Faux Fashion

By StyleMayvin Staff Writer: Shelby Christy
Faux fur vests are a great way to achieve that luxe-look without dropping a bundle of cash. The rich appeal of the fur pays homage to its vintage roots, while still making it relevant today. When looking for a faux fur vest make sure it has an abbreviated shape and lots of volume. This will insure it has that vintage, rugged look that it is beloved for. It will add texture to any simple ensemble. We all know versatility is key and faux fur vest will provide you with the option to play down an outfit or snazzy up a look. The fact that the vest is without sleeves makes it a staple item throughout any season.

Faux fur is also a great way to be mindful of our fury friends. Celebs, like Khloe Kardashian and Kimora Lee-Simmons, have supported PETA’s efforts to raise awareness about the mistreatment of animals. They have proclaimed “I rather go naked, than wear fur” to raise awareness of animal rights. Faux fur is an option that supports this cause, while still providing you with the look and feel of authentic fur.

The treatment of faux fur is a breeze! A quick trip to the dry cleaners is all it takes to keep it clean. You won’t have to fuss over storage options either. Just hang it up in your closet and if you are worried about dust or dander hang it up in garment bag. One of my favorite faux fur vest options is by stylist Rachel Zoe. It is offered up through her QVC clothing line and is a steal at $79.00. I love that it comes in a variety of shades. Don’t be shy to try this chic new look! Bundle up this fall in your faux fur!
