We love ourselves a great fur vest. Super soft outerwear is the bee’s knees during winter months: not only is it incredibly warm and cozy – but totally chic and on-trend. We’ve shown you some amazing under $100 faux fur vests, our favorite faux fur accessories, and our fur selections from the fall 2010 runways. And now we bring you the essential guide to wearing faux fur without looking like a cave woman:
Short Faux Fur Vest
A short faux fur vest is a great accessory to throw on any casual outfit. Start out with a simple vest, like this Rebecca Taylor Fab Faux Fur Vest ($395). Add a little 70’s glam with flare jeans, especially these by Vintage Revolution ($118). A comfy boyfriend cardigan – we like this Halogen Boyfriend Cardigan ($69) in any of the in 10 colors – and a pair of Tory Burch Reva Flats ($235) and you’re ready to go out to lunch, to work on casual Friday, or even a shopping trip. Plus you’ll stay warm all day.
Long Faux Fur Vest
Longer faux fur vests beg to be dressed up – for work or a dinner party, but the vest has to be perfect. So grab this MICHAEL Michael Kors Faux Coyote Vest ($130) and think basic for the rest of your outfit. Since black clothes match this furry number so well, we decided on an Ella Moss Frida Ponte Skirt ($85) with a pair of Commando Richly Ribbed Opaque Tights ($34). Throw on a pair of vintage booties, like these Steven Madden Chelseey Platform Booties ($98.95) and the wolves will be howling right back at you.
