Style Right Now: 28 Ways to Wear Fur Coats

Fur coats aren’t just for the society set. Fur coats and jackets (both faux fur and real fur) are showing up in outfits of every incarnation, well beyond the milieu of ladies who lunch. Off-duty models in particular favor the fur coat trend, along with fashion bloggers and street style stars in general. Rather than breaking out the mink to attend the opera, modern fur coat enthusiasts favor shaggy fur coat styles shrugged on over denim (torn jeans? even better), leather leggings, and if you’re Jenna Lyons, perched on your shoulders while gliding through the city in a feather ball skirt.

The fact is, fur is warm. If you can rock the fur coat trend, especially in Boston, life is a lot more comfortable. I have friend who wears her grandmother’s hand-me-down furs along with vintage fur coat finds, all over Boston in winter. Back when I first met her, about ten years ago, I found this a novel concept. Clearly she was ahead of her time. (Or rather, given her proper lineage, carry on tradition, but with a twist).

I remember when I was around seven, thinking a rabbit fur coat was the height of style. I could probably get away with the look now. I’d certainly pair my (theoretical) fur jacket with my winter beanie, like some of these street style specimens. Have you seen the crazy multicolor chevron fur jacket by Elizabeth & James? It exceeds my wildest childhood dreams.

I may be wrong, but it seems all the fuss over not wearing fur and resulting proliferation of faux fur coats and jackets has quieted down. Perhaps PETA quelled the population of its animal killing inclination (unlikely). Rather, what I perceive to be decreased interest in the cause is more likely the result of public boredom. Or simply the fascination with fads and trends have prevailed.

Here are 28 ways to not only wear fur coats, but rock the fur coat trend wholly and fully.

fur-a -portable-package

Portable Package blogger Irina Lakicevic of Norway goes for seriously shaggy shearling jacket by Karl Donoghue (kind of matches her tousled locks) over deceptively casual denim (Saint Laurent hi-rise skinnies & Ralph Lauren denim shirt). And a tiny sliver of a clutch.

fur-and-leather-joan-smalls

Model Joan Smalls strikes a pose in a  black leather and fur jacket with contrasting fur sleeves (and a leather men’s style vest – ick) after the Chanel haute couture show in Paris. The plaid flannel shirt underneath is a nice, rugged touch.

fur-hood-nyfw

Off duty model Daria Strokous during New York Fashion Week in black leather leggings and sumptuous fur parka with Nanouk style hood. I kind of want to crawl in there with her.

fur-in-green-collage-vintage

Off duty model in emerald green fur coat during New York Fashion Week Fall 2015. Could a mere mortal pull off green fur? I wish I could. Color certainly puts an interesting twist on the fur coat trend. (CollageVintage)

fur-faux-blue-Stockholm Street Style

This blue faux fur coat has sporty varsity style but kind of looks like a rug. (Stockholm Street Style)

fur-grey-converse-yellow-purse

I could get on board with this style blogger who throws on shaggy grey fur over leggings, gray Converse, neon yellow handbag, and messy bun. (Frassy)

fur-beanie-sunglasses-black-turtleneck

Nicole Richie is perfect and polished in luxe fur coat, black cashmere turtleneck and beanie, and glam cat-eye sunglasses.

Olivia Palermo sports a black fur vest, Hermes exotic skin clutch, and pristinely polished red fingernails.

fur-in-white-wiht-leater-stockholm-street-style

This shaggy white fur jacket looks like it would work over any outfit. I kind of love how she’s wearing luggage colored boots, instead of the obvious black with black. I’d never have thought to do that. (Carolines Mode)

Processed with VSCOcam with e3 preset

Looks like an Olsen twin, but actually it’s fashion blogger Maja Wyh wearing Ralph Lauren denim, the longest shirt ever, and a luxe vintage fur coat. Oh yes, and the must-have accompaniment to fur—barely there kitten heels.

fur-jacket-ripped-jeans

Olivia Palermo sure loves the fur coat trend. Here, she pairs a gray and white fur jacket with distressed denim skinnies. Looking amazing as always.

Statement maker Jenna Lyons attends Solange Knowles’ wedding in a sweeping feathery skirt and fur jacket worn over her shoulders, natch. (Elle)

fur-long-black-asian

Super shaggy black fur. I love how her swept back bun echoes the lines of the fibers. A red lip, pastel blue fingernails, and she’s done.

fur-stole-sea-of-shoes

Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge grabs a fur stole that’s almost as bright and shiny as her hair. Clutch by Carlos Falchi and an Aerosmith tee (that her mom borrows too).

Street Style: 28 Fashions With Fringe

It’s not that I love fringe. I definitely don’t in the hippie fringe jacket and fringe suede boots kind of way. But there is definite appeal to the oversize black clutches with fringe hanging along the bottom. Absolutely minimalist, but not. It’s probably not all that convenient; I imagine the fringe gets stuck in taxi doors and wrapped around one’s fingers, or stuck in the bag’s own zipper, but those fringe clutches sure do look great in street style photos. The fringe skirts are interesting. Definitely a one or two season (at most) trend. The pencil skirts with the fringe swishing around the knees and legs are sexy. The fringe denim jacket with baggy jeans. Not so much.

Here are 28 street style photographs featuring fringe clutches, fringe skirts, with a sprinkling of fringe jackets and tops.

Style Right Now: 20 Street Style Looks from New York Fashion Week Spring 2015

The last time I went to New York Fashion Week, as I may have mentioned, it was the mid ’90s, all Marc Jacobs grunge and the advent of the Internet. It’s of course a whole different circus now, with street style ranking nearly as high in importance (if not more for certain bloggers and hanger-oners), than the designers’ carefully orchestrated fashion shows themselves.

I’ve garnered a handful of decent show invites for New York Fashion Week over the last couple of years, and am thinking that maybe (maybe) next fall I might make the fashion pilgrimage. In the meantime, I rely on the plethora of fashion week street style imagery online, from which I’ve pulled 20 looks. These are not over-the-top extravaganzas, but tasteful, on-trend ensembles.

I’ve included lots of identification notes and some commentary on these New York Fashion Week street style shots, along with a lot of great links, from Instagram accounts to shopping resources, so definitely click through when the look or the personality appeals. Happy fall, or Spring 2015, I should say.

nyfw-spring-2015-the-cut-normcore-street-style

It’s normcore all right. Basic blah, but still stylish. Could those medium wash jeans be any more nondescript? Back in February, The Cut described the look like this: “Clad in stonewash jeans, fleece, and comfortable sneakers, [art kids and middle-aged, middle-American tourists]  looked like they might’ve just stepped off an R-train after shopping in Times Square.” Of course, this is a ridiculous trend unless you’re an edgy European and/or a model. YOU will look like the frumpy tourist.

Style Right Now: Slouchy Sweaters with Skirts

There’s not much better than a chunky knit over leather leggings in terms of casual fall style, except maybe pairing said chunky knit with jeans. A chunky knit sweater works well with a fitted, short or mid-length skirt too. Even a cropped sweater with a maxi.

But what about wearing a slouchy sweater with a looser, longer skirt? An untucked cable knit sweater with a plaid midi? I wore a look like that to a college interview, thinking I was very collegiate. (Yes, an ivory A sweater with a plaid midi skirt. Hey, I got in and went to that school.)

I’m not sure I can pull off that look today. Actually, I’m certain I cannot. But on some of these women, the style looks modern and fresh. I’ll stick to chunky cable knits with jeans and leggings, but please, if you can go pair slouchy and slouchy, please do. Here street style photos of slouchy, chunky knit sweaters paired with a mix of skirt styles.

Style Right Now: Birkenstocks Revival

Not at all the granola type, I never even considered Birkenstocks. Even during ’90s grunge, which I wholeheartedly embraced (after all, as a fashion editor in New York, I was at those runway shows), Birkenstocks were not on my style radar. They were shoes worn by people in Oregon. To me, Birkenstocks were the shoes of guys with long hair and thick wooly socks. No thank you.

I’ve stuck to that for the last twenty years, even as the social currency for hikers, makers, and locavores has risen. But now . . . Well, looking at these street style shots of indisputably elegant, chic, and just plain cool women, I’m re-thinking the Birkenstock. Maybe.

Birkenstock sandals hail from Germany, though to me they have a Dutch aesthetic. I must admit its minimalist vibe with these equally streamlined outfits. Should I?

The Birkenstock sandal of today was developed in 1964 by Karl Birkenstock, whose grandfather registered the brand in 1774 in Germany, where they are still made. They’re designed with contoured cork and rubber footbeds that conform somewhat to the shape of one’s feet. It became popular in the U.S. among 1960s hippies. In the early 199s the look was revived. (Wikipedia likens that trend, popular among high-school and college-aged Gen Xers, as comparable to the popularity of flip-flops today.) Birks showed up on European runways for Spring 2013. The Birkenstock sandal has now made its way to street style around the globe.

Style Right Now: 15 Digital Print Looks

For about a year now I’ve been putting together roundups for the Sunday Boston Globe spread called “The Enthusiast.” I alternate every other week between fashion and home decor items. This season has been particularly fun. While I’m not a huge fan of spring fashions for myself (much prefer to wear gray and black styles topped off with a beanie, but when it comes to pulling together stories, florals and brights are much more fun.

This week I’ve been working on sourcing digital prints. (It’s not always that easy to find the more interesting looks around here; everything I use must be available in and around Boston.) Getting into the spirit, I pulled a bunch of street style images of digital prints, from landscapes to florals to psychedelic blurriness. If you love them, make sure to check back tomorrow for an online shopping guide for digital print dresses.

Style Right Now: 32 Coats Worn As Capes

For a few years now, bloggers have been writing about how fashion editors don’t exactly wear their coats; rather, these slaves to fashion drape said coat over their shoulders. This may well be the influence of Jenna Lyons (see last Friday’s post: “Jenna Lyons’ Signature Over the Shoulders Look“). I wonder if these ladies find it annoying (though at least not painful like heels). Can one make decent progress on a city street wearing a coat as a cape? Or is the coat constantly sliding off? I may just try it out, but not until (if) the weather gets warmer. I’m thinking a full-length Patagonia puffer isn’t exactly the look we’re trying to achieve.

Style Muse: Jenna Lyons’ Signature Coat Over the Shoulders Look

For a few years now, bloggers have been writing about how fashion editors don’t exactly wear their coats; rather, these slaves to fashion eschew sleeves, draping said coat over their shoulders. Jenna Lyons, style muse, creative director of J.Crew, she of the most blogged brownstone, has certainly embraced the look of late. Wearing her coat over her shoulders is almost as much a signature style as her nerdy black glasses. Let’s see how Lyons does it, 15 times.
