Currently Loving: Faux Fur Vests

Faux Fur

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. All black. For the ultimate edgy look, a black vest with black jeans and booties is perfect for a night on the town.
  4. 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.

Do you have a faux fur vest? How do you style it?

    This faux-fur vest is a great piece! It looks perfect with the plaid shirt. I don’t own this cozy piece yet but have been looking for one. Today, I’m also featuring a faux-fur vest on my blog. Have a nice day!

    I wasn’t always a fan of faux fur either but I’m obsessed with my faux fur vest now, especially with an all black outfit or with plaid. I always feel so chic and cozy!

    That is a great fur vest! I really want to get one, but I don’t think they would look good on me!

      I didn’t necessarily think they would either! I like the one I have because it’s not super bulky and overwhelming, so I would recommend trying ones that aren’t super bulky. Thanks for stopping by Mary Kate!
