With the cooler weather, people are always looking for pieces that they can layer with, easily remove and most importantly, that will keep them warm. A luxurious, fashion-forward piece that has been on trend this season is a faux fur vest.

At first, this Fashionista was all bundled up in a black wool coat. Once she removed her coat, she revealed the loveliest vintage vest. The vest is a soft granite color that looks wonderful against her white jeans. My favorite part is the extra piping detail, which makes the vest stand out even more.

The most desirable feature of this trend is arguably its versatility. While a vest alone will ward off the cold, it is also the ultimate layering piece. Note how this Fashionista has chosen to wear a plain long sleeve underneath and a simple fringed scarf on top. In this case, the vest works to add texture and a slightly vintage feel. She completes her outfit with some killer L.A.M.B. booties. The silver detail on the boots complements her rings and helps to tie the whole look together.

When in doubt of how to amp up your wardrobe, get some inspiration from this Fashionista, and try adding a faux fur vest to your personal collection!
