How About a Faux Fur Vest for Fall!

Thinking of adding a faux fur vest to your fall wardrobe? I am, but I need to be careful, with my height (5’11”) and age (let’s just say over 40), I don’t want to look like a Sasquatch or a snowball!

Here are a few styles I’ve come across while browsing around…

Some things I need to consider:

Sporting a pear shape is tough – this means the vest needs to be fingertip length so as to not make a larger looking hip.

Being in the prime of life, I want to show that I’m a fun loving gal, while bringing respect and dignity to my look. This means I won’t be looking at a thick or fluffy fur.

My choices are also limited by the number of times I sneeze while trying on a wide variety of fur lengths, the fluff factor and how much the fur sheds as I move around in it.

I’m envisioning an Audry Hepburn, “funny face” look – remember her scene dancing in the Parisian lounge with the beatniks? That’s the direction I’m thinking – not exactly a beatnik – but semi-form fitting long sleeved black turtleneck sweater on a black knit skinny slack. My vest of choice would be a curly, short length black tunic, with a mid neck collar. No fluff ball look , sleek and slenderizing. I’m planning to wear leopard ballet flats to complete my look.

Here’s the faux fur vest I like the most!

My daughter tells me there are special undergarments to be worn with a knit skinny pant, so I will be on the look out for a modern day girdle,  if I’m catching her drift!

  1. Great idea Candy! I bought mine from QVC – Rachel Zoe’s Fashion Week collection, two years ago, and I love it! It’s also black and I can’t wait to start wearing my fall clothes so I can wear it again!
