Fur... fur... and more fur. Nothing spices up a fall outfit like fur. Try adding a fur trim to an old vest. The combination is creative and allows you to use a piece of clothing that you would otherwise leave in your closet. However, as always, there was an inspiration to this article.
While mingling at a charity event I spotted some gal's hot Giuseppe Zanotti shoes. The designer wrapped a fur trim around the ankle. I know the brand because I couldn't resist asking her. I couldn't find the shoes anywhere but, according to the beauty wearing them, they were a couple of seasons old. Although, I did find a sexy pair of mink Giuseppe Zanotti fur boots that will blow your socks off! Giuseppe Zanotti made these Russian-inspired mink boots for a goddess and they will rock any look for the fall and winter. The black boots have a little color detail along the top of the boot, and colored Swarovski crystals wrap around the boot giving it a touch of color and bling.

Now for a more casual, simple look, I like this laid-back Armani Exchange 100% cotton jacket with fur trim on the collar. The 3/4 sleeve wrap only has a one button closure and has a real chill vibe to it. The wrap's light color and brownish/tan trim fur trim play well off each other. This is as casual as fur gets without being a slipper. It is nice to have more casual options when it comes to fur clothing.

Getting back to fancy, glitz and glam, I totally dig this tweed coat with faux fur trim. This is the jacket ladies. This super duper long, black jacket will turn heads. I love the mixing up of the different materials because it really livens up the all black jacket. The idea of tweed and faux fur is a fab idea and this jacket proves it! I also like how the jacket differentiates itself from most fur jackets because it doesn't have a collar and the two large flap pockets give it a sophisticated finish.

Since I am on a black binge with most of my product highlights, I might as well finish black. I don't know why but I like Stuart Weitzman's soft suede faux fur-trimmed black purse. Once again the different textures transition well with one another making this is a winner to carry on your shoulder. Love the tassel, love the size, and love the fact that it's water resistant.
