Faux fur has been a huge hit for as far back as I can remember. It represents everything that is elegant, luxurious and, of course, fabulous without your wallet suffering the consequences of purchasing the real deal. Although it can be worn in a number of different ways one of the hottest reemerging trends is the fur gilet. Gilets have always been a go-to item when it comes to staying warm during the colder months; however, they can often be incredibly unstylish and rather designed for survival purposes only. The fur gilet is just the opposite, taking the traditional gilet design and adding a stylish, sophisticated twist.
For those in-between days when it’s not quite cold enough to bundle up in a full on coat the gilet is a great solution. Every fashionista knows that too much fur can be an overkill and quickly turn a cute outfit into a cheap-looking disaster. Not only do you want to take it easy on the fur, you want to make sure you’re buying quality materials so that it looks modern and hip rather than trashy and cheesy. A fur gilet offers a chic casual look that is effortlessly stylish and perfect for everyday wear.
If you’re not brave enough to go all out with the fur (I don’t blame you), try a gilet with a delicate fur trim instead. Not only is it practical, functional and perfect for adding an extra layer of warmth to your outfit, the faux fur trim will spruce up your everyday wear in a sophisticated manner. Staying warm while still allowing for mobility and freedom of movement can often be a difficult task when it’s chilly outside which is why the gilet is so handy. Just make sure to find one that fits—and flatters—your frame, keeping in mind that slimmer is always better.
