Fur Fad


There’s nothing more exciting than the knowledge that your favorite fad has made a comeback, and I’m pleased to announce that the fur vest is back and better than ever. Runways such as BCBGCaroline Herrera and Michael Kors have all redesigned the simple fur vest for fall with patterns, pops of colors, and new shapes.

Long or short, neutral or daring, these staple pieces can make any casual ensemble glamorous and chic. If wearing a busy piece like the BCBG, stick to neutrals to balance out the patterns and keep the focus on the vest. However, if you’re leaning towards a less dramatic or more neutral vest, such as the Caroline Herrera piece, I suggest pairing it with a pop of color that’s in style for fall, such as maroon colored pants or a sheer emerald shirt.

Fur vests are an eccentric and exciting piece to add to your fall and winter wardrobe and the trend can be styled a million ways, like with mini skirts and thigh-high boots or even ripped jeans and a comfy sweater. This piece can transition perfectly Uptown day to night, and if you enhance it with your favorite accessories, you’ll have a fabulous outfit that may even make Rachel Zoe majorly jealous.

Here are some vests from Topshop, Forever 21, and Nordstrom to get you brainstorming…
