Style vs. cold weather. I guess this has been a challenge for me since always. For sure, I don’t wanna get sick, but also the “EXTRA LAYER” might ruin THE ENTIRE OUTFIT! That’s why I am sharing my simple trick to beat this dilemma for good!
Let’s break down the advantages of this wonderful fluffy piece:
1. Obviously, it keeps you warm. Faux fur vest is a great solution especially for those TRANSITION PEROIDS, in-between seasons like during fall or warmer days in winter.
2. This clothing piece is also very handy when you feel like YOU HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR, you want to draw attention and also you NEED TO SAVE SOME TIME. In this case, I suggest to go for minimal look – head to toe in one neutral color (nude, grey, black..). Just put on your statement vest, which screams – Hello, here I am confident, stylish and warm!
3. Fur vest is such a VERSATILE COZY MUST in your wardrobe. It is also very layering friendly. Here are my favorite stylings worth to try:
Grab a leather jacket, put on boyfriend jeans and edgy biker boots with metal details. Don’t forget to keep your head warm in winter mockup hat. Lastly add your faux fur vest as a finishing outerwear piece of the outfit. If you freshen it up with a couple of clips, you’ve got bonus points! Simple as that.
Meaning, wear your favourite high waisted skinny jeans with basic light turtleneck. Add elegance by choosing pointy ankle boots and bag with metal details / chain. The bag should keep its shape, so it doesn’t look baggy. Now it’s time for turban or any other unexpected hat, as it brings denim-glam-look to the next level.
If your favourite Spice girl used to be MelC, this is the look for you. The base of this comfy outfit is tee with long sleeves and black chinos with side stripe. Statement sneakers and red velvety baseball cap create relaxed vibe, which would be, however, boring just by itself. And here comes our fluffy friend – faux fur vest, which creates sophisticated Sporty Spice persona.
I didn’t shoot this look, but I’m sure your creative imagination will do the job for me. 🙂 Combine the vest with flowy floral dress and belt it, in order to create illusion of waist. Complete 70’s bohemian style with suede over the knee boots. Have fun and bring back that Jane Birkin era!
Which of the above faux fur vest styling do you prefer and why?
