With all the crazy winter weather hitting the country lately, it’s been the perfect opportunity for fashionistas all across the nation to break out in their best furs. But with the winter weather reaching many parts of the country, we wonder when is the right time to wear fur if you live in Arizona?
Since it’s rarer for any polar vortex to blow through our area, those with a collection of mink, sable, or fox may have a more difficult time wearing them.
While fur is synonymous with cold, blustering winds, and unforgiving snows, current fashion trends are allowing for more wiggle room on when it is appropriate to wear fur.
Full Length Styles
Arizona weather is typically warm and dry, but there are cooler nights where you want to fight the brisk air while looking fabulous. It’s totally acceptable to wear a full length fur coat, especially for special nights out at the symphony or at a gala. Full length coats are also appropriate for a cold snap or anytime the temperature in the evening hits 30s and 40s. When you wear your full length fur, be sure to take it off and store it properly when you sit down so you don’t risk pulling the fur hairs.
Furs are an easy choice when it comes to chilly evenings. But how do you add fur to your everyday wardrobe?
Fur in All Seasons
More designers are including different styles to accommodate wearing fur for everyday occasions. Crop length, mid-waist, or car coat lengths are perfect to throw on when the air is brisk.
Spring time is a great time to add fur, since you are already transitioning your wardrobe from winter to warmer weather. Instead of a full length coat, opt for a shorter fur jacket with less fur density. (Don’t forget to keep your full length coat professionally stored during the warmer months.)
Light fur vests and jackets should be your best friend in this season. These layers can be easily added to both causal and dressy outfits. A fur vest can be worn with a simple long-sleeve thermal or blouse, depending on the temperature, and jeans with flats.
A fur jacket can add a new dimension of sophistication to your office wardrobe or a special date night. Fur is perfect for fun nights on the town with your friends. Watch the heads turn.
If you want your fur to be even more versatile, wear it to a sports event or during your vacation in the winter months. A sports event like a football or a hockey game is a stylish way to stay protected from the elements. When wearing fur to a sporting event, go easy on the accessories and stick with a causal pair of jeans or slacks.
For those who travel, wearing fur protects you from the unpredictable cold spells while looking put together.
Fun Fur Accessories
There are times when it’s just too hot to wear a full fur item, but that doesn’t mean fur can’t be a part of your wardrobe. Fur trimmed items and fur flourishes are hot on the runways now.
Fur lined shoes are an unexpected way to show your fur love. From pumps, to sandals, to flats, fur shoes bring a new kind of style to footwear. Fur handbags are being worn on the arms of supermodels and celebrities.
If you want to tap into this glamorous trend, design houses like Fendi have an entire line of fur inspired handbags and accessories in whimsical colors. These are a must have if you if you like bold fabrics in your collection.
Even if you’re in Arizona or another warm weather state, never miss an opportunity to wear fur. Experiment and wear your fur for all occasions.
