The extreme temperature drop in Boston today has put me in an arctic state of mind. One of the things I love doing during the winter is layering my fur vest over or under everything to stay warm as well as create interesting textures. As a layering piece, it’s a practical investment to keep you cozy on those frigid days. As a statement piece, a fur vest adds interest to any outfit with its luxurious texture.  Here I layered my fur vest over a leopard dress to break up the palette and added a jean jacket to blend everything together; this gives the outfit an understated yet chic look. The trick to wearing any fur piece is to avoid looking like Cruella DeVille through a careful balance of color and volume. Add a bit of sparkle to your accessory such as these earrings from Anjolee and you'll feel like the most glamorous girl at the next holiday party!
