Style How To: Faux Fur Vest...

The faux fur vest is a trend that's here to stay--at least, for a bit...  I purchased mine about two years ago, and it's the ultimate "go to" clothing item.

The secret to styling a faux fur vest is not to over-style it.  In other words, I'm more likely to pair it with a pair of jeans than with anything too fussy (e.g. a formal gown or frilly dress).

That being said... Even when wearing it with jeans, a treasure such as this deserves to be combo'd with elegant items such as a cashmere sweater (or silk blouse) and a statement piece of jewelry (or two).  Here, I'm donning mine with a strand of pearls and a vintage bracelet.

Check out this past post to view another way I recently styled my vest.  It demonstrates how a monochrome outfit also provides a fab backdrop for this chic piece.

Share with me your secrets for styling a faux fur vest.  Would adore hearing them!

Joy and peace, T.
