No need to panic, the colder weather can be an ally…an ally to accessorize for! Of course, we’re talking about the ever-so-chic FUR HAT! A fur hat is not just an accessory, it is a statement piece in the making–a great sartorial ally.
These past few seasons we have grown accustomed to seeing young beauties in fox trapper hats(the sky is the limit when it comes to sizes, colors and proportions). Chic and sporty and so very warm, these fashionable fur hats work well for both men and women.

But, there is another look we’re starting to see around hot spots and chic parties. It’s the pillbox hat version, that “From Russia with Love” hat type that is as historical and romantic as it is chic and classic. Jacqueline Kennedy, thanks to Halston, has done more for the beatification of the shape as a fashion icon. This hat is definitely much dressier and somewhat more mature in look. Then again, it only takes a few pretty young things to be chronicled in the magazines to change public opinion.

There’s hardly any Red Carpet trend passing unnoticed on the stores front, so when it comes to official events in Hollywood, it never hurts to pay attention every now and then. We recently talked about the Elle Women in Hollywood 19th celebration Gala, and more specifically about Emma Stone who attended the said Red carpet event all dressed in hot pink with sheer long sleeves.
Focusing on ‘sheer’: one of the main Red Carpet dresses trends is ‘see – through’ dresses. That’s applicable either for the entire dress / outfit, either on separates (skirts, sleeves, blouses, tops). If you take a look below at the selected sheer looks from the said celebration, you too will agree that see – through is the new black!

The 60′s will always be known as the rebellious period in which people found their “voice” globally and weren’t afraid to use it to express their uniqueness, displeasure, or general need to go against the status quo. So went the fashion trends as women burned their bras in protest of oppressive attitudes towards women, and hiked up their hemlines to celebrate their new found freedom. For the 70′s think John Travolta in bell bottom trousers, midriff tops, platform heels and the emergence of the bohemian hippie look. The 80′s were spiky hair, neon, extreme shoulder pads and legwarmers……nothing “smooth from five feet” as stylists often advise.

And then there was the 80s, which meant leg warmers, neon and punk for many in the fashion category
Within this climate these beautiful faces reached the apex of their celebrity, shining out from magazines, television or film screens, often in fur looks, proving that fur is timeless and always in fashion.
One of the enduring faces of Motown records, Ms. Diana Ross was a bonafide doe eyed diva long before it became an art-form. A singer, an actress, mother of 5, and a legend all describe this beautiful lady who has entertained audiences worldwide for over 5 decades. Recognized by the Guinness Book of Records in 1993 for being “The Most Successful Female Artist of All Time” this woman is nothing short of supreme! Also enjoying a brief movie career, Ross starred in Lady Sings the Blues, Mahogany, The Wiz, Out of Darkness, and Double Platinum. Known for her sultry vocals, Ross was looked at across the board as being a fashion trendsetter of her time, which was especially difficult due to the racial inequities that existed for African Americans at the time.

Sultry, curvy and seductive, this home grown symbol of exotic beauty will always be famous for her pin-up picture from 1966′s “One Million Years B.C.” Savagely beautiful and untamed this brown-haired beauty has been at the top of the most beautiful people lists around the world. If sex appeal was a currency, then Raquel was the richest woman on earth in the 60′s and 70′s….and still remains at the top of the heap!

By far the most popular of all of Charlie’s Angels, Farrah Fawcett with perfectly feathered locks and Colgate smile was America’s darling during the late 70′s and early 80′s. Not only did her trademark hairstyle inspire women of all ethnicities globally, but the show’s quirky and sexually infused use of wardrobing to tell the story of these beautiful undercover agents set many fashion trends as well. In an iconic poster Farrah donned a simple yet reveling red bathing suit that made her the stuff that dreams are made off for millions and millions of men/boys everywhere (this FurInsider had one in his college dorm room!). A wide collar on a sexy fitted button down shirt with equally fitted blazer or vest was the uniform of the fashionable business woman thanks to Farrah. One of her most memorable acting gigs, the TV movie “The Burning Bed” in which she played an abused wife who eventually sets her husband on fire, was far less glamorous and sexy, yet still showed that this lady was more than just a pretty face…she could act! But, it was her final act of sharing her valiant battle with cancer publicly that will be her greatest legacy. Sadly she passed away in June of 2009 but in our mind’s eye she remains the fresh-faced all-American girl of our dreams.
Her beauty and style is what every woman aspired to have

The Spring-Summer 2013 collections may have just ended, crowning trouser ensembles and ultra-feminine dresses as that season’s principal sartorial heroes. But as much as novelty rules fashion, historical antecedence always guides it in some form or another season after season.

Popular culture is fashion’s most potent aphrodisiac and ringleader, and in recent years AMC’s Mad Men has done much to revamp post-modern style from décor to wardrobe. This mid-century look, exemplified by Knoll furniture and short dresses is, itself, influencing the greater fashion picture.

The British newspaper, the Daily Mail, recently did a feature on the many looks of secretaries overtime and some of their iconic ‘features’; their misogynist objectification wasn’t lost on anyone, but what really typified the post-modern transitional style was the movement in the length of their garments.
With conical bra and cinched in waist, this Sixties secretary shows just how much women’s silhouettes – and fashions – have changed over the decades

Yes, shorter hems not only embraced the youth culture of the 1960′s, they reinvented how women wear types of garments altogether. And today, that same ideal is back at the forefront….even in fur silhouettes. Shorter furs are becoming much more prevalent in recent seasons than they have been ever before.

As spring-summer 2013 collections testified, casual dressing is becoming a little more formal and formal dressing is becoming more democratic. Sportswear is going back to its roots, so to speak, and re-launching easy-to-wear pieces that are like fashion “master keys” that can work with almost everything.

Short furs share that same versatility. They go with almost everything from eveningwear to jeans and t-shirts classics, regardless of age and social preconceptions. This style is also a great sartorial ally when it comes to remodeling an older fur.
