Fur: Our Suggestions and Inspiration

Words by Tasha Mercer, #styleSPLOITATION Contributor


The time is here once again to dig into our closets and pull out what matters most– The Fur. Yes, that’s right the glamorous coats, the trendy vest hanging up and let’s not forget our fur boots that are never going out of style. Fur has been trailing around for years, from grandma’s dramatic floor length fur coats to punk-rock leather jackets accessorized with fur stoles.


Fur continues to make its rounds each year so much that it’s constantly incorporated into men and women’s everyday wardrobe. Even fashion designers such as Gucci, Christian Dior, and No. 21 have featured big delectable fur moments on the runway.


Both faux and real fur has evolved making bold statements with a variety of eye catching colors, lengths from waist all the way to the floor, prints and patterns as well as accessories.


The amazing thing I think we all can appreciate is faux fur and how it is extremely stylish and chic and appears in our day to day fashion. Fur isn’t just for the elegant or the millionaires and billionaires anymore. Thanks to retailers and designers creating real and faux fur for inexpensive prices, men and women have the option to dress up the basics.


Accessorizing with the latest trends such as: the shaggy chubbies with a pair of denim jeans and nice pumps, the hippie chic patterns that bring a simple sweater to life, and let’s not forget the classic modern leopard print that take our looks to the next level.

A night on the town with a nice chic dress, fur-laced heels and a waist length fur will never get old. Fur has become new and invigorating. We have options from basic faux fur hooded coats and fur trapper hats with the finger-less mittens to the edgy biker-chic jackets with the fur trimmed collars, or what about our modern fur coats and glamourous vest to set the tone.
