Vests continue to serve as favorite layering tools. And it's time to get furry. Leather, denim, and studded vests are too weak right now — it's high time fashion meets function. I recently scored a cheap blond fur vest from American Eagle Outfitters, it even has a cute plaid lining. I've pretty much been throwing it over everything, and I'm trying to find a chichi enough event to wear it with a long gown a la Elizabeth Hurley. But Nicole Richie models it for everyday, if you can stop staring at her mammoth white Balenciaga and focus on her foxy furry.
