As fashionistas seek shelter from the storms, sleet and slush which are no doubt a landmark of winter in the True North, the runway trend of fur has returned once again. On the season’s catwalks, furry scarves and stoles made a splash, bringing a decorative yet lavish touch to wintertime looks. If you’re aiming to layer up in style this season, take these sartorial tips into account for both work and play.
For a relaxed Saturday ensemble, look no further than the Fendi catwalk. Slip into a brilliantly coloured fur stole in shades of navy blue and orange, paired with a navy and white striped top. Meanwhile, a pleated brown midi skirt adds a quaint, rustic look with the addition of bright colours and a luxurious brown fur accent.
To shift the look into the business week, turn to a beige turtleneck sweater paired with a belted brown fur stole (as spotted at Michael Kors). Finish off your ensemble with a plaid knee-length skirt, mahogany-coloured leather loafers and a brown leather handbag with a gold chain strap.
As day turns into night, take your cues from the Lanvin runway. Accessorize a fur stole with with a breathtaking, ethereal long gown in sweet shades of lavender. A floor-length pleated skirt, waist-cinching white leather belt and a lace bodice help to complete the look. As you step out for the evening, pick up a textured black clutch and put on your favourite dangling, dramatic earrings.
