Wearing a Faux Fur Vest to Work

February 1, 2016

There is something luxurious about faux fur vest (and faux fur everything!), and I love wearing my faux fur vest during fall/winter season. I paired it with jeans for a casual look, with LBD or faux leather leggings for a fun evening, or with a dress or skirt for a work outfit!

The faux fur vest wasn’t always a go-to piece when it came to work outfits, and I’ve owned this Aqua vest for many years before I started wearing it to work. I thought that it was not very appropriate for an office or court environment because it was a bit ‘too fancy’, but I was wrong. There is nothing wring in adding some luxe element to an outfit no matter where you are and what you do! The trick is in styling and, most importantly, comfortable attitude ~ I am a fancy girl and I own it. And if worn with heels and over a classic pencil skirt or cigarette pants, the look is perfect for work.

This time I paired the faux fur vest with my black culottes (love culottes!), black pumps, and a red cross body purse. I love adding colorful contrast or accent to an outfit, and red works absolutely perfectly with black and white! Playing with fabric textures and silhouettes, and a small splash of red is a lot of fun.

    I really love a good faux fur vest.I am still looking for the perfect one for me (being only 5’2 ) one that doesn’t drown out my body. However this one on you looks perfect. Love the splash of red!
