A fluffy vest, or how it is most commonly known as–faux fur vest, has become a staple piece in my wardrobe. I love these type of vests so much since they can be used all year round either for casual or dressy occasions, and they keep you looking trendy. Since fluffy vests are very eye-catching they look best when worn with simple items. Solid colored leggings and denim jeans (without tears) are ideal pairings for a faux fur vest. It keeps the attention on your vest. Keeping this rule in mind makes for a balanced outfit. Now when it comes to dresses the rules do change a little, prints are welcomed, a flowy silhouette works best, pleats are a plus, and over the knee boots are a must. Try it next time, you’ll love the outcome. I recently styled an ASOS dress like this and I even topped it off with a wide brimmed hat. I loved it!
Currently I’ve been using my fluffy vest as a layering piece, over a ribbed turtleneck and underneath a thick coat. On this day I decided to wear it over a white cashmere turtleneck. The day wasn’t as cold, and it wasn’t raining either. Therefore, I left my coat at home and made my fluffy faux fur vest my statement piece. A cozy vest is not only soft and very warm, but it’s also super feminine and pretty. I kind of wanted to stay away from a “pretty” or “girly” type of look on this day as that’s the look I go for most of the time. So instead I opted for a more laid back look with zippered moto leggings and oil slick buckle booties. Every time I wear these I feel like such bad a**. 🙂 lol
