It’s friggidy freezing out, so if you’re not wearing a parka, you’re wearing fur. Those are your choices. While I’m really craving a big shearling coat these days, the array of chic furs hitting the streets of NYC, where temps are ungodly cold, has me thinking about adding a fur chubby to my list. While black feels too ~fancy~ for day to day, browns are hard to get right without looking cheap or blah, and white is just not happening in New York, I’m finding myself suddenly craving an unexpected hue. Having ruled out the technicolor furs and pretty pastels I was considering last year due to my resistance to stray from anything non-neutral (tried, can’t), recently I’ve found an alternative to the classic neutrals that is both practical and chic and downtown cool, not uptown stodgy glam. I’m talking about grey, my new favorite hue, which is now the “it” color for fur it seems. Julianne Moore first turned me onto the option when she hit up the airport in quite possibly the chicest airport outfit of all time, and the more I see people in grey fur, the more I ask myself why I’m not one of them. It just makes sense in a daytime fur, and if it’s gonna continue to be this cold, isn’t it pretty much a necessity?
