The Midwest knows a thing or two about beautiful autumns – colorful trees, crisp (aka less humid) weather and glamorous garments. This time of year, the laid back sandals and sundresses of summer make way for pants, jackets, boots and cool-weather accessories. This season, go beyond your usual wool coat, and dare to make a fashion statement. Here are several ideas for a new outlook!
Calling all Colors: When it comes to fur this fall, go bold or go home! Vivid colors are in, giving you an excuse to brighten-up your winter wardrobe. Hues like teal, saffron yellow, red and shades of purple are super haute! This gorgeous Bisang velour sheared mink walking coat with matching chinchilla trim combines classic styling with captivating color. Pair it with this Badgley Mischka evening clutch for an ultra-glam look. Stylish eye candy!
Pattern Play: Like bright colors, patterns offer an exciting new seasonal take on fur, giving you another great way to modernize your fall and winter outerwear. Think color blocking, graphic details, repetitive patterns and other attention getting looks. Michael Kors designed this not so subtle fabulous black, white, royal blue and grey “camo” mink wrap. For a more natural patterned look, consider a garment like this sculpted sheared mink jacket – the colors are neutral, but the pattern makes the statement.
Mixed Medium: This season, go ahead and mix-it-up! Designers are playing with combined textures and materials. For example, create a stylish stand-out by adding fox trim to a sporty sheared mink vest or a luxurious cashmere cape . And when it comes to texture, combining natural and sheared furs creates visually interesting patterns. You’ll also notice the mixing of materials – like leather, cashmere and wool – all designed seamlessly around fur. This Loro Piana cashmere cape with Norwegian fox trim is a stunning mixed-medium piece that works for day or evening wear.
Dabble in Details: While your fur coat may be a timeless classic, this season, spice-it-up with some little essentials. For fall, it’s all about head-to-toe accessories. This chinchilla trimmed hat is uber chic, but don’t be afraid to dress it down, say, with dark tailored jeans and simple leather boots. Speaking of boots, since they hit the United States with a vengeance in the mid-2000s, sheepskin boots can be found on every toddler, teen, 20-something and mom in the country. This fall, take a new twist on the old favorite by opting for an accessorized pair. This shorter boot with exposed fur along the side hem and top is functional with a bit of spunk. Fun details, like the leather strings, tassels and silver beads also add some flare. Nothing says “accessorize” like a fabulous handbag.
