Back when I was studying apparel marketing and design (my major at Sacramento State), I wrote a paper in my buying class on faux fur being a huge trend for the upcoming winter. Faux fur has since started to become more of a seasonless fashion statement, as it should be! While it used to be a rule that such a trend should be worn strictly during the winter, this is no longer the case. Faux fur gives both the look and feeling of glamour that women desire year-round. So why not wear a faux fur vest or light coat in the chilly spring months or even to an evening party in the summer?
In this outfit, I have paired a casual chambray top, which is perfect for spring, with a vest for a little more warmth. I also wore skinny jeans to help balance out the bulk of the vest. While I love this look standing alone, the fur vest adds such a pop of luxury! Vests like this one are so versatile in that they can be styled with long sleeve t-shirts, button-up tops, and dresses. I also love the contrast of pairing faux fur with something more unexpected, like a plaid top or sheer blouse. Fur adds some texture to an outfit, making it more visually interesting.
What is your favorite faux fur piece?
