The Fall’s trend of 2017 array of stylish, patterned fur brings a whole new meaning to the, “winter coat.”
Once upon a time (faux) fur coats were quite a niche look: either super rich socialite, OR granny chic style you know. So if you secretly loved fur coats but were neither a grandma nor a rich socialite, and instead had a 9-5 job, a tube ride to work every day, and just a strong a penchant for fashion well then… too bad for you.
Designers such as Prada, who made winter a bit brighter with flashy colors, Brandon Maxwell, with the ever so edgy and sophisticated look to Salvatore Ferragamo, always feminine and chic with the gorgeous hour glass figures, know how to stay warm and look fabulous at the same time.
Sometime circa 2013 though, fashion decided enough is enough! Everyone wants to look like a million bucks, and there are more gals out there who love luxe then those who don’t, and you really don’t need to wait until you make your first million, or reach the beautiful age of say 60 to be socially acceptable in a fur coat. Nope.
So for the last 5 years or so fur coats have been the IT coats of winter, and 2017 is no stranger to that, in fact I think fur coats have never been more of a staple than today. Especially the vintage style ones and the brown-nude-latte-white-creamy-tone ones. They’re perfection.
