It happens every year. The days get shorter, the nights get longer, and the temperature gets much, MUCH colder. Some people call it annoying and uncomfortable. Other people simply call it winter. One thing’s for sure, whether you consider yourself fashion-forward or otherwise, everyone who goes outside during the cold winter months needs a coat to keep them from freezing to death.
But for the fashionistas of the world, a warm winter coat is synonymous with one material: FUR. Fur is warm, beautiful, and luxurious, and a must-have in any winter wardrobe, and guess what? Fur does not have to stay confined to just a coat. Here are some fun ways to incorporate fur into a lot of other parts of a fashion lover’s winter wardrobe.
This season rock a fur-trimmed dress out on a date or to a fancy holiday party. The fur will keep you warm and cozy, even if your dress is a little bit revealing. Also it will give your outfit a festive aura which is perfect for the holidays. Wearing fur on a dress is a daring move, but if you bring your confidence along with the outfit, you’ll be sure to turn heads… in a good way.
Want another great way to wear fur this winter? Buy yourself an extra-warm pair of furry snow-boots. A trend that was originally started by Arctic natives long before fashion design was even a concept, Mukluks, or sheepskin and fur boots are a really practical way to keep your feet safe from snow and ice. Pair them with skinny jeans or skintight leggings, and your favorite sweater, and you have a stylish outfit that you can wear out during the day OR at night. Not to mention, you can’t beat the comfort level of this outfit, or the level of warmth.
Lastly, try spicing your winter outfits up with the help of some uber-fashionable fur accessories. Some examples of great accessories to add fur to are scarves and shawls. Weather the whole thing is one big furry heaven for your neck, or there is just fur trim on the ends, this is a great example of a warm and practical winter accessory. You can also brave the winter season with some cozy fur earmuffs, for those extra icy days when you can barely walk outside. Want even more ideas? Keep your head warm with a fur-trimmed bomber hat, or a furry headband. And on that same not, warm your bottom half with fur-trimmed socks or leg-warmers.
Since the cold of winter is beyond our control, you’re best off trying to find the most fashionable, warm and comfortable way of dealing with it. It looks like this season; fur is the answer you’ve been looking for. And for all the animal lovers out there who are opposed to the use of real fur in fashion design, all of these great looks are available in faux-fur as well.
