Hot Trend Winter 2011 – Fur
If you are in tune with the fashion must haves for winter 2011, you must be aware that this season’s hot trend is fur. With leading fashion magazines across the world splashing ‘fur hot trend’ across their cover, you need to get an outfit in the same so that you stay ahead of the pack.
In fact, this season, nearly 35% of winter collection unveiled by world renowned fashion designers included stunning pieces made of fur or that used fur detailing. All kinds of fur are in this winter. These range from natural fur to artificial fur. You can either invest in a fur outfit or go for a piece that has fur trimmings. Red fur and green fur outfits are also super trendy this season.
If you already have a weakness for fur, this hot winter 2011 trend just gave you yet another reason to splurge on a few more fur pieces to update your wardrobe. Despite all the activism against the use of natural fur for clothing by various animal protection groups, you are the one who needs to make the call. If you like natural fur, stick to it.
However, the artificial fur clothing available in the market look as chic and stunning as pieces made of natural fur. At times, it becomes difficult to tell the difference between the two even if you have a trained eye. Moreover, both natural and artificial fur clothing provide ample warmth against the winter chill.
If you are a little confused as to the best way to wear fur, keep reading. It is highly recommended that you begin with browsing the winter collection unveiled by Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld. This talented designer literally based his entire clothes range on fur. It included fur coats and pants, skirts with fur detailing, fur hats, high boots and fur trimmed gloves. Though he did not shy away from using other material for his garments, but every piece used fur in some or other place. For instance, there was a liberal use of fur on collars, sleeves and even handbags.
Another designer who showed a generous use of fur in his winter 2011 collections is Marc Jacobs. Though he did not concentrate on fur as much as a material for his clothes range, he used it more as embellishment on collars and lower sleeves. These looked quite cool and trendy to say the least.
The Etro collection used various colors of fur to add a dash of color to an otherwise muted palette range. Its bright red tails on the pant suit competed with Anna Sui’s casual dress range that used black, green, red and orange fur detailing for various pieces. Ninna Ricci, Missoni, Isaak Mizrahi, Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry Prorsum also integrated this trend in their winter clothing line.
