Winter weather has officially bombarded us and the beautiful, yet freezing mounds of snow have, in fact, discombobulated our fashion sense. Resist the urge to throw on the dreaded sweatpants and UGGs boot combo – don’t lie, we’ve all resorted to it in times of desperation (Guilty.) – and instead, take the high road. Use the cold weather to your advantage to show off your fabulous fur pieces because fur is back, and it’s back with a vengeance.

This Fashionista effortlessly draws all attention to her while flaunting this flawless winter ensemble. A refreshing change from the typical winter jacket, the vest is the perfect piece to tie together her look, transforming her outfit from ordinary to pure Fashionista material. Not to mention, it surely keeps her from shivering to death in the below-freezing weather. She really makes the fur her focal point by complementing her vest with sleek leather leggings, a simple white sweater and a tight-knit, pink infinity scarf for a pop of color and some extra warmth. This look is the perfect way to bear the dropping temperatures while still stealing the fashion spotlight.

The fur vest is a must-have staple this winter season and luckily for you, you can flaunt it for just about any occasion. Wear it casually like this Fashionista, or dress it up for a night out on the town by switching out the leggings and knee-high boots for a flirty leather skirt and the perfect pair of booties. Not totally sold on the faux fur vest just yet? Test out fur with a more simple piece like this snood that’s sure to add spunk to any outfit and have you falling head first for fur.

Take advantage of this trend while you can, because before you know it, we will all be back to the AC-cranking, poolside sweating days of summer.

Spotted: Akris pre-fall 2104 showcases numerous classic pieces, including a to-die-for fur vest.
