Fur, fur and more fur is where our fashion story begins this week, Fashionistos. For centuries, women have been the focal point for this fabulous fabric — however, lately, we are starting to see fur ensembles seep into menswear. Check out John Galliano’s fall 2012 collection for full on fur moments. This Fashionisto is wearing a coat that looks quite similar to one of the looks featured. Can you find the look I’m talking about? Fashionistos can rock fur just as well as the Fashionistas can!
Fur is a beautiful texture that can add a little spunk to your look, but there are careful steps to consider before leaping out in your finest fur. To ensure that your fluff is a hit every time, be cautious of how you pair it. The last thing you want is to come across like a mishmash. Unless you’re willing to spend big bucks for a full length fur coat like my Fashionisto is sporting, I suggest this fur collared coat from Topman as an easy alternative.
This Fashionisto has paired his fur coat with a casual pair of blue jeans. Try the Brett Modern Bootcut In Clean Jean from 7 For All Mankind. Nobody knows their jeans like this company does. Their fit is amazing and you can wear them in so many different ways. Let’s take this Fashionisto’s direction and wear them with the 1490 Dr. Martens boot in smooth black. The combination of these pieces will have you on your way to riving the 1930s.
Hint: Go bold or go home is my motto Fashionistos! If you’re daring enough to wear fur, I say take it all the way. A full length fur coat is big statement, but when done right like this Fashionisto, it’s to be a hit. Pair a full length fur coat with a skinny blue jean and Dr. Martens and then wrap an eye catching belt around your waist to break up the monotony, like the one by Prada here. Are you daring enough to be fur-bulous?
