Fur collar and cuffs

miss-selfridge-faux-fur-cuff-and-collar-coat I saw a woman yesterday wearing a marvellous fitted, belted coat, trimmed with fur at the collar and the cuffs and I immediately fancied one! I have  looked for images all over the web and I have come up with very little… Some have coats with a fur collar but no cuffs, others even have cuffs by themselves, only one with both!! This will not stop me from having what I want though, it can always be made. In fact, I have an old coat I don’t wear anymore which would be just perfect with the addition of “furry bits”! I was thinking I might just have the cuffs sewn on, wouldn’t it look chic?! And, when I want the collar as well, I will just use one of those gorgeous ones you can just tie around your neck (which I already own).

Now, I think it is probably best to keep to a similar colour for the coat and the fur in order for it to look sophisticated and be easier to match, e.g. black with black/grey fur, camel with browns and so on, although it is not always the case…


Difficult to say which one I would have, but I especially like the navy with navy collar one, the “fun” checked coat and would also love to have the huge collar the woman with the hat has and the denim jacket… almost all, as I said!
