I know you’re probably thinking, “WTF! A faux fur vest for summer? Why in the world would I ever want to wear that, Liz?”. Umm, because they’re awesome, first of all. And second of all, a fuzzy wuzzy vest is one of the easiest and chicest ways to add another layer of interest and texture to your outfit.
If it’s a bajillion degrees outside, of course you’re going to sweat your tush off. But when the sun goes down, you’ll be feeling cool as a cucumber. Plus, it’ll keep you warm on those particularly breezy summer evenings, and who doesn’t love that?
Here, I chose a super soft white faux fur vest paired with matching high-waisted American Apparel leggings and a blue crop top tank I scored from the LF sale for like $12.
A word to the wise though: stick to faux fur vests in neutral, summery colors and don’t buy a big, bulky one that makes you look like the Abominable Snowman because well, that would just be weird…
