Ok, I know…  worst title ever.  But cut me some slack;  my brain has been on overload lately and I’m proud just to be writing at all.

A couple of days ago I went shopping for a dress I have been in love with for over a month.  Naturally, they didn’t have it.  I have been to two different locations and looked online without any success, but I digress….

I did find something else I loved though and hope to add it to my collection very soon.  Enter the fur vest.

*A cute, inexpensive option from forever 21*

Now because this is from Forever 21, and therefore fits into my budget this is a faux fur vest, which works perfectly for me as I can’t make myself wear real fur.  But regardless of whether you go faux or sport the real thing, this is a look to keep an eye on this season.

This is typically so far removed from my normal style that I was actually shocked by how much I liked it; I guess I’m evolving.

The next day I was reading through the October issue of Lucky Magazine and came across an article with Michael Kors.  He listed the 5 things every woman should have in her wardrobe and right there at #1, was a fur vest.  Actually it was a “coat you can wear anywhere” but he specified that a fur vest is great because “you can wear it inside if you’re chilly or outside over a slim coat”.  I feel like it might be fate telling me to run and purchase said vest this weekend.

So how do you wear a fur vest?  Here are some images I found while doing a little research.

* Here is a take on the “over a slim coat” look found on Apparel Therapy*

*And here is a bit of a casual take on the fur vest.  Found at Babble*

*And finally a more formal look, very Breakfast at tiffany’s.  Found at Ali Express*

And here is an idea for how I hope to style my own fur vest once it is safely in my possession.

This is a very luxe take on how I would actually be able to afford to wear this look.  But I love the look of light neutrals paired with gold jewelry and minimal makeup and hair.  It’s clean yet classic, simple yet chic.
So tell me, will you don fur?  Do you prefer faux or the real deal?  Do tell!
