Jewel Tones on Trend in Fur Fashion
Posted on by Flemington Furs

Is anyone else in a black rut? Black pants, black sweaters, black jackets… its what many of us resort to as the months turn colder. But what’s wrong with a little color? We love jewel tones – deep & complex purple, shades of blue/teal, and ruby red are the perfect way to take a break from black! And jewel tones become even more vibrant when fur is involved.

The Fur Insider reported on the fashion trends this fall and found the bold blue hue dominated the runways. They saw this color being used monochromatically and within fur prints.

But for many, moving away from neutrals is easier said than done. We love neutrals; they go with everything and make matching easy. But no one in the fashion industry ever got anywhere by taking the easy route. In fact, the fashion gods are predicting jewel tones to be in high demand for fall/winter fashion 14/15.

So if you’re ready and willing, keep an eye out for these jewel tones for the remainder of this winter and you will have a coat that everyone will be lusting after in years to come. Your wardrobe will thank you.

The Most Loved Fur Types
Posted on by Flemington Furs

If you’re buying your first fur, it can be difficult deciding on a fur type, let alone a style and color! The possibilities are endless in the world of fur fashion, so one of the first things to consider is the fur type. Some furs are more popular than others, which end up affecting the different styles available and of course the price. Why are some more widely admired than others? The fur type’s versatility and the feel of the fur are some reasons. For example, a mink coat is the coat to many women, and it has to do a lot with its supple nature.

If you’re the kind of woman who likes having something different but just as luxurious, look to different fur types like Persian Lamb, which has a naturally beautiful curl, or Chinchilla which is incomparable in softness.

And if you’re asking our followers on Facebook what their all-time favorite fur type was, you won’t get one straight answer! But the numbers don’t lie; mink is still getting the most attention from fur lovers. And we were happy to see that there are always those who can’t choose a favorite and love every single kind! There’s no need to be loyal to one fur type. If this is your second or even third fur, go for variety; each coat will come in handy at different times in your life.

If you’re still not sure which is the right choice for you, we recommending reading this detail on all the types of fur available on the market from the Fur Information Council of America.

Winter 2014 Trends That Work With Fur
Posted on by Flemington Furs

Okay, we admit, you can’t wear fur with EVERYTHING. Some looks just don’t go! But as we’ve addressed before, fur is becoming more and more versatile; you can actually wear it with casual outfits. So don’t just leave it for your evening dresses and black-tie affairs, here are the top five wearable trends that we think will pair perfectly with fur this fall and winter!


Tweed

Flexible, swanky, sophisticated tweed is a great contrast to the soft and supple look of fur. Not to mention the colors and patterns often associated with tweed compliment the neutral shades of our favorite fur coats.

Hourglass Silhouette

Soft shoulders, nipped waists, rounded hips and lowered necklines in flowing fabrics, this was one of our favorite looks from the runway. There’s nothing more glamorous than a feminine outfit under an oversized fur coat – always go with the element of surprise! It’s what good style is all about.

Leather

At Flemington Furs we always say, fur and leather are better together! We don’t really consider leather a trend (it’s really a wardrobe must-have) but now that leather separates are more mainstream, you can easily pair a leather skirt and fur cropped jacket this fall. A luxurious look indeed!

The Slip Dress

A slip dress with thin spaghetti straps, luxe lace in the finest silk and soft muted colors is a luxurious way to counterbalance the natural qualities of fur. Delicate and sensual, it’s an easy, romantic solution for evening without feeling overdressed. And a fur coat is the perfect thing to wear over it so you don’t feel overexposed!

Gaucho Pant Length & Midi Skirts

Dressier and a little more sophisticated than your average pants or skirt, both these bottoms cut off at the calf to show just the right amount of skin for this time of year. With a cropped fur coat on top, you have the perfect outfit balance – bye-bye bulk!

No matter which of this year’s trends you decide to embrace, remember one thing: when you’re running around to and from work, errands and glamorous parties this winter, the first thing people are going to notice about your outfit is your coat. So make it a point to invest in an eye-catching outerwear!
