How to wear a fur, REDVAlentino Fur

Big furs are everywhere this season in a variety of colors and textures from faux to real. You may already have a fur vest, coat or jacket in your closet or you may want to invest in one this season. Now is a good time to find one because the stores are well stocked with options. You can wear a big fur casually with jeans and a sweater for day, or dress it up and simply wear all black and add a little bling for evening.

So how do you avoid looking like Bigfoot when wearing a big fur? The answer is simple: “Cinch it with a belt.” Here are examples of how a 1/2″ to 1″ wide belt can keep your shape from becoming overwhelming, or even unflattering. On the other hand, you may like to wear your big fur coat or vest without a belt for a more daring look.
