Fall Fashion: The Faux Fur Vest

Members Only Faux Fur Vest

Available at: nordstrom.com

I know it sounds kind of weird, but there's this big faux fur trend sweeping fashionista circles. By "faux fur trend" I don't mean a fur trend, and eco-conscious fashion types are interpreting that to mean faux fur. Nope. I mean the actual trend is fur-that-isn't-fur. As in, if you wore the real stuff, you'd be missing the trend boat. And the trend within the trend is the faux fur vest, which is suddenly the fall outerwear accessory to have.

Faux fur vests are everywhere, and cover a wide variety of styles and price points. I've seen everything from faux fur that's meant to look super obviously fake (neon colors, crazy pseudo-animal prints that do not exist in nature) to high end faux that's almost indistinguishable from the real deal. The faux fur vest has become a central piece in many lines, like the new Rachel Zoe for QVC, and has even filtered down to key mass retailers like Express and Forever 21. This is one trend that has caught on quick and is spreading like wildfire. Do you have a fabulous faux fur in your Fall closet? If not, you may already be behind the times... and we wouldn't want that, would we?

One of my favorite faux finds is the Members Only Faux Fur Vest, pictured at left. It is perfectly shaggy and suitably luxe, but priced affordably. Paired with jeans, a tee and some chunky gold jewelry, you'll be vibing Hollywood starlet in no time.
