I remember the first time I rocked a faux fur bomber to a fraternity party. No, it was not an animal themed party. I was just channeling my inner-Olsen sister, all while getting fashion props from my fellow Fashionistas and awkward glances from all the guys. I’m sure they all thought, “Who is this crazy girl wearing a fur jacket?” It was in that moment I made a declaration—guys just don’t appreciate fur.
Fast-forward a few more years then I would like to admit and I spotted this Fashionisto who proved my frat-party theory wrong. Perhaps, it just takes a true Fashionisto to understand the power of fur.
This Fashionisto’s light tan fur is definitely a statement piece. The light color really pops in contrast with the rest of his look. The oversized collar adds some drama and dimension to the silhouette. For a Fashionisto sporting a fur, it is important not to go overboard and wear a full-length mink. That would look more costume than chic. Make sure the coat is a moderate length to keep the fur masculine.
In cold winter climates and below zero temperatures, a fur coat comes in handy in more ways than one. Follow in the footsteps of this Fashionisto and you will be sure to stay warm while having some serious style, fur real.
Hint: When wearing a fur, balance out the look with some more masculine elements. This Fashionisto’s fedora and brogues do the trick!
