I think it’s safe to say that fur is not going out of style any time soon, which is great because it can be a fantastic way to add some pizzazz into your fashion choices. From fur ponchos and fur jackets to fur gilets and fur vests, there’s a fur for everyone. It might seem intimidating at first, but fur is actually very adaptable to virtually every style and occasion. If you’ve never incorporated fur into your outfits before, there are some easy ways to join in on the fun.
First you can add some lavish glamour to a look. Try pairing your favorite little black dress and heels with a fox fur gilet, and you’re ready for a stylish night out. Or maybe you want to elevate a simple outfit. By adding a fur coat to your skinny jeans, band t-shirt and Docs, you can take a less than remarkable outfit and turn it into something exciting. That way you can look like glamorous even if you’re only heading to the grocery store. Also fur should be fun and playful, so don’t always relegate yourself to brown and black. Adding some colorful fur pieces could be just the kick your closet needs. Because no closet is complete without a hot pink hooded fur gilet, for those times when you need a Victoria’s Secret meets Game of Thrones vibe. During spring and summer, you’ll want to stick to sleeveless designs, like fur vests and fur gilets, so you don’t overheat, but come autumn and winter, you’ll stay nice and toasty in your big fur coat. It’s basically the fashion equivalent of a delicious mug of hot chocolate. Also if you are trying to hide some extra pounds (who isn’t) fur can give you a slimming effect and draw attention away from any problem areas.
You might be thinking this is great, but I don’t have Kardashian money, so there’s no way I can afford to wear fur. Well you’d be wrong. You can pack your closet full of fur without draining your bank account by knowing when and where to shop. A great way to find some killer deals is by going to thrift stores. You can pick up some unique pieces for rock-bottom prices. Just make sure you spray a little Febreze on them so you don’t smell like the previous owner. Think ahead and buy your furs in spring and summer when stores are getting ready for the warm summer season. They usually cut costs drastically which means when winter rolls around, you still have money to go out and show off your new looks.
As you can see, there really is never a bad time or place for fur. Just like everyone should have a great leather jacket, you should also have a great fur piece to complete any wardrobe.
