I love fur. Don’t hate me, but I can’t deny myself the indulgence of a decadent pelt. And I’m not bias. Real or high quality faux, I am here for it all.
Let the fur fly where it shall this Fall as fur was not reserved to coats nor to natural colors. Furs in shades of Reds, Blues, Greens and even the occasion Fuchsia were infused in fur choices.
What’s a little a color in a sea of monotony? Add some pep to your step with bold hues in fur skirts, vests and stoles ala Fendi and Marni.
Anna Sui, Tom Ford and Roberto Cavalli added dimension by playing color mix masters in the form of oversized coats in interpretations that ring with the sound of their brand’s sense of charm.
Revert back to the ’60s with Shaggy furs with rounded shoulders as couture takes on Mr. Snuffleupagus style. Bring the look down to your level courtesy of Gucci and Alexandre Vauthier.
But if nouveau shapes or colors are simply not your taste, stick to the classics. Badgley Mischka, Donna Karan and J. Mendel offer pieces that will never go out of style. A belted vest or a midi-length dress says sophistication without trying so hard. Can we please have a moment for this Reem Acra adornment?
If you’re still looking to partake in the trend without going off the deep end or sticking to tradition, perhaps try a blending of the two. A neutral hue with unique architecture may give you the hint of individuality with a dose of vintage you’re looking for. Altuzarra and Alexander Wang took mittens to new heights with hand warmers that looked like winterized lobster claws for the brazen fashion enthusiast.
A fur peplum? Capes? Patch work sweaters? Why not? Take your cue from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Peter Pilotto or Marc Jacobs.
How ever you decide to freak it, just make sure it says “you” and not “I copied and pasted it because I want you to like me.” Every trend has the possibility of looking ordinary, but when you add your extra somethin’ somethin’, it elevates to extraordinary. So own it!!!! Check out more inspiration plus my take on the trend.
