Stay Fashionably Warm In Cozy Fur Vests

Call The Fuzz

Dressing for winter shouldn’t imply a lack of luxury now that fur accents are the big trend in cozy seasonal attire. This season, dressing for winter no longer means bright hued ski jackets and mismatched winter boots. If you argue that it never meant wearing those charming pieces to begin with, you didn’t grow up in the eighties or nineties. (You missed out. Believe us.)

Bring On The Chill

Now that designers and style symbols like Rachel Roy are warming up in fuzzy fur vests, we’re ready for the cold. While fall runway collections from the likes of Vionnet and Mulberry gave us an eyeful of the trend, we’re really loving the way designer Rachel Roy wore the look with her own edgy spin at the Dior sponsored premiere of Rust And Bone.

Weather It

If you’ve had your eye on an on-trend faux fur vest but aren’t sure how to wear it, just follow Rachel’s lead. She knows the best way to keep the look edgy is to pair the fur with unexpected textures like leather pants (jeans or leggings work too!) and a simple, cotton knit or jersey long sleeved tee underneath. Choose a simple palette, relying on the texture and volume of the vest to do all the talking. Glam touches add the final bit of winter heat.
