The times of keeping fur in hibernation all year long are no longer. Fur is currently one of the biggest fashion statements on the runway and on the streets. Today’s top celebrities, models, and fashion influencers can be found flaunting their best furs 365 days a year. You guessed it! Fur is no longer just for winter anymore. Fur is currently in the early stages of making a huge fashion comeback. So why not show off your fur style all year long?
The best way to begin is to dive in to our season-by-season guide as we show you how the hottest fashion icons are modeling their furs through spring, summer, fall, and winter.
Spring – “Life is a party. Dress like it.”
Spring is the season of new life, growth, and beginnings. The weather is getting warmer, flowers are blooming, and our spirits are lifting. With spring comes more time being spent out and about. From picnics and lunch dates to parties and walks in the park. The change from winter to spring is the most dramatic seasonal change of them all. Your wardrobe change should be just the same. So bring on the drama. And of course…the fur!
Your spring furs should all have one thing in common…pretty floral and pastel colors! Fashion blogger and photographer Micah Gianneli is a pro at mixing bright spring colors with luxe furs to match. Micah mixes and matches a lavish sky blue fur coat with a matching turtleneck dress. She also knows how to dress it down a bit by wearing the coat with a casual white tank and shorts. The blues are not the only color Micah has caught a case of. She also styles vibrant yellow and playful pink furs to match just about any outfit combo imaginable. Follow Micah Gianneli on Instagram for endless fur-spiration that will put a little spring in your step.
Micah’s fabulous fur style may be perfect and endless, but she’s not the only fashion guru killing the spring fur game. Model and fashion expert Olivia Palermo is widely seen and photographed highlighting her large fur collection all over the world. Olivia is among the most creative when it comes to putting various icon pieces together. Olivia wowed us in London with her spring inspired street style, complete with a light fur jacket. Her pairings of a pastel paisley print pant with a vibrant yellow clutch and a nude fur jacket are a perfect fit for the chillier days of the spring season. Another stand out Olivia piece is her lovely lavender fur jacket! Paired with an all black, flare cut editor pant and cat eye sunglasses, she was sure to bring her street chic style to fashion week.

Summer – “Always dress like it’s the best day of your life.”
Ah summer. Hair gets lighter, skin gets darker, water gets warmer… life gets better right? For many of us summer is the best time of the year. The season offers more freedom, more fun, and a prolonged state of happiness. In the summer, less is more, especially when it comes to clothing. This is what makes summertime perfect for showing off those small but powerful fur statement pieces and accessories.
Just like in the spring, incorporating fur into your summer outfits has a lot to do with color as well. However it’s time to leave the pretty dainty pastels behind and bring on the heat. In the summertime, make your fur additions pop by bringing out the bold colors of the summer sunsets.
A foolproof way to bring out the bold without the bulk is to accessorize! Fur bags and pom pom accessories are the best go-to for flashing your summer fur. Bright fur bags like this pom pom cross body bag by Charlotte Simone can be paired with any summer outfit. CharlotteSimone.com is the ultimate site to find inspiration and shop for bold summer fur pieces that standout. Currently, the biggest warm weather fur fashion trend is the fur slide sandal. Today’s hottest celebs are caught strutting in fur slides on cameras all over the world. Gigi Hadid styles her black fur Gucci slides with blue denim for fashion week. Sophia Richie was spotted at lunch in Hollywood rocking a pair of fluffy purple Brother Vellies slides. And Khloe Kardashian was seen in Santa Monica mixing light blue Confetti Fox slides with a Kanye camouflage jacket and a shearling fur tote bag. And she rocked it of course.
Are you a consistent beach goer in the summer? The beach is the number one place to show off your fur style. From fur beach towels to pom pom bikinis and every beach accessory in between, any fur statement is sure to make the temperature rise. Natasha Poly shows off her summer beach style in black and white. She pairs a sexy black one piece with a crisp white fur beach towel to appear bold, unique, and simple. If you enjoy evening walks on the beach or traveling to beaches with cooler temperatures, a furry cover-up may be a necessity.

Fall – “People will stare. Make it worth their while.”
Following the heat of the summer autumn always rolls in with the wind and the gold. Fall is the time of year where life bursts with its last colorful allure before the chill of the winter arrives, and your fashion sense should do the same. It is as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale. This is the perfect opportunity to burst out your fall fur coats to create a grand finale that is completely your own.
Fall brings us crisp air, bulky fluffy sweaters, and daily coffee runs. It is the time to bring forth your creative side with your furs. Now that it is “fur season” or, in other words, a socially acceptable time to wear fur, you better be sure that your fall fur style stands out above the rest. And there are no other three little words that say “stand out in fur” better than Robyn Rihanna Fenty. This isn’t Rihanna’s first rodeo when it comes to fur styling. The singer/celebrity is definitely a fur fashion pro. Let’s be real though, what is she not good at? Rihanna styles long fur coats with casual fall pieces and she absolutely knows how to accessorize. Now you know how to make those crisp fall morning coffee runs in style. It’s time to get excited for that morning commute.
The celebrities are not the only ones out there who have inherited the style gene. The fashion blogger community is growing every day, and they are doing it right. Lifestyle blogger and fashionista Tessa Barton put together a perfect fall outfit for a New York City photo shoot. What did she wear? A multi colored faux fur coat, yellow tinted aviators, and bell bottom jeans. So glam and groovy! According to another blogger, travel and style journalist Polienne, nothing says fall fashion quite like a leopard fur coat and a graphic band tee. And of course Nicole Richie has the style down too in her floor length leopard fur and The Who band tee. Always mix casual with glam – especially when you want to stand out in the crowd.
Pumpkin spice should never be the only spice in your life during the fall season. Spice up your wardrobe with fashion tips and tricks from the style pros. Fall is the perfect time to bring out your fur pieces and your personal creativity. Learn how to incorporate furs to create outfits that stand out all season long.
Winter – “When life gets gray and dull, you might as well have a little fun when you dress.”
Baby, it’s cold outside. Upon the arrival of winter, fashion changes from pumpkin spice to hot coco. On long and cold days and nights we tend to long for the feeling of sitting cozily in front of a fireplace and enjoying its warmth. This feeling commonly reflects the way we dress in the winter. Clothing styles start to bring forth a calming sense of warmth, serenity, and joy with a focus on pure and natural beauty. Winter fashion is like snow. It beautifies everything it touches.
As we long for warmth, it is easy in the winter time to focus too much on comfort and less on style when it comes to outfitting. Don’t make the mistake of letting your gorgeous fur coat suffocate you. Accessorizing in the winter is important in order to break up the look and add multiple focus points. Take notes yet again from model Olivia Palermo as she pairs white jeans with a black turtleneck under a white knit sweater and pulls everything together with a gorgeous print fur coat. She wears her coat off the shoulder and pulls her hair back into a loose low pony to add personal touches to her style. How to Chic blog spot shows us how Rihanna adds an edgy vibe to her long winter furs. She showcases her gray sweats and New Balance sneakers underneath her gorgeous floor length winter fur. Rhianna is skilled at bringing out her personal beauty in her style and she knows how to mix edge with sophistication.
Winter is the longest season of the year. It is common to become anxious for warmer temperatures soon after the holidays. Don’t let the winter blahs get you or your style down because it is still prime time to flaunt your fur. Fashion blogger and stylist, Heather Anderson showcases the perfect outfit for those end of the winter season days. Heather’s very February outfit consists of blue skinny jeans and a tight fitted v neck under a fluffy pink faux fur coat. She accessorizes the look with gray pumps, a neutral toned handbag, mirrored aviators, a wool fedora, and the perfect red lip.
Winter is long, beautiful, and calming. But it can be difficult, especially in the later days of the season. Bringing your style out in the winter months is a great way to keep your spirits up. Find inspiring ways to incorporate some of your favorite pieces with your winter fur look and you’ll be set for the season.
Creating your style with fur fashion pieces poses limitless options. Above all it’s important to know that the seasons give you a guide on what to wear, but you are never limited to only those options. If you like something, wear it. Any time you want, 365 days a year. Because it’s not the pieces you choose, but how you wear them that counts. When styling your wardrobe it is important to understand that fashion and style coincide, but they are not the same. Fashion is what others declare is in, which is anything that can be bought. Style is what you declare is in and it is what you decide to do with what you have. Style is a beautiful way to say who you are without having to speak. Show the world your style and always dress like it’s the best day of your life.
