‘Tis the season to stay warm! There’s no better or more fashionable way to do so than to wrap yourself up in furry coats.
Whether short or long, red, white, or animal print, fur coats are hitting the streets again…in a flurry.
Karl Lagerfeld’s burgundy faux fur jacket shines brightly like a diamond under the sun. This furry little thing is collarless which gives you an opportunity to play around with different scarves and accessories without overdoing it. Not only does it stand out in the sun, but the color truly looks fantastic in the evening. Its quasi-iridescent nature creates a mysterious aura when wearing it at night. Pair with sexy leather pants and burgundy drop earrings. Watch out for droolers when wearing this one out!
