Happy middle week to my favorite readers! Today I want to focus on my favorite, classic combo: tweed and luxurious fur. There is something magical about this pairing, as though the intellectual, aristocratic- leaning tweed can be bent to luxurious form, by the silky, brazen quality of natural fur.
The above collage features a fur trimmed, tweed suit from Prodiga.com. I as so excited to have found this UK venue. It really is a well curated site that offers tasteful clothing, that is contemporary and rich, and not stuffy. I love the modern skater skirt rendered in tweed and trimmed in luxurious fur at the sleeves. Perfection. Next is a real world compilation of tweed and luxurious fur that covers a broad range of prices. The pictures above: The first pic is of me from a prior post wearing a mink trimmed tweed coat by Moschino over a Magaschoni silk dress. The middle top insert is of the tweed skater suit trimmed in fur from Prodiga.com. Next is an edgy and fun rendition from modaoperandi.com. Middle insert and bottom left are well priced tweed dresses from Lastcall.com by Neiman Marcus. Tope them with a fur shrug or jacket, add some red soled pumps, and you are good to go! The green fur cape on the right bottom is from Neiman Marcus priced at $1395. The bottom middle photo is an ebay find in rabbit at $45.99. The tweed shoes can add a touch of this trend and comfy walking. They are Dr. Martens Beckett Boots in blue Harris tweed and can be found on ebay.com. for $345.00.
Below is a pic of the skater suit ( again, and because i LOVE it!) and a cape from ebay for $129.00. The cape can go over leather skinnies, a tweed skirt, man tailored trousers, or denim tucked into boots. So versatile and luxurious, and priced right!
For those opposed to wearing fur there are a multitude of faux fur options in all price ranges. Now that fall weather is finally here, welcome the season with autumnal and bright hued tweeds and a dash of fur! Have a great few days.!
