How To Wear Fur For The Holidays

How To Wear Fur For The Holidays

This holiday, there is one fashion accessory that will be turning heads and creating envy among even the most fashion elite in your circle – fur. Fake or real depends on you – faux will leave you with cash left for Christmas presents… and food, and many more color and style options. Real is, well, it’s real. The choice of which to wear is made by your conscious and your wallet; the choice of how you wear it is a matter of fashion. Here are the most stylish and sexy ways to do a soft, warm wrap, scarf, ring and more.

Start with the traditional over-the-shoulder shawl. These drape like a poncho, fitted around the shoulders, open down the front. They lay like a coat that has been laid over your shoulders without putting your arms through the sleeves. This creates a very glamorous evening wrap that is intriguing and feminine. These shawls are cut in various lengths from just below the ribs down to the waist. Try on a long haired pink shawl paired with a floppy felt hat and knee-length boots.

Long pelts that drape around your neck and hang down below the waistline are one of the hottest styles this year. They are little more than a fur scarf until you belt them with two wide leather belts and pair them with thigh-high boots and skinny jeans. Think chinchilla.

Of course, the fur coat is not to be forgotten or overlooked. It is, however, taking on a new look for the season. Jet black alpaca in a thick, full, long-sleeve, waist-length coat worn with beaded boots is the trendiest coat on the scene as temperatures continue to fall.

A vest is a less dramatic, but equally sexy way to wear your furs. Vests are best worn over turtlenecks with clothes that are fitted with clean lines and coordinating colors. Let your fur do the talking in a bright color. Belted or tied with an extra wide, ornate ribbon or sash, vests are back on the fashion plates.

Fur is not limited to articles of clothing. It’s also a chic way to accessorize. From head to toe, it’s adorning hats, jewelry, and footwear.

Hats are reminiscent of the traditional Russian headwear in both large winter hats and trooper hats that have tie-up flaps. The large winter hats are bold and fun. The trooper hats, with flaps up or down, are eccentric and hip.
Fur boots are always-in-style when the winter months set in. This season there are two predominant designs, a knee-length lace-up boot with fur lining that escapes dramatically through the tongue all the way up your leg, and the alpaca mid-calf boot so easily identified at ski resorts the world over.

Perhaps the most fun is the furring. This little beauty is an amusing addition to the fur family. It is a tuft of fur attached to a wide ring band. These are showing up with evening wear, ski wear, and jeans. Fur rings are versatile and add a punch to almost any ensemble.
