Style Advice of the Week

As one of the hottest fashion trends of 2013, the fur vest has crept on the runways of established designers, such as BCBGMAXAZRIA and Band of Outsiders. The vast number of styles as well as the different types of faux fur make it a must-have this season. That being said, I hope to see more Fashionistas wearing this statement item once the snowflakes begin to fall!

Heading to an interview, this Fashionista strutted the streets of Oakland. She kept it simple by wearing solid black tights underneath her high-waisted pleated skirt. Her short skirt was complemented with a cropped sweater and tall taupe boots. Adding an edge that the interviewer would not overlook, this Fashionista completed the outfit with her fur vest along with a statement necklace and subtle arm candy.

For those of you who have a special occasion to attend, give this Fashionista’s look a try. To dress it up, switch the boots to a pair of chic wedges or heels. Along with formal wear, the fur vest can also be incorporated for a more casual setting. Wear it over any basic attire, such as leggings and a stylish tunic or a comfortable sweater dress and knee-high socks. Finish the look by accessorizing with your favorite pair of boots and piece of jewelry.

Regardless of whether you’re dressing to impress or just want a cozy jacket to throw on, the fur vest is an impeccable addition. The idea of wearing a fur vest may come as a bold choice to many so it is up to my trendsetting Fashionistas to initiate the daring look on campus!
