Talk about your warm fuzzies! So much fun! Fur-lined coats are my new favorite winter treat. So many of them are like wearing blankets, I mean how can you resist cuddling up in one?  Scrap the boyfriend and invest in the right jacket instead.

Over-sized and Comfy Warm

Now that over-sized fashion is tromping around, you can maximize your snuggle potential! Big jean jackets or leather jackets protect you on the outside, while the fuzzy stuff warms you on the inside. When I say fur-lined coats, you know I am including sherpa and shearling as well.

Music Alert! You know what else makes me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside? James Zabiela. Here’s one of my favorite tracks, but I suggest you catch him live if you have the chance.

Fur-lined Coats Don’t Have to be Brown

Unlike our sweet grandmothers, we’ve got animal-friendly options in a myriad of colors. How much more inviting is a patent-leather jacket when it’s got baby blue shearling pouring out of it? OMG, may I please have some more?

Please Go Vintage

Live in warmer clients like us poor Southern California kids? The best option for a sherpa-lined jacket is to find vintage styles from the 70’s. Denim and corduroy are the optimal exterior fabrics in reds, tans, and browns. So much for all of my color enthusiasm! I still love these jackets, so had to include them. Go for crazy hair or a graphic tee instead ;p

Suede is Still on Our Radar

For colder climates, a la the east coast, try longer lengths and the thickest lining you can find. You can keep your outfit simple (AKA all black) and still wow and amaze with your fur-lined coat from heaven. If you’re traveling, a longer coat can of course double as a blanket (or possibly a make-shift bedspread).

Sandy Liang is Pretty Much My Favorite

Pick a piece-y item if you want a coat that would work great for nightlife and can transition you into Spring. Sandy Liang has the majority of my favorite fur-lined coats. Find a bomber jacket with fur sleeves or a long coat dressed with long ribbons and crimped fur. They’re pricey, but hey, you’re worth it so I will still promote.

You Can Still Do Fur in Wet Climate

As the season progresses, my rainy-day friends can still benefit from fur fashion. There are coats cropping up everywhere that are water-proof and fur-lined too. Stay dry on the outside and super chic on the inside! After all, we’ve all been taught it’s what’s inside that counts.
