Our favorite item for finicky cold weather is a vest. It keeps you warm enough without making you feel stuffy. This season faux fur is making its grand return. Fur can be somewhat intimidating to wear because it is puffy, big, and draws attention. That’s why it’s so important to find one that fits both your style and your size. You don’t want the vest to swallow you completely, but fur vests look best when they aren’t tiny and tight. To help you out we’re featuring our top five faux fur vests for this roundup of seasonal style buys.

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? This shaggy white vest will pop against black sweaters paired with black or leather pants for a modern look. The white will also look cozy against lavender, emerald green or maroon tops. The softness of the white and the vest’s texture makes it suitable for a coffee shop setting, or it can be dressed up with embellished leggings and platform heels for a night on the town.

Attention ladies, this vest has pockets! Every girl needs an essential black vest. It can go over just about any dress to make it a more formal outfit. Our favorite look is with a long-sleeve grey t-shirt dress with black leggings and knee-high black boots. Complete the look with a floppy hat and pendant necklace.

If you’re not sold on going all-out faux fur, then try this vest that mixes in faux leather. The solid black gives this vest a more edgy, grunge character that looks great with ripped black jeans and a black sweater. We’d wear this bold outfit to a local concert or when touring around the big city on a rainy day.

Emerald green is one of the season’s hottest colors and when mixed with a faux fur vest you’ll be the most stylish woman around. When wearing a colored faux fur vest you want to make sure and only pair it with neutrals. Emerald green will look best with solid black, light grey, or nude.

This super shaggy vest is more of an investment, but if you’re looking for an incredibly chic piece that is just as much versatile, then this one will be well worth it. We love how it’s styled above, over a darker purple dress with sheer black tights. But this vest can also be worn with black bohemian bell bottoms and a black tunic. Whichever way you style it, this vest is a boho girl’s dream come true.
