By far, one of the trickiest trends of the season has to be the faux fur vest. In all their luxurious, glam splendor, they have a tendency to visually add pounds in all the wrong places. If you adore the look of this season’s hottest faux fur vests but don’t feel like you can comfortably pull them off, a hybrid sweater style is your answer. To play down a full bustline, choose a style that can be worn open or that features faux fur around the collar like the Gap style below. If your primary concern deals with the midsection, choose a belted, panel or cropped style. With a little strategy, every figure will find a flattering faux fur style for fall.
