Century 21 stores, for those not lucky enough to live in suburban New Jersey or Long Island, are a magical chain of discount stores that sell designer clothes at up to 65 percent off.

It’s time to cast your iPhone’s Polaroid photo app aside and truly channel your retro glam-rock essence — dive headfirst into our round-up of the best in faux-fur vests.
