Trend How-To: The Fur Vest

Whether its ‘crimped Mongolian’ or ‘finely feathered’ these furry gilets were one of the hottest trends of last year’s F/W ’10 Fashion weeks in New York and London.
From the moment we spied fur detailing on practically every runway we have been praying for the colder months to reach our end of the hemisphere, just so we can pull on these delicious torso warmers.

That’s right, it’s not just fashionistas like Kate Moss, Ashley Olsen, Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie that have the sartorial backbone to pull off this primal trend. The fur vest is now one of the most versatile items in your wardrobe.

Wear the vest over a slim fitted leather jacket and skinnies for an edgy approach. For a more boho look pair it with a soft tee and this seasons flare jeans or with a printed maxi dress. You can even wear it to the office over a crisp white shirt and tailored pants or slip it on over a glitzy mini for a glamorous night out.

So, as we move into autumn give in to your animal instincts and take a look at these un-fur-gettable vests.
