Welcome to hump day, girlfriends! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK? It’s unbelievable how quickly this year has flown. Recently I’ve been trying to force myself to just live in the moment and enjoy EVERY SECOND with hopes of slowing life down a bit. It’s actually worked a little! Although it didn’t stop my from starting to create holiday content, lol. I’ve done posts on affordable stocking stuffers for girls / guys, and I’ve also shared some of the home decor I’ve purchased!
Anyways, I finally unboxed all of my fall/winter clothes, and this faux fur vest is already hanging front and center in my closet. I made this confession on Instagram yesterday, but in case you missed it… I’ve actually owned this vest for 5 years. No joke, I’ve EASILY worn it 100 times. Which is why I kind of second guessed myself before hanging it up. I mean, I don’t think I have anything I’ve worn as much as this piece. Nor do I have many items I’ve owned this long. So, naturally, before I decided to hold onto it I had to ask myself: Are fur vests still in style?
Although they’re tougher to find this year than in the past 3-4, I say yes. Fur/faux fur pieces are winter classics – especially during the holiday season. In my opinion, fur is to Christmas as sequins and glitter are to New Year’s Eve. They’re not trends, they’re seasonal staples. What I will say, though, is that fur vests do have some company this year. Cropped fur/faux fur jackets are trending hard, as are accessories like hats and scarves. But they’re NOT out of style.
Honestly, I love anything and everything faux fur, but vests are just so wearable which is why I decided that I’m not giving this thing up just yet. I’ve styled it with jeans and sweaters (like these), skirts and blouses, dresses (especially sweater dresses), leggings and tunics, you name it! Any time I have an outfit that I feel needs a little oomph, it gets a vest (I own a black faux fur vest, too. And now that I mention it, I’m pretty sure I have a white one somewhere).
Since I can’t link to this exact one because it’s ancient (lol), I hunted down some online that I absolutely ADORE. Some are a little more out there (like that navy blue one that I’m probably going to buy, lol), but I swear you’ll get more use out of any of these than you’d probably think. If you don’t like the color options, click anyways! Some of these styles come in additional colors!! Per usual, just click on the images to shop. Enjoy, and let me know if you want me to round up other faux fur pieces like jackets and accessories – I’d be more than happy to do so!
