Fashion can be a fickle thing. What is “in” and what’s “out,” what’s “chic” and “faux pas,” change like the seasons! The world of fur fashion is no exception. If you’re worried about the “fashionability” of that flowing fur mink coat, don’t be! Mink coats have been in style for years, and are still a symbol of elegance and luxury. However, maybe you’re the kind of person who wants to be a little more subtle with your fur fashion.
If so, The Ramapo News may just have some ideas to keep you at the top of your fashion game without overdoing it. Fur-lined sleeves are very “in” this season:
“As the weather gets colder and hands become the most vulnerable part of the body to the autumn chill, fur on the sleeves of a shirt or sweater as an accent serves two purposes: both fashion and protection from the cold.”
Fur sleeves come in two forms. The first one is more traditional; it features fur running down the entire length of both arms, and sometimes runs stylishly across the front and back of the chest and back. In the second, the fur only runs down about half the length of the arm, forming what looks like the shoulder pads of a suit of armor.
The Ramapo News also points out how furry footwear can style your outfit:
“Furry flats, boots, slippers and heels are all over the runways this fall, and they add just the appropriate amount of texture to any look. The one thing to remember is to not overdo the fur trend.”
The beauty of this added texture is that it can be used to make even the plainest of outfits look good!
If you want to still keep in line with the likes of the fashion divas of old without looking like you came out of the 50’s, there is always the classic stole:
“Fur stoles add a feminine touch to any outfit; they keep one both warm and fashionable. Stoles should be worn over the shoulder…”
Why over the shoulder, you ask? Wearing a stole over the shoulder is a way to keep the iconic style looking fresh and elegant in the ever-changing world of fashion.
As you can see, there are many different ways to keep your look subtle but still classy and sexy. Even better, you don’t have to break the bank to do so!
