Vested Interest

While perusing one evening, I came across a slide show of fall fur (both real and faux), and began plotting ways to embrace this trend in warm Arizona. After I saw the photo below, from Derek Lam's show, I decided that the most practical way to sport this trend was in the form of a fur vest, instead of a full coat. I searched the web far and wide, and came up with these three options at every price point.

The Graham Faux Fur vest by BB Dakota, $90, at definitely falls in the category of a style steal. This particular vest is very streamlined and basic, but since a fur vest in and of itself is a pretty major statement, I think the design is spot on, and it is easily a style you will turn to again and again throughout this winter.

The (Minus the Fur) embellished vest from Express, $98 is a glitzy take on the fur vest. Perfect for evening, this cozy number is animal friendly, to boot. I feel like this vest just screams, "Look at me!", but not in a bad way.

If you are looking to splurge on real fur, this Rabbit Fur vest from Michael Kors, $399, is a great investment piece. Impeccably constructed, Kors does not disappoint, and chances are, you will reach for this super soft style again and again.

Which vest is your favorite? Will you be sporting fur this fall?


  1. Love this post! I purchased a faux fur (not into sporting the real stuff)vest last winter and I absolutely love it! I will definitely be wearing it again this fall/winter!

  2. Love it! Wish I could have the Derek Lam, but will have to look for a less pricey version. Great blog! I will be following. Visit me sometime on my blog as well! And welcome to IFB. You will love it :)


  3. I love this faux far vests but I live on a tropical island sigh thus I can't them :(

  4. I love fur, but being in Canada, does not really give me the freedom to wear vests for winter. Although I am sure I'll be sporting some kind of fur coat this winter, be it a vest or its long sleeved sister.

    Love from Toronto, Canada.
