A few months ago my way-more-fashion-forward-than-I-am friend, Michelle, mentioned the need for a new staple in her closet: a fur vest. At first I thought it was the kind of thing she, and only she, could pull off. I've always stayed away from furs because I don't like feeling like I'm wearing my dog AND there's that whole allergy thing that always comes into play with items like that. Needless to say I was skeptical.
Man oh man was I WRONG. Fur vests, jackets, boleros (real OR fake- I prefer the latter)... are EVERYWHERE and they are the more-than-perfect finishing touch to any winter outfit, dressy or casual. I know the season for these things is just about over, but after fashionistas were shown sporting them all over NY Fashion Week I can't help but feeling like I missed out on some kind of huge fur-mania bulletin. Next time Michelle warns me about a trend, I'll be sure to take note ASAP.
