As January comes to a close, the wind is still whipping and the streets of D.C. are freezing, making it hard to look remotely chic. It can be especially difficult when you actually need to look nice for something. Enter the fur vest: it’s super luxe looking and adds glamour and polish to the simplest of looks. This gorgeous plum color will go with all of your neutrals, but adds a pop of color. More importantly, the fur will keep you warm, even on the bleariest of days.

This Fashionista pairs her fur vest with a simple black top, dark skinny jeans and a classic black riding boot. The outfit is very simple on its own, but the vest takes it to another level. Everyone has a black T-shirt or sweater in the back of their closet and we know collegiates like their skinny jeans. Investing in a stunning vest will dress up every outfit and add an extra layer of warmth against the elements.

As for accessories, this Fashionista keeps it simple and classic. A delicate necklace and chunky gold watch add just enough glam to the paired-down look. Whether you’re going to class, want to look extra fashionable or heading out for a night on the town, adding a fur topper will give you that je ne sais quoi. Personally, fur vests always remind me of supermodel Kate Moss and who wouldn’t want to look like Kate Moss for a day?
