20 Style Tips On How To Wear A Fur Vest

After years of hesitation and second-guessing myself, I finally bought a fur vest. I had decided this year was the year I was going to buy one, and when I found an amazing Sanctuary piece on sale, I knew it was a sign. I love my fur vest because I think it’s perfect for fall weather. It’s a great layering piece that will keep you cozy without suffocating you, and it’s also a nice statement item that will catch the attention of others. Oh, and obvious side note: my vest is faux fur. I don’t wear animals!

Anyway, if you also own a fur vest or want to buy one, you probably feel a little confused about when and how you should wear it. I get it, I’m in the same boat. I have a few cute outfits in mind for my vest, but I’m also left a little clueless. How can you incorporate a fur vest into your fall wardrobe without looking too over-the-top or silly? Here are 20 style tips on how to wear a fur vest, with outfit ideas from bloggers and more:

    Fur is definitely taking over although who else finds it intimidating? Yes I certainly do although I recently received a faux fur waistcoat and I’ve come to love it.

    Check out my blog for another way on how to style the fur waistcoat so we can all join the craze!

    Hi everyone!
    I am a big lover of fur vests, but i must admit that i did not like any of those in the pictures you posted. The outfits themselves are quite inspiring in fact; but more or less all these vests are horrible, for the shape and for the fabric. It almost looks like that a couple of those girls have made “good” use of some old teddy bear or some peluche dog!
    For i own some myself, i can definetely tell that there is much better faux fur quality around; it is important to choose a good quality item both in fabric and in feature, because if not the figure is not flattered at all.

    I just moved to Germany and I love the fur fashion. Great post and amazing style ideas! I liked most of the looks, however i have a hard time deciding which temperature is right to wear these outfits. They look cool and all but sometimes it’s just too cold during fall season and I guess I’ll have to still throw a coat or jacket on top when I’m outside. I could try when it’s warmer but I’m afraid i might be too early for the fur fashion. So what temperature do you think is best to stark rocking these outfits?

    Did you raise the animal in a tiny wire cage yourself? Causing it to endlessly run in circles and wound it’s little paws? And did you finally deliver it by hitting it in the face, crushing teeth and bone, and then skin it alive, leaving it to die in excruciating pain? Or did you leave it to someone else? Ah…. who cares, just as long as you can feel cozy right?

      I only wear faux fur so you can calm down now.

        I am truly sorry, and I do apologise. Should have read your whole post before posting. Good on you you don’t wear animals 🙂 Have a great 2015.
