Fashion Fur For All Seasons

Real Fur Gilet

Fur in fashion also no longer holds the image of heavy coats you might have seen your grandmother wearing. Today's fur styles are young, fresh, and of-the-moment. Think of Fendi's fur-only fashion show in 2015 - the first in the house's 90-year history - where you could spot models with purple hair wearing a sleek fur coat, or Alexander McQueen's fall 2015 show where dark fur coats brushed arms with light, almost ethereal dresses.

What should you look for in a real fur gilet? The key in looking for anything fur-related is authenticity. Does the fur gilet look and feel like real fur when you run your hand across it - that is, does it have the right plushness and body? When you hold it up to your cheek, does it have that same softness that you'd expect from fox or mink? If yes, then you can buy with confidence.

Despite the reputation, owning a real fur gilet doesn't have to be expensive. You can have the same chic, head-turning look as the hottest celebrity - without the hefty price tag. You can get a real, high-quality gilet for as little as £89. Get ready to have the most enviable Instagram, no filter required!

The most popular gilets are often made of mixes; finding ones made of mink and fox aren't uncommon, although you can also find ones that are just mink or just fox fur. Little details like fur buttons and fringe are of-the-moment additions and make each look unique, so you can stand out and turn heads even more.

A gilet exudes sophistication; it shows you're not afraid to try something new or wear something that's ahead of the curve. It's confident, just like you, and is an instant style update. And you don't have to let it languish in your closet for winter; a gilet can add chicness to your wardrobe any time of year. Try wearing one in late fall for subdued October style, or put one on in spring for when the air turns nippy unexpectedly.

But what's the best part of owning a fur gilet? The incomparable warmth and softness of having real fur next to your skin. Simply put on a tight black or white t-shirt and layer the gilet over it - instant glamour. Or try over a pair of skinny jeans and brown boots. You're your own trend.
