Today, Fashion Reporter Allison McNamara and Entertainment Reporter Matthew Rodrigues are sharing a few of our favorite vests that we want to get our hands on — stat. Take a look at our top five, then let us know which one you like best! On Allison McNamara: A.L.C. sweater, Urban Outfitters skirt.
A luxe faux fur vest is a necessity in every Winter wardrobe. We've seen trendsetters like Nicole Richie, Rihanna, and Rachel Roy incorporate this furry layering pieces into their outfits — so we headed to Nordstrom at The Grove to style three different versions of the coveted-cool faux fur vest. Whether you prefer traditional, cropped, or colored, we have a vest for everyone in this installment of Currently Trending. On Allison: Theyskens Theory top, Proenza Schouler skirt, JewelMint necklace.
When you're looking to add a hint of laid-back luxe to your look, nothing does the trick quite like a faux-fur vest, especially in black. Elle Macpherson and Nicky Hilton were both spotted strolling the streets — in London and LA, respectively — rocking woolly black vests over their layering pieces. They're a cozy, bohemian-chic addition to any casual ensemble. Ready to cozy up? Shop similar black faux fur vests below.
Working a faux-fur vest or leather skirt isn't particularly easy to do, so I have to give Fab reader MissBehave some extra style points for sporting the two together. She looks super stylish and perfectly on-trend in her black leather mini, which she paired with a long-sleeved white tee, black tights, and wedges. Topped with a furry vest, her look goes from chic to absolutely fur-bulous.
Congrats to MissBehave!
Everyone else, submit your looks, and I might feature you on FabSugar!
EBay and I are constant companions. She has been my go-to for awesomely unique vintage finds for years now. I have to admit though, she's not easy. Finding that one-of-a-kind piece always takes research and patience. I did some heavy duty searching and found an arsenal of amazing pieces to keep you fresh this Fall. Fingerless gloves, a cool slouchy beanie, and a faux fur vest are all on the menu. Tackle time.
The Flintstones would be so proud to see how their Stone Age fashions have influenced some of fashion's best. Peep Jeremy Scott's Spring '10 collection to see what I'm talking about. The quirky designer featured an awe-inspiring line based off the hit '60s cartoon complete with bone barrettes, bright colors, and animal prints. No doubt, Wilma and Betty would be super stoked to wear his kitschy confections. Thankfully, you don't have to buy designer to achieve the Flintstones' archaic look. Seek animal prints, faux-fur vests, and natural chunky jewelry for sexy Stone Age appeal — Wilmaaaaa!
Nothing alludes to wintertime better than a warm, quaint fireplace. This week, The Green Dove takes us to a Winter Wonderland, complete with the coziest pieces out there. Fuzzy bags, snowflake sweaters, sock boots, and house slippers are all in the bunch. My favorite, though, is the Express Gray Faux Fur Vest ($118, originally $168). It's one of the most luxurious ways to bundle up right now.
