Struggling to stay warm this winter while still making a fashion statement? For a layer that’s both cozy and chic, try a fur vest! There’s no doubt these vests have been hot on the fashion radar for a while, but you may still be wondering exactly how to pull off the look. Fur vests come in a variety of neutral colors, making it easy to pair with almost any basic outfit. Also, if you’re nervous about embracing this daring trend, I definitely suggest opting for a more inexpensive faux fur option. Worn with distressed boyfriend jeans and classic solid-colored button-down, a fur vest adds an element of girly flair and sophistication.
For a dressier pop of color, add a colorful statement necklace to the overall look. For a more casual look, try pairing a brown or beige vest with a plaid button down or chambray shirt. On the bottom keep it simple with your favorite skinny jeans and a pair of ankle boots. Even though you’ll be making a statement in your vest, don’t be afraid to accessorize or add an extra layer with a cozy infinity scarf. For a more interesting look, give your fur vest a bohemian vibe. Wearing it with a neutral-toned maxi-skirt or dress easily makes these spring pieces fall/winter appropriate. Add a floppy hat, long necklace, and sunglasses for an effortlessly chic boho look. The possibilities are endless so get creative and make a fur vest your statement this winter!
