Remember when faux fur was a fashion faux pas? Well, not anymore! It’s a win-win situation for us, ladies. Why is that? 1.) It has less of a strain on our pockets. 2.) We won’t have to dodge paint thrown by P.E.T.A. advocates!!! I have fallen victim to the faux fur vests! I bought my first one last year and one this year. I love how versatile they are. You can wear them with anything from jeans to dresses… Blouses to t-shirts… Even solids to patterns! The only drawback I have is that the little Acrylic fiber-creatures get everywhere sometimes. Other than that, it can take an outfit from drab to fab in .2 seconds. The vests are available in several lengths, so have fun. You don’t have to limit yourselves to fur vests. You can add a little pizazz with the fur collars, coats, hats… OR, you can be the apple-bottom-jeans-boots-with-the-(FAUX)-fur girl. (Please, 86 the apple-bottom jeans though)! Remember, fur is a HUGE statement by itself! So, DON’T OVER-DO IT! I personally wouldn’t wear a FUR vest and FUR boots, with a FUR hat to match! Can you say GRIZZLY-CHIC gone wrong?!
I think Rachel Zoe looks AWESOME in her vest! I just had to include her in this post. Rumor has it that she gave faux fur its relevance… I’m not so sure about that, but she definitely ROCKED this look!
