Styling a Vintage Fur Coat
Happy Monday! The cold has definitely come to North Carolina in a big way. The snowstorm we had over the weekend was magical and now we’re left with lots of snow and it’s cold! I’ve been rotating through my coat collection (mostly leopard) and I’m pulling out the coziest ones right now. The coat I’m wearing in these pictures was one my mother wore while I was growing up and she gave it to me. I really love to incorporate vintage items into my wardrobe and this one has a special place in my heart! Yes, it is real fur…and it is very warm. I actually wore it out while it was lightly snowing and at least the top half of me stayed warm.
I know the way I’ve styled this coat is far from classic, but I wanted to show that you can wear vintage pieces any way you wish. I decided to wear a favorite pair of jeans, a cream equipment blouse, my funky pearl necklace (a nod to the way my mom would have worn it), and a pair of leopard Tory Burch booties that I’ve had for years. I think the style of this coat makes it perfect for jeans.
I found the pearl necklace I’m wearing about 10 years ago in a small boutique. It’s made from several old vintage pearl necklaces with added hardware to make it a little funky. I’ve love it because it’s different and I wear it so much! It’s great to search out unique pieces that add your personality to an outfit. Scroll through the boutique below…I’ve found some great faux fur coats and a similar necklace as well as very similar booties!
I’m linking several similar jackets below! No matter how you style it, a chic jacket makes everything cozier.
I’m including this picture of another long vintage faux fur coat that I purchased in Savannah Georgia from a great shop called House of Strut. If you’re ever in Savannah you should definitely check it out, but in he meantime, they have an incredible website that you can shop from if you’re ever looking for the perfect unique piece to complete an outfit!
