We know fur vests are are one of the hottest fall trends right now, but the J. Crew Mongolian Lamb Vest ($800) is not your average vest. Pure Mongolian Lamb fur, finished in Paris, lined in silk. Not to mention how amazing it looks. But before we empty our bank account, let’s take a look at the alternatives – like these 6 soft and stylish pieces to keep you warm and fuzzy, for the same price.
To keep you warm, the Spiewak McElroy Hooded Parka ($174) is the ideal jacket. With plenty of pockets, a detachable hood and toggle buttons, you’ll continue to wear this every year. Pair it with these Sam Edelman Orlando Boots ($200) over leggings or skinny jeans and you can generate your own heat on those brisk mornings.
There’s no reason to stop halfway when dripping in furs, so we say rock this Topshop Faux Fur All Over Hat ($44) when sipping hot cocoa at the ski lodge or just trudging to work. Don’t forget to attach these Saks Fifth Avenue Fur Cuff Leather Gloves ($125) to your sleeves, kindegarten-style, or they might get “accidentally” swapped.
For indoors and outdoors alike, of course, a Michael by Michael Kors Faux Coyote Fur Vest ($130) in a perfectly neutral fur color that will look right at home with the rest of your tigress wardrobe. Finish off the look with this Asos Fantasy Fur Lady Bag ($60.66) to stash all your stuff.
