Faux fur vests, fashionable and warm.
It’s that time of the year where all you want to do is cuddle up in something warm and stay inside all day. For a lot of us, this is near impossible. With school, work, shoveling snow or just trying to get some fresh air, we need to go outside at some point. This is where the faux fur vest comes in.
The faux fur vest is the new “it” layering piece for winter. Coming in an array of colors and textures, the faux fur vest provides the wearer with a second skin without harming any of our animal friends. It adds a little something extra to any outfit with its luxurious look and texture.
Now the question is, “How do I wear this thing without looking like a bear or Cruella DeVille?” There is definitely a right and a wrong way to wear the fur vest. While it can be feminine and fashion forward, it can also appear bulky and unfitted when worn incorrectly. The trick is to keep the silhouette as feminine as possible. You can achieve this by using a skinny belt to accentuate the waist.
It is recommended to wear skinny jeans or leggings to slim the bottom half of your body as well. Another tip is to keep the colors consistent. A black fur vest works well with a white or black shirt underneath. Save the pop of color for the statement necklace or the clutch. You want to keep most of the drama on the vest.
There are many celebrities and bloggers who have been seen rocking the faux fur vest lately. Olivia Palermo, Kim Kardashian ad Aimee Song are just a few of the gals in the limelight showing off this style.
You can grab a faux fur vest in almost any clothing store this season, but many are pricey. The best places to shop for this statement piece are Target, Forever 21 and Montclair’s very own South Moon Under. South Moon Under carries a variety of brands in different price ranges, which offers a large selection of different kinds of faux fur. So, if you need something to cozy up to this winter season, invest in a faux fur vest!
