Hi, I'm Hillary Cooper, a New York City-based fashion stylist, here to talk to you about great ways in which to wear a fur vest. Client of mine, always ask me this question. I work very closely with a furrier who loves to custom make fur jackets and coats for my clients. Vests are an essential part of a woman's wardrobe, and the terrific way to wear this, is as a layering piece. In the fall or in the spring, when it's a little chilly out, wearing it in place of a cardigan is such a chic and elegant, sophisticated look. This is a perfect example of wearing a chocolate brown fur vest over a black sweater. And black and brown look terrific together. You can accessorize with fur gloves, which it looks fantastic I think, with a vest. And then, it's also great to wear a messenger bag, especially a textured, a textured leather, exotic leather messenger bag. But to make it casual and to keep it sort of as a day time look, the other good thing to do, is to do a legging with it. Looks terrific with an animal print legging and a pair of chocolate brown or black boots, a flat boot, a high boot, a boot that goes over the knee. All great combinations and a terrific way to make a fur vest a very versatile piece of your wardrobe. Could also be a layering item, could also be worn under a down jacket. Terrific and unexpected to wear fur cuff gloves, a fur vest and a down jacket as a piece over. With leggings, with jeans, looks wonderful with dark denim. And I love brown, it's a little bit warmer for most skin types, and unexpected. Everybody expects you to wear black, but it's really fun to wear it in a color. Silver gray is terrific too, fox is a great fabric, a great color for most people. And if you have a suede fabric on the back side of it, you can flip it either way, also be worn under a jean jacket. But faux fur, which comes in all different fun colors, could also be great too. Don't be afraid to wear a fur vest, it's part of your winter wardrobe.
