Winter style is tough. I can attest to this statement. I’m currently living in New England and it seems that the snow is never-ending; however, I’m here to provide you with a silver lining. Winter style isn’t impossible. It may seem so when you’re struggling to wake up for you 8:00 a.m. class, but it’s not. Look to this gorgeous and chic Fashionista for proof that it’s possible to look amazing in the midst of a blizzard. She owes the credit of her fabulous look to her fur vest. It’s eye-catching, cozy and sophisticated. What more could you need for a winter look?

Fur takes your outfit up a level and for whatever occasion too, whether it’s for class, a meeting with a professor or grabbing lunch with your friends. Not only is it versatile, you can match it with a variety of different looks. Leggings aren’t the only option in the fur vest category. You can layer the vest over a chambray button-down, a flannel or a chunky sweater. The options are endless. I also admire this Fashonista’s layering skills, especially with the sweater tunic underneath. By adding a pop of gold with a statement necklace and tying it all together with neutral leather boots, this look is a perfect A plus.

What makes fur even more fun are the various types that are available. Fur vests come in so many different kinds of prints and colors that you can be guaranteed to find one to match your sense of style. Whether dark purple or zebra print, it’s definitely out there waiting for you to find it and then it’s up to you to style it just so. I tend to lean towards the neutral area because then the outfit options truly are unlimited. This Fashionista’s look is the perfect example of this and who knows what you could style once you try out the fur trend.
