Faux Fur is a huge trend this season. We love the warmth of a faux fur vest and have found ourselves reaching for more and more things with a faux fur accent! There’s something about it that helps us embrace our inner cavewoman! But… we don’t necessarily want to look like a cavewoman while sporting this trend. There is lies much of the problem…
So here are a few ideas for styling your faux fur vest, along with a few tips for selecting just the right one for your wardrobe.
- Cut Matters. Pay attention to collar and length of the vest – aim for one that elongates the body and narrows at the shoulders or has a collar. This will help you not feel so bulky in your faux fur.
- Color Coordinate. As much as you love your faux fur, it will still be something you have to think about before you throw on. Help make it more wearable by color coordinating it to your existing wardrobe. We’ve found that brown tones or cream are easiest to mix in with our current pieces.
- Pair Down. Pair your vest with a dress, skinny jeans, leggings, or long tunic that elongate your body. Like we said, fur vests add bulk so you want to try to balance this out with longer lines in the rest of your wardrobe.
