So, fur vests are in this year. Or was it last year? I may be a little behind the times, but I pick up on trends eventually ;).
I don't always adopt them, though. I am not a big fur person (stop picturing a large, furry person, although I'm not that, either)--I've never loved the fur look, so when I saw stylish stars and trendsetters in the magazines wearing fur vests this year I didn't imagine I'd ever pull off the look myself.
Like this--I would never wear this, but it's cute!
I did see this look on Pinterest, though--this is getting more wearable. Shorter vest, clearly not a real fur so not super heavy or guilt-laden, great other pieces with it...
And even H&M has a furry vest that I would maybe, when I'm feeling adventurous, consider wearing.
But anyway, not until I saw some of these fur-featuring, but not overly furry, outfit ideas did I really consider actually wearing something with fake fur on it.
See here, just a fur collar makes this a fun sweater vest...
And this coat is lovely and girly all by itself, but the fur collar adds a little something.
And here's a laid-back look with a fur collar, again on a sweater.
Anyway, my point is, I want to pull it off. I want to try the fur fad while it's around!
So, last weekend, I stopped by JoAnn and bought myself a whole yard (wow, that's a lot) of a nice soft brown cheetah-ish plush fake fur. It is lovely and quite soft for the cheap poly stuff. I have several projects in mind for it...
Because, of course, when I see a trend I like, I will DIY it!!!
Oh, but please, share your tips for wearing fur or fake fur if you have them!
