There’s one particular trend emerging at New York Fashion Week that we’re overly excited about: fur sleeves. We’ve been there, done that with fur coats, fur scarves, even fur gloves- but fur sleeves? The concept feels fresh & familiar all at once. So many runways showcased wool jackets & sweaters with texture-blocking in the form of fur!
DKNY showed a wearable version perfect for NYC winter weather. A water-resistant black parka got a luxe update from a fur-trimmed hood and fur sleeves from the elbow down. Worn over a classic black suit, the look was the perfect evolution of classic New York standbys.
Not only did Jason Wu texture-block, he colorblocked as well! Wu’s fur-sleeved coat featured shiny blue material (so big for Fall) contrasted with black fur panels at the arms. This coat would be right at home in a high-end ski resort, right?
We LOVED the exaggerated fur sleeves at Milly! The Milly show featured a black-and-white zip up jacket with a fur skirt AND fur sleeves. The long fur extended past the fingertips, giving off a wild-woman vibe. This might be our favorite of the bunch.
Sally LaPointe’s fur-sleeved turtleneck sweater felt like so on-trend; a natural progression of the oversize-turtleneck-sweater trend that’s been so big lately. In fact, we’re pretty sure the Man Repeller Leandra Medine scooped up this sweater right off the runway- she was spotted in something eerily similar the next day!
What do you think of the fur sleeves trend? Yay or nay?
