This winter has been a BEAST so far. Here in NYC we’ve been pummeled with snow, bombarded by artic air, hit with an onslaught of blustering winds and extremely low temps. In the midst of all this winter weather madness I’ve been trying to stay sane, duck and dodge this crazy flu season and concoct ways to stay warm and stylish all at the same time. (Side note 2 things I LOATHE-being sick & cold weather).  

 While visiting one of my beloved celeb fashion sites, there was my fav style icon wearing a fur vest courtside. I found myself yearning for one and wanting to recreate her look. All I could think was a fur vest is just what I need. It’s perfect-both warm & stylish plus it was something my closet was lacking.  So I went hunting and found so many cool options at great prices.

 Yes, I’m a little late to the party but I’ve seen the light. Interestingly, I’ve never been one who ever cared about fur vests. I’ve seen people rocking them before and didn’t really care one way or the other. Even when I mentioned wanting one now in a convo-the reply was “really?” I’ve never had a problem with fur pieces. I just never considered it for myself. As much as I hate the cold and look for ways to stay warm, I don’t know how I overlooked this essential wardrobe piece. Every closet should have one, they’re so easy to style.

But since I’m diving in, I’ve got to start planning how I’m going to make the most of my new purchase. I’ve been super focused and transfixed imaging how I’ll be wearing this piece all season long.

 Whether you’re like me and giving this cold weather staple a try for the first time- or you’re someone who’s been loving the fur vest I’ve styled some looks showcasing the versatility of vest.

 BTW I’m most excited about layering mine over a moto jacket when the weather warms up a little ;)
