As fall is closing in on us here in Vancouver, I can't help but notice some of the jackets around town. One of my most recent obsessions are fur vests - I think it's mostly because it looks incredibly warm and it also just so happens to be right on trend. Normally I stray away from wearing vests, as they remind me of when I was a kid being forced to wear bright polyester vests under my already massive jacket during prairie winters. However, since that was a long time ago, I've managed to overcome my fear of vests and have embraced the undeniable chicness about them.
This week's item encompasses everything that fall and the beginnings of winter should be: warm, cozy, and of course, on trend. This vest is part of the ONE by Collection by Shopbop and is definitely a must for the cold weather approaching. What I love about this item is how easy it is to wear - it's also a great way to avoid wearing huge sweaters that look like they belong to your dad. The collar is big, so it lets the vest drape so that the placket stays open and this gives it a bit of a casual feel. So, does this vest meet all the requirements? Warm: check. Cozy: check. Chic: check. Not a hideous polyester neon pink: check. Looks like a flying colours pass to me (no pun intended).
If only I had an excuse to "need" to buy this for my next skiing trip. Maybe I should learn how to ski first - anyone want to teach me?
