ALL IN THE DETAILS: Uptown Funky Furry Vests

Uptown funk you up, uptown funk you up! Just like this groovy, Bruno Mars song says, it’s time to funk-a-fy your style. One fashion trend that I personally can’t get enough of this winter is furry, fuzzy vests. This blast from the past ’70s clothing item can liven up any ensemble with a retro spin.

Vests have always been a chilly season must-have, but lately the vests have seemed to have a little more fur on them than usual. This season’s show stopping accessory has even been written about in Teen VogueFurry vests are definitely an essential  for many reasons. First of all, they keep you warm; that extra layer of fur isn’t just decorative, it actually works. Most importantly, they are so fun! Furry vests really add some pizazz to any outfit and go with almost everything. These vests come in a multitude of colors and can be paired with jeans or even a dress for a more upscale, uptown look.

This funky Fashionista is rocking the furry vest by pairing it with a neutral sweater and some light wash, distressed jeans. By adding the vest to the neutral sweater, she takes the ensemble from drab to fab! This outfit is also great for a great day to night change. She added details to the outfit by accessorizing with this adorable tassel necklace and brown booties.

I love this outfit as well because it has a very warm, soft color scheme, which is a nice contrast to the cold weather! Also the pop of green in the tassel necklace is an unexpected but appreciated detail. She ties the look all together with the creamy, fuzzy vest, which adds depth and makes her look like a total trendsetter. Let’s not forget about those beautiful booties. Booties are another must-have this season, another item that is great for day or night use. You really can’t have too many pairs!

How To: Take your look to the next level by taking some style advice from the past. Add a furry vest! Great for a productive day running errands or a funkalicious night on the town. You can pair a furry vest with jeans and a sweater or even throw it over a dress. It’s a perfect item to dress up or down!
