These days it seems like we all need to make a statement! We have seen classic shoes and accessories take on a new spin with colors, fabrics and embellishments so it’s no surprise that this Fall our old mink coats are now “yesterdays news”. Check out any runway show from this past fashion week and I dare you to find a designer that didn’t give us some boom boom pow slap in the face with a sick fur spin. Designers have really stepped up their game and reworked the lux classic into new daring and exciting looks. These aren’t your grandmas’ pelts, but now edgy takes on colors, silhouettes and innovative ways to rock what is proven to be the warmest (and most fabulous) winter fabric you can ever drape yourself in. Real or fake (go real, trust me) don’t stash your old goods but now wear them with a spin.  Add a little oomph to your life with 5 fabulous ways we saw the runway rock fur this season!

Gear Up!

Fur accents at michael's consignment shop for womenFur works wonders! Seriously, with so many emotions like it's warmth, comfort and caress it’s wearable therapy. Dries Van Noten, Diane Von Furstenberg and Alberta Ferretti all showed us - that whether you carry a stole, wear killer gloves or add a shawl or scarf to an already unbelievable coat, you just scored major fashion points for fall. The more the merrier (ya know, like diamonds!) so double or triple up with more than one stylish lux pop.

Go get yourself a dope graphic mani at Vanity Projects so that you dig into your new furry friend with complete style.

Granted us New Yorkers looooove black but there is more to life then the same old. So stand out from your crowd next weekend at brunch and make everyone turn their heads.

Spot On!

animal print furs at michael's consignment shop for womenAnimal Prints continue to rule the jungle this season. Considered Fall's most powerful trend, leopard print isn’t just for lingerie or accents anymore. Alexander Wang and Stella McCartney both showed up with the print that says, “be daring”! It’s seriously as easy to wear as black! Add color (like a red dress) under your lep – it says to others, take me seriously; but that you don’t take yourself too serious & that you are ready to play.

Cozy Up

shearling at michael's consignment shop for womenShearling made a big comeback this season according to the likes of Rebecca Taylor, BCBG and Coach. The fluffy material has had its moments but this season, from sweeping coats to shorter styles you simply can’t go wrong. Beyond warm and extremely wearable, shearling acts as a leather or suede coat with a fur liner all in one! So get your retro on – pair with gorgeous jeans and beautiful boots, some killer shades and a double dose of flair.
