Looking around, it seems as if the faux fur vest is shaping up to be this fall and winter’s [cruelty-free] must have item. We’re all for this ultra-glam style, as it’s an easy way to jazz up your daily duds. However, it’s important to keep in mind when donning fake fur that you are not a famous female rapper, or heir to some European throne. Here’s how to wear a faux fur vest in the real world, and wear it well.
First things first. Whether it’s fake or the real deal, the furry look catches attention, so start by dressing down your vest with a pair of flattering, skinny jeans in a dark wash. Next, wear a long sleeved top in black to offset the lighter colored fuzz. We’d wear flat boots rather than heels, but for a hint of embellishment try a harness style. Finally, while you don’t want to over-bling it, a long and delicate gold necklace will perfectly complete your look.
