A well-stocked winter wardrobe should include at least six tailored overcoats in a range of fabrics, cuts, and colors that'll stylishly carry you through the cold season (even if you prefer to just sling it over your shoulders). However, if you'd like to add even more variety to your coat closet, the fur vest happens to be another viable—albeit often overlooked—alternative.

Check it. Everyone's favorite fashionista Olivia Palermo is obviously a full-fledged fur-vest fan. So much so that she's accumulated quite the collection, having paired a luxe-looking one with a furry midi-pencil skirt, a high-low version with winter white wide-leg pants, a fluffy third with flared jeans, a plush fourth with a red scarf, and a cozy fifth with skinny leather pants.

We can certainly see why she's so into them, as they're incredlbly versatile. In lieu of wearing a regular topcoat, simply opt for a chunky fur vest layered over a leather jacket, chunky knit, or an army parka for an on-trend mixed-media look instead.

Check out how Palermo styles her furry vests below, then shop for one—real or faux—for yourself here at every price point.
