Brr! A tip: Layer a vest over a coat ! The best is a fur-trimmed vest, as it is lightweight and warm. This kind of LAYERING is practical, comfortable and warmer than the more common way to wear it.

Necessity is the mother of invention, yes? YES! I recently received this fabulous, faux fur-trimmed vest as a Christmas present from a friend. I have been wearing it ever since, almost every day. It is the best layer; light as a whisper. I have been wearing vests over coats for a few years. I like the ease of it. When you get to a destination, you check you coat, and keep your vest. Voilá, the perfect piece to keep you warm indoors is right at your fingertips!
Indoors, I look elegant enough, even in denim, because of my fur-trimmed vest. It is faux fur and super soft. I am at the New York Palace Lotte. My friend and I were walking downtown for an errand, and ended up passing by. The lovely destination was a lark, we passed it and both said it was a favorite spot! And so we stayed a bit. Champagne or cocoa, a tough choice!!
This hotel is grand and I am glad I am wearing my deep indigo denim, rather than distressed ones. I did not dress for a fancy place. This faux fur-trimmed vest elevates any outfit. When walking here, I was warm. When you layer a vest over a coat, you are not at all constricted, and it makes a long walk comfortable. Some shots below of the grand hotel.
The day was brisk. But the snow, almost melted from the recent storm, made walking 20 blocks, easy as pie.
Indoors I am warm and happy ! Glad to be here, even if by happenstance.
Last week, by mid afternoon, it was warm enough to shed my coat, and just wear my vest. What a luxury to sit outside without so many layers on, and to feel the sun on my face! The warmth did not last long though!
I will close with a shot of a black and white photo. Everything looks so stark without color. This translates to my mood sometimes, too. When I read the news and start feeling down, I visualize something brighter. I add color to whatever is in my mind , and I feel better.
So what do you think of my styling tip? Do you layer a vest over a coat, or do you do the more traditional thing. and wear it underneath?
How do you wear your fur-trimmed vest?
There is no right or wrong, I am just sharing an alternative. We ladies like options!
I hope you are warm and bright!
