a neutral. These are 2 items I can see myself living in- separately or together.

What’s your daily life look like at Billabong Womens? / what inspires you at work? I love being a part of the Billabong team. We definitely work hard/play hard in womens M&D, and the daily tasks change constantly depending on what we’re all juggling at the moment. Just being around this group of girls is inspiring- they’re all so talented, funny, and have huge hearts!
