How to Wear a Fur Vest 2012 & 2013

One of my most popular posts here on TBF is How to Wear a Fur Vest - and it's a question I still get all the time! I continue to love the simple chic of a fur vest over a basic top, jeans and boots. But maybe this season you want to update the look a bit? Here are three new ways to wear a fur vest for 2012/2013:

1) With Bold Colors and Prints: Last year, the vest itself was the statement. This winter, try pairing your fur vest with brights or prints - let the vest anchor your look.

2) Over a Jacket or Blazer: I love the look of fur vest thrown on over a jacket (particularly a leather one). It reminds me of Game of Thrones, in the most chic way possible!

3) Inside Out: Is your fur vest lined with a knit fabric? Flip the vest inside out so just a hint of fur peeks out along the edges of the vest.

How are you wearing your fur vest this fall/winter?

  1. Love it with the bright pants! I'm totally going to have to try that ASAP!

    1. I am really in to bright pants anyway for fall & winter. Such a great way to cheer up a cold, dark day :)

  2. I'm starting to see lots of fur over jackets and I love it! I think I'll try it an some point this week.

    1. Right? I think it adds an interesting dimension to the look...

  3. Ohh, time to experiment!

  4. i love fur vests and am wearing them on brisk (but not freezing cold days) as another warm layer (in place of a jacket). i've also been layering over a 3/4 length military jacket i have--love the contrast.


  5. great idea turning it inside out!! Love them all!

    1. Glad you liked it! At first I thought, "naaaaah", but then I actually tried it and loved it.

  6. i have a faux fur vest that i haven't worn yet this season, but it's definitely cold enough now!
