For the second installment of my Fall Essentials series, I HAD to feature a faux fur vest. When else but Fall do you get the chance to wear this fun layering piece? It keeps your core warm without feeling too bundled up. I purchased my vest at Express a couple of years ago (I styled it four ways in this post.) As it's slightly bulky, I like to wear it with a slim fitting shirt - like this lightweight one from LOFT. I paired this with my faux leather leggings and Hunter boots - perfect for the brisk fall weather!
Although my exact vest is no longer in stores, there are a lot of cute and affordable options currently available - these 4 are all from Forever21... I'm especially loving the white one!

If faux fur is not your thing, you can still get in on the vest trend - try other options such as shearling, utility and quilted styles:
|quilted / utility / shearling / tweed|
And if it's already coat weather where you live - you might want to check out this pretty pink coat I found at H&M - it's under $50! Disclaimer though - I'm still trying to figure out if I should keep it myself - I love the color but I don't know if the raised collar will work well with the scarves I love to wear!
