"Fashion at the speed of life"


The fur vest has graced every runway this fall and we loved the fact that it quickly trickled down to the lower end stores. It is amazing that I thought this trend had peaked at two years ago when I found a molted brown version at the lower end boutique at Sawgrass mall. Here it is back in full force in a range of prices.

1. The high end fur vest

Alice + Olivia added metallic charm with fur and priced it at $396.00. Chanel, Prada and Nordstrom offered prices in this range and higher.

2. The mid-priced fur vest

Steve Madden did it right and well with the use of luxe fur and bright bold colors. O-Fur Multi Vest, $78 (Steve Madden)

We find alot of fur vest in the 65 to 98 dollars. Stores like Macy’s, Dillard’s and even Sears offered a variety of styles and brands.

3. The low-end fur vest

Charlotte Russe has this feathery vest for 39.50 (above). Kmart has a Jacquelyn Smith brand for 35. Forever 21 has fur vest starting at $22.50(below).

The usual part of this list is that faux fur quality doesn’t shift much from the extremely expensive to the low end. In fact the main difference is just how much fur they use and the delightful play on texture and color seen in the higher end furs. Still, our lower end prices are a lot easier.
