You Said: No to Faux Fur Vests

October 12th, 2009


luscious-faux-fur-vest_101109We asked: Would you wear Faux Fur Vests?

You said:  No to Faux Fur Vests, with a 77% to 23% vote.

Style tip? As the perfect layering piece, the Vest is a key item for Fall.  Shaggy, faux fur vests, however, aren’t for everyone.  They’re great for adding a punch of texture to your look, but they also add visual weight.  If you dare to wear the faux fur vest, pair it over a fitted top with high armholes for the sleekest look.  On the bottom, try another fitted piece - such as straight or skinny jeans, or a slim fitting skirt.  Finish off the look with a pair of tall boots or heels so as to visually elongate your legs.

Next question: The Cage Heel is a hot catwalk trend that has made its way from the runway into real stores.  But what do you think about these uber-strappy shoes?  Tell us, would you wear Cage Heels?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    Wow, I missed this poll. I LOVE my faux fur vest … but it’s cropped and I think that makes it look, well, less faux somehow. As for cage heels, the TRULY cagey alarm me … but super-strappy sandals are a blast.

    agree – i adore mine. now they have some great faux options that don’t feel like plastic… actually saw a jacket from H&M that surprisingly feels great.

    Agreed that it’s best to try these out in person to make sure the faux fur is of high enough quality. Good tip about H&M, Georgie!

    Sal – would love to see what you wear with your faux fur vest!

    Where faux fur still advocates for fur. Seeing as much of it you can tell unless you ask. Lets all move together to stop the fur trend and end the suffering of millions of animals skinned ALIVE each year for a sick fashion trend.

    Don’t be ignorant. Know the facts. Fur/faux fur says “I don’t care about the suffering of animals”.

    Faux fur still looks like you’re wearing dead animals. It just doesn’t belong in a human body, seems like you killed and stole the skin from other animal.
