Steal the Look for Less: Fur Vest

Fur vest are everywhere this fall, in stores, on the run way, and now out of the street. Woman are looking super fashionable out on the street in their fur vest. And what better way to look fashionable and to stay warm with with a great fur vest.

Many of the ready to wear fall 2010 collections had fur vest incorporated their collection.

Banana Republic:

You can get this fun fury look without the wildly crazy prices and without looking like a animal that craweled out of the forest.

The great thing about the fur vest is that you can dress them anyway you want. You can totally girly them up or you can dress them down. The first look on the left gives you an option for a girly casual fun look. This look can be worn for cocktails with the girls or even a casual Friday in the office. Pair your fur vest up with a sweater that has personality like the Tophsop Knitted Zigzag Sequin Jumper ($89). Pull the whole look together with some skinny jeans (or jeggings) and ankle bootie wedges. Also pair up your outfit with a bag that sparkles like the Juicy Couture Chain lock mini bag ($148).

The second outfit gives you the option to play dress up with your vest. Pair up your fur vest with a sweet little dress. Try a dress that has a Peter Pan collar like the Topshop Long Sleeve Peter Pan Contrast Collar Tunic ($55). To really make your outfit stand out do print tights (like the black sheer bow tights- $9.66) and print satchel bag (like the Nordstrom Calf Hair Satchel- $179). This will help give your outfit a boost of personality but still keep it girly. To really make this outfit sweet do a mary jane type of shoe like the Jeffery Campbells Mary Jane Platform Pump ($90).

The third outfit gives you the option to keep it simple. This look is good for meeting friends for brunch or for running around doing errands. Jersey maxi skirts help give a look of simplicity but still keeps the look chic. If you are daring enough and looking for something other then a simple top try a corset top like the Topshop Jersey Top ($35). This gives your look a flirty twist to something so simple and chic. Don't forget to wear a cardigan over your corset top. I also love pairing up maxi skirts with ankle wedge booties. And why not pair up a fur mini bag like the Lilly & Franc faux fur satchel ($89)? It helps pull the whole look together.

Stores like Forever21 and H&M are great places to start looking for runway looks without the designer price tags. Keep your eyes open for deals. And if you want designer wear keep yourself updated on what sample sales are going around your area. Sample Sales are great places to get designer wear for fantastic prices!
