25 Days of Winter Fashion: Casual Fur Vest Outfit

Welcome back to my 25 Days of Winter Fashion! I’ve teamed up with Cyndi over at Grace+Beauty to bring you 25 winter outfits, and this is day 2.

You may remember this fur vest. I first wore it with a burgundy tunic and black jeans with leopard pumps. I like that outfit in theory, but it felt a little fussy to  me. This time I’m trying a more casual take on the fur vest trend. I feel like this one is more youthful.

Wearing the fur vest with a long-sleeve white tee, distressed black jeans, and ankle boots immediately gives it a cool-casual vibe that is modern and fun. I’m so much more comfortable in this outfit. I can totally see myself wearing this out to dinner or lunch with friends or even to the mall for Christmas shopping.

Here’s a side view. I don’t mind that the shirt hangs beneath the fur vest. It all plays into the casual vibe.

I carried a crossbody bag in Port for a fun punch of color, and then I just added my favorite pendant and a chunky silver link bracelet.

The ripped jeans are a little bit out of my comfort zone, but I’m really enjoying them. A lot of people ask me if they can wear ripped jeans in their 40s and 50s. I always say, I think it’s more about personality than age. If you like them, you can totally pull them off. If you don’t, feel free to sit this trend out.

While these AG Ankle Leggings are not on sale at the moment (I snapped them up when they went 25% off a few weeks ago) there are quite a few AG Legging jeans on sale at Nordstrom. They’re price matching the Bloomies Friends & Family Sale, which is also worth checking out! My fur vest is included, and of course they have tons of premium denim as well as designer shoes and handbags.
