If you live in one of those crazy climates where you get 2 feet of snow on Monday and then are wearing shorts and a T-shirt in 60 degree weather on Friday, a faux fur vest could be your best winter accessory. When the temperature drops and the snow is falling a faux fur keeps you warm and toasty and looks fabulous with everything from jeans to dressed up work or party outfits. When the snow melts and the sun shines bright, the same vest can be the perfect outdoor piece – I mean it is WINTER after all – to keep you sufficiently covered against the elements.
Faux fur vests tend to be lighter in weight than their organic counterparts (think of a fleece vest or jacket) and come in a variety of colors, patterns, cuts and styles. Piperlime.com has some really cute vests including one by Eight Sixty:

The best part about faux fur vests is the price! So much more reasonable than going natural. I’ve been wearing my faux fur vest almost every day and it works with a lot of style options as well as weather situations. So if you are looking for a mid-season wardrobe update (or just a late Christmas present!) check out Piperlime.com or any of your favorite retailers for their faux selection.
