Three Tips for Wearing A Fur Vest

Whether real or fake you can’t go anywhere without seeing someone wearing a fur vest. I finally broke down and bought my faux shaggy one from Nordstrom last year and I am so glad I did.

But, people have asked, “How do I wear it?” My answer,“With anything!”

Whether with jeans or leggings, over a chunky sweater dress, or with a skirt, it can change the look of anything you have on.

Here are three things to think about:

  1. Even if it’s faux, you don’t want to wear it under a coat. You will get extremely warm.
  2. If you’re petite, watch the length. You want it to hit at around hipbone. Anything longer and it will overwhelm your frame, especially if it has long hairs.
  3. While I love the long shaggy nap of my vest, I’d be thrilled if I could find one with a mixed texture. A faux suede and fur mix can feel like a shearling coat without the sleeves.

Most importantly? Have fun with it!
