It is very cold in Paris now with chance of snow. Snow adorning the boulevards is not the only thing winter has brought to the City of Light: the ever-remarkable Paris street fashions have been trimmed with fur.
Fur, real or faux, lifts the simplest black coat and skinny dark blue jeans to a new level of sophistication and even a little decadence. Those who wore it this way stood out a mile in the street. Simplicity when done well is eye-catching, and fur also has a wonderful way of transforming—and in some cases balancing—a silhouette to perfection.
Big vintage fur coats came out and became an outfit by themselves, giving their owners a carefree aura about them. Hoods were trimmed and sometimes accompanied by matching fur-adorned boots, which looked adorable when creatively combined with pastels.
In Pigalle I saw a quirky pair of maroon gloves with maroon fur around the wrists: color was a great way to break away from the classic look fur sometimes brings.
