Hi Friends! We are officially less than one week away from Christmas! Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite and simple accessories that adds a bit of “glam” to literally any outfit – THE FAUX FUR VEST.
The great thing about a fur vest is you can literally throw it on over sweatpants and suddenly be transformed into a glamorous, vaguely intimidating version of yourself. Another reason to love it, it adds a touch of extravagance and luxury to every outfit. Whether it is a fuzzy vest, beautiful coat or fur lined boots, a touch of faux fur is essential. Sounds like a winner, right? Keep reading for more easy styling ideas!
If you’ve ever found yourself sitting in your closet and wondering how to wear it—or you’re thinking of picking one up now that the weather is getting chilly here are some tips! Layer it over a chambray shirt and jeans for a casual weekend look, or toss it over a dress on your way to work—or, when it gets really cold, put it on under your coat for some seriously luxurious-feeling warmth. Below I’m sharing all the details on each look!
Casual – I love pairing faux fur and jeans. You can play up the drama by choosing a faux fur with long, extra-fluffy fibers, and pairing it with a knit in the same color family underneath. This will give your outfit an especially chic twist, since outfits with less colors tend to read as more sophisticated and stylish, like my all black look above!
To The Office – If you want to try wearing a faux fur to the office to avoid looking frumpy or too bulky, wear your vest over crisp separates—perhaps even a monochromatic look. There’s no need to over-think it, though: pair black and black, dark denim and navy, you get the idea! Throw your vest or coat on over that and you’re all set. Solidify the polished ensemble with subtle gold jewelry and you are set!
Layers – When looking for vests to layer, look for a vest that isn’t too thick. If you are willing to step out of your comfort zone, belt it! This will help define your waist and retain your figure under all those layers. I suggest ordering one size up in your vest for the perfect fit!
Vests can be tough to figure out, I get it. They can feel superfluous, bulky and awkward—but I think faux fur vests are the easiest look to try, since they layer with just about everything—from feminine dresses to jeans, leather leggings, knits and more. Just know fur should make you feel glamorous and warm, but also playful, stylish and daring. There’s really no wrong answer to when and where you can rock a fur, as long as it’s seasonally appropriate. And you guessed it, since the temps are dropping here for Christmas, this faux fur vest will making an appearance!
