Fall is already here and you are probably ready to look positively divine wrapped up in a warm fur while defying the chilly air. Nothing is going to make you look more fabulous and warm you up better than a soft and furry coat plus, the advantage of wearing one is that you can simply throw it over a silk blouse or a cashmere dress. There is no need to layer items excessively under your cocoon-like coat, and that’s a luxury on cold days!
This season fashion designers want you to look spectacular in your furs, but they are making your choice a little difficult with the avalanche of shades, prints, silhouettes and details they created for fall/winter 2014-2015. If you want to treat yourself to the ultimate opulent wardrobe must-haves, here are the hottest (literally!) trends for this season:
Classic Shearling Jackets
The shearling jacket is definitely going to make a statement as fall’s most versatile item. Whether you opt for a classy A-line coat or a tough, edgy biker jacket, shearling outwear will prove sheer genius when it comes to keeping you warm and cozy this season. Burberry Prorsum, Prada and Ralph Lauren beautifully reinterpreted the shearling jacket and left us swooning.
Who are coats with patchwork effect, graphic prints or hints of bold colors aimed at? Women with guts and a true passion for fashion. If that is you, please feel free to apply! Roberto Cavalli, Versace and Fendi incorporated wild influences into their designs and updated the classic fur vest and coat in the most surprising way. Ready to create a fashion stir, ladies?
Classy Stoles and Modern Muffs
Dangerously seductive, stoles made of mink, chinchilla and other types of fur made a comeback this fall and they are ready to cover your shoulders in the chicest way possible. Looking totally glamorous on special occasions, especially if we think of the white ones, perfect for blushing winter wonderland brides, stoles will put you on the style map this season. Just like muffs, the most elegant hand covers there are, these will help you channel your inner Russian tsaritsa.
Maxi coats have been around for a while and they don’t seem to be going anywhere yet. If you are a lover of the oversized style, feel free to sashay in a blanket-like coat made from your favourite material looking all fashion fabulous. You will adore the softness and warmth it gives you, so don’t shy away from anything larger than life, because this fall the bigger the better. Look for inspiration at Celine, Alexander McQueen or The Row to get a feel of what we are so excited about. Crawling inside a warm coat or vest is like wearing a stylish hug. Choose the shape, color and style that flatters your silhouette and look show-stopping during the cold season!
