How to wear a chinchilla coat?
Now, when it comes to chinchilla, one of the most exquisite furs available on the market, one question inevitably arises: how to wear it in a way that is effortless and yet compelling? We are convinced that chinchilla designs can be smoothly integrated into any style and worn on any occasion. While a full-length coat layers captivatingly over special-occasion ensembles, it also wears beautifully over a casual jean-and-sneaker combo. In order to successfully show off your full-length chinchilla coat we recommend that you use your accessories. Think a satin clutch and high heels on a night out or a slouchy tote with oversized sunglasses on a day off.
Similarly, you can play with one of our richly coloured chinchilla jackets or vests. Use it as an attention-riveting pop of colour on a night out throwing it over a column-silhouette evening dress. Then, combine your cropped jacket with a pair of flared jeans and a cowboy boot next day for effortless elegance.
To answer that might bother a lot of fur lovers: yes, it is absolutely acceptable to show off your chinchilla vest or coat with a pair of sneakers. Over the past decade casual footwear has become embedded in luxury fashion – do not hesitate to slip into your favourite flat-soled pair for a dose of casual chic.
Similar rules apply to menswear: chinchilla coats, vests and parkas pair equally well with casual and elevated designs alike, as long as you select the right accessories to highlight your look. They are easier to combine than lynx fur coats for example.
