How to Wear a Faux Fur Vest

Today I’m joining Cyndi and Alison for a fun style collab. We decided to share how we each style one of the season’s hottest trends — a faux fur vest.

A faux fur vest is a current fall trend that can add some extra pizzazz to your wardrobe, so when I saw this one at Bloomingdales for $56, I snatched it right up. I thought I’d find a gazillion ways to wear it, but I’ll confess, I struggled to style this piece to my liking. The more I look around at fur vest outfits on Pinterest, the more I like the idea of dressing it down with more casual wardrobe pieces. However, for this post, I’m sharing an outfit that I might wear out for a date night at a fancy restaurant or to see a show in Philly. Take a look.

Outfit Details: Jack by BB DAKOTA Faux Fur Vest | Lush ‘Perfect’ Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic in Tawny Port | Amanda Skinny Jean in Bismarck (similar; budget option) | Leopard Patent Pumps (old; similar) | Stella & Dot Nancy Studs | Stella & Dot Gitane Tassel Necklace (ON SALE!!! $48.30 while supplies last!!!) | Clutch (old; similar; budget option)

The Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic is a fantastic wardrobe staple. I’m about to order a white one. I love that you can dress it up or down, and it pairs nicely with jeans or leggings.

My black jeans are fast becoming one of my favorite fall purchases. I don’t know how I lived without them before. Of course, you could wear ponte pants or leggings with this outfit too, but I like the edgy vibe of the faded black denim. This pair is similar, although I didn’t pay that much for mine. I’m always watching for sales on premium denim, and that’s when I stock up.

Finally, the leopard pumps are old, but they’re classic. I often wear them when I want to dress up a casual outfit. These are similar.

The jewelry is from my Stella & Dot boutique. If you ever want more information on any of our pieces, please feel free to zap me an email!

While I like this outfit, it’s a little fussy for my taste. I can’t see myself getting much wear out of it. I’m going to play around in my closet and come up with a few other outfits with this fur vest that might be more practical for my casual lifestyle. When I come up with something I like, I’ll be sure to share them with you!

Meanwhile, head on over to Get Your Pretty On and Grace + Beauty to see how Alison and Cyndi are styling their faux fur vests!
