A Touch of fur

If you know me you know that I love fur, a FUR GIVES A GLAMOROUS TOUCH TO ANY OF YOUR OUTFITS

.A 1929 story in Vogue stated that wearing fur showed “the kind of woman you are and the kind of life you lead”.

These days Fur isn’t just for dressing up anymore. It’s for doing everything in your everyday life.

Now that fur is on “Trend” not sure if I agree with the above quote from vogue. Everyone is wearing fur buy not because of who they are but merely that its cool and fashionable to wear right now.

The trend has unsurprisingly been wildly popular among street-style influencers during the current fashion season.There are camouflage-pattern fur coats, tie-dyed fur coats, and fur coats in an optical illusion M. C. Escher box pattern. Oh Can’t forget the fur shoes hat, bag, key chain you name it there is fur on it.But most prominent are the statement coats. As Vogue noted, the statement coat smacks of “throwback, hip-hop vibes,” a trend that many celebrities of late have been adopting again (especially Cardi B)

The days where fur mark stature and wealth or well behind us. The fur of today, whether real or synthetic, is more mainstream, easily attainable.

There’s a wide spectrum of ethical views, even among those who condemn fur. While some argue that wearing vintage fur may be acceptable, since the animal has been. dead for years, I also share this beliefs and respect that they’re other people that have strong opinions about fur.

Ethics aside, the divisive conversation over the use of fur and faux fur can overshadow another intriguing phenomenon: the fact that fur, faux or otherwise, is no longer confined to autumn and winter.These days it can be used to convey looks that are both lavish or exceedingly eccentric.

Trends aside Fur coats and stoles from the ’50s and ’60s evoke the lux, decadent glamour of Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor and that’s what I strive for when I add it to my outfits.
