fashionable fur vests and coatsThe truth is that this luxurious fabric is easy to wear if you follow certain rules and keep in mind some style tips. The first good news is that nowadays you can layer your coat over both laid-back and glamorous ensembles. With either approach, you will look equally amazing. So, with this in mind, read on to find out some tips that will prove useful when you plan on taking that vest or jacket out of your closet.

When you want to channel casual-chic, the rule of thumb is to keep the rest of your look understated. Loud and flashy garments would just clash with a glamorous fur coat that already demands tons of attention on its own. The focus must be on your fur, and that means you should pair it with basic separates like a plain tee and a pair of tailored pants. Stick to minimalist jewelry and top off the look with a pair of ankle boots and a matching tote or clutch. Your fur will do the talking.

When you feel like dressing down your sumptuous coat, team it with a turtleneck, your favorite jeans and sneakers (our best bet is a leather pair). Wrap a snood around your neck and you are good to wow in off-duty style. Going for a glam look? A fur coat can surely help, so just slip it over an elegant velvet or lace floor-sweeping gown, matching it with sandals or stilettos and an embellished clutch. You are allowed to go a little over the top for special events, so channel your inner show-stopping diva in a fur stole, cape, wrap or cropped coat.

If you are still not ready for a coat or jacket because you feel it might be a little too much for you, try fur accessories, or go for a fur vest. A luxurious hat, a scarf, or a pair of fur trimmed gloves will add an exotic yet understated touch to your look. Because they are sleeveless, vests tend to add less volume offering a more subtle appearance. Since fur can be quite bulky, stick to body-fitting clothes to avoid appearing bigger than you are. Wear your “hot” item with confidence – it will definitely set you apart from the rest of the fashion pack!
