Fashion Thursdays: The Controversial Fur Trend

While wearing fur is always controversial, it’s never been more popular. With the economic slump, it seems the fashion world has turned up the luxury. From the runways to the streets, from real to faux – fur is everywhere. Yes it’s fabulously glamorous but it’s also unbelievably warm! Click through our slideshow for some fun fur ideas.

Bold Shoulder 

Although furs are most often seen in their natural colours, brightly coloured pieces took the runways by storm last year – and we can see why!

On the Move

If a full fur coat is a little too over the top for you, a fur collar is a great way to add some glam – just ask Ms. Wintour herself. The best part is that you can wear it with pretty much any jacket in your closet.

Fur sure

Belt a short-sleeved fur with a retro-inspired thick belt for a swinging 70’s look. Take the look even further with a pair of flared jeans!

Fur the Love of Style

For those especially brutal winter days, nothing will keep you warmer than a long fur coat. It’s not often that fashion and function unite, so we’ll take it.

Bold and Beautiful

On milder days, a black fur shrug is the perfect accent to liven up even the simplest of outfits.
