Fashion week always has surprises in store. But for winter 2013, the biggest shock was the overwhelming amount of fur on the runways. Despite fur’s steady decrease in popularity among consumers over the last several decades, Vogue UK reported that 69 percent of designers included genuine fur in their newest collections.
Although many women affiliate fashionable fur with the likes of Margot Tenenbaum and Cruella de Vil, it is, in reality, much more versatile than Hollywood portrays.
Fur coats are classic, but you can also add fur to your wardrobe in small doses. Vests, sweaters, belts, boots and handbags with fur details are all readily available in stores and online. You can also find dresses with fur collars, necklaces with fur elements and other creative options. Casual or formal, fur is one of the chicest ways to stay warm this winter.
