As much as I can’t believe I’m saying this, I wasn’t always a fan of faux fur. Sometimes, it can look really overdone. A giant faux fur coat? Probably not for every day, and definitely not for me. Trust me, though, I totally wish I could pull one off, and I’m jealous of anyone that can. But a vest? That I can get on board with.
And now that I own one (this Chelsea28 vest), I realize just how easy they are to style too.
- Layer a white tee (or another light neutral) underneath a camel, tan or brown colored vest. This will give you that “winter white” look. And the colors look really beautiful together.
- With plaid. Remember our beloved plaid? Yeah. It goes with everything. The juxtaposition of plaid and faux fur vest really works, adding a chic vibe.
- All black. For the ultimate edgy look, a black vest with black jeans and booties is perfect for a night on the town.
- With ripped boyfriend jeans. Since the jeans have a baggier fit, I recommend trying this with a shorter vest, so the look isn’t too overwhelming. If you want people to think you pulled this look together at the last minute, this is it.
Again, a faux fur vest can be like almost any other layering piece you have in terms of styling options. And the added bonus, the right faux fur can feel amazingly soft. A good quality faux fur vest can still feel luxurious. Mine, which is the first one in the widget below, is under $100 but feels like it should be worth at least double.
