When I was planning my trip to Milan, Italy last Spring, one of my must have pieces to bring was a furry vest. A furry vest is such a perfect layering accessory, and I figured that it would somewhat keep me warm and stylish in the chilly Spring of Italy. My quest of finding the right furry vest for my trip was actually harder than I thought and when I came across this gray, faux fur vest from Arden B., I was more than ecstatic. Now a year later, I am still able to integrate this vest into my outfits.
Layering in Los Angeles is a must, as the weather can go from a chilly morning to a sunny, hot afternoon. I usually keep it casual on my days of running errands, wearing comfortable leggings and a pair of boots. Pieces are often layered on top of each other to prepare for the gradual change in the temperature that is so LA.
I don’t know if fur vests are out of style for most parts of the country and world, but here in Los Angeles, where no style is out of style, a fur vest can still be on trend. Even the ever stylish Rachel Zoe is barely seen without her signature fur vest.
I personally think that fur vests are kind of fun. They can give a casual outfit more spunk, without being too quirky. I do think that when it comes to fur, faux or not, a little can go a long way. And a furry vest is just the right touch of a little. =)
