As we move from London to Milan we take a break from Fashion Week coverage to bring you some helpful ideas for keeping warm, looking great and saving money this fall. The fur vest is really making legions of fans across the globe and for good reasons –it is such a practical and statement-making garment. So when contemplating what to do with your older fur coat why not consider remodeling it into a longer fur vest? That said, with any remodeling, the extra fur is easily available to be turned into another garment or two (i.e., scarves, shorter vests, etc.)… One that note, let’s also think about the guys!
It is not a secret that menswear is also appropriating the fur vest into its contemporary wardrobe. Who can resist such a commonsense sartorial addition? It is as democratic in its adaptability as it is fashionably sound and edgy. The fur vest rocks!
So to the guys out there and the women who love them, Mom or Grandma’s fur coat hanging in the closet can make a great addition to your fall wardrobe! With a full-length coat from the 80’s-90’s you could even do His and Hers vests and still have enough fur left for a scarf or two! Who can argue with that kind of value?? The fur vest is an awesome garment and really deserves to be added to both wardrobes.
For women, we are big fans of the longer fur vests approaching a tunic length. These look great and deliver a chic Rock n’ Roll vibe without looking off-putting. These vests are also incredibly flexible and easy, from jumping in and out of the car during your Saturday errands to perfectly accessorizing that little black dress for a smart evening look. Soccer Moms will look insanely cool and chic!
A shout out to men….a fur vest may be the statement piece of the season! From suits to skinny jeans, these adapt effortlessly and offer a great palette to expose one’s sartorial sensibility.
Stop staring at the old coats hanging in your closet and head to your local fur retailer now so you can have your vest in time for the cooler temperatures!
