Looking for a tongue-in-cheek fashion item to layer over anything from skinny jeans to chic dresses? Look no further than the fur vest, the ultimate statement-making outwear piece that will flatter any fashionista with its boho-glam charm.
Whether it’s for work or play, a fur vest is a daring item. If worn well, it will bring you fashion kudos and a few sideways glances (and we know women love all the fashion envy they can get, right?).
To channel your vest at work simply layer it over a coat (try picking them in the same color). The ideal length would hit below the hip and the vest should fit snugly around the armholes for a flawless look.
Looking to impress on a night out? Ditch the predictable LBD and go for a pair of feminine tweed shorts worn with a pretty blazer. Layer with a luxurious fur vest you can cuddle up in. Match with sleek heels and a pretty clutch and you are the image of edgy perfection.
What we really love about versatile vests is that they can be worn with so many different outfits, for endless occasions, and by literally anyone. From off-duty models to street style stars and fashion mavens everyone seems to want a “look at me” vest nowadays.
Layer it over maxi dresses, denim shirts, chic sweaters, silk blouses, pencil skirts and tees, leather pants or skinny jeans, and accessorize with ankle booties, over-the-knee boots or heels. Unlike some mink fur jackets and coats, nothing will look too casual when paired with a fur vest because this is a fashion item that adds a classy touch to anything.
Remember that your arms will look more slender (even if they are not really skinny) if you layer a flowing blouse or a long-sleeved tee with a vest, while petite ladies will appear taller if they pick a fitted vest that falls at the hip bone or the top of the thigh.
Even though vests originally were winter items, furriers figured women might like to flaunt a little fur in summer, as well, so they came up with a special technique to create feathered fur vests (lightweight and breathable styles with strips of fabric in between strips of fur). This only means you can look a little extravagant in every season, showing your fashion flair and good taste Tip: match yours with a breezy maxi dress or shorts and a tee, and you’ve got yourself a show-stopping spring/summer outfit!
For maximum opulence choose a fur vest made from mink, fox, sable, or raccoon – they will add a touch of luxury to your every outfit.
Ladies, it’s time to look insanely stylish in the “hot” item of the moment, the fur vest!
