Fur can feel like a bold option for some of us. While we see it complete so many fabulous outfits, it can get overwhelming when it comes to wearing it ourselves. While it seems like a simple outerwear choice that we couldn’t possibly screw up, knowing exactly what to wear it with can change your fur game for life. In my eyes, fur is an accessory that can get people’s head turning. It’s my go-to when it comes to chic-ing up an outfit with minimal effort. I’m giving you my top three fur inspired looks to get you through the winter months.

A fur vest is a staple in my closet. I get giddy every fall when I can finally start incorporating them into my outfits again. Staying casual can still mean fur, especially if you don’t want to wear several layers. I love using my basic long sleeve t-shirts and blouses with a brown fur vest to keep it simple. Thankfully, you can pull the look together with your favorite jean and boots. Looking for something more? Play up a casual look with a bold lip or boots with heels, making it easy to run from errands to dinner within seconds.

If you’re looking for a happy medium, your favorite dress with tights and booties will give you the ability to go in any direction, casual to dressy. I love this look for brunching on the weekends or a more casual dinner out. Make more of a statement with bell sleeves and a pattern when opting for a dress. The fur not only will add a layer during the colder weather but will allow you to show off your outfit still without forcing you to cover up. A ponytail and statement earrings give this outfit a fun style and accentuate the vest.

My black fur vest gets the most use during the winter months out of everything in my closet. It’s probably excessive at this point, but why fix something if it isn’t broken? I love taking some of my favorite dinner outfit options from year-round and adding my vest to change it’s season instantly. I’m a fan of black jeans and heels with a blouse anytime of the year. Thankfully, simply adding a black vest can take your closet staples from summer nights to winter nights. If dressier is your goal, don’t be scared to rock a long sleeve jumper with your fur. Play it up with accessories and some color for a more elegant driven look!

Fur doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. The best part about incorporating fur into your wardrobe is that it can be done at any price. Fortunately, this trend has been around and isn’t going anywhere, so finding a vest that you love will get you the most use throughout the colder months of the year. Knowing that one article of clothing can transform so many outfits, make this the wardrobe investment of the year! From fluffy and bold, to sleek and elegant, you’ll find that your money was well spent.
