Some seasonal trends become so over-worn that, after a certain point, just seeing them (at least in the wrong incarnation) can be a bummer. Among them: bird prints, ugly sandals, and, at the top of the list, fur vests.

It makes sense that fur vests became a thing (that we ourselves endorsed), considering they’re cozy, flattering, and anyone can wear them—but they became so ubiquitous circa 2010 that it was frankly a bit nauseating. Still, it would be a shame to retire vests altogether. That’s why we found 18 versions that are fur-free and just as cute.
