Should You Go Long or Short When Picking Your Perfect Fur Coat?

Choosing Your Perfect Fur CoatWhen you buy luxury furs in Chicago, you should choose fur coats, fur capes, and fur accessories that are classic and timeless, so you don’t have to worry about them going out of style. Fur coats are available in different lengths, and you’ll have to decide if you want a long fur coat or a short fur coat. Here is a guide that may help you decide which fur coat length is perfect for you.

Think About the Weather in Your City

Long fur coats are ideal for cities that regularly experience rain, wind, sleet, snow, and freezing temperatures. They are more effective at keeping your whole body warm and sheltering you from wind and rain. If you live in a city with a milder climate, you may do best with a shorter fur garment. You can still wear it in the evenings when the temperature drops, but you won’t feel overheated or overburdened in less extreme temperatures.

Decide Whether Elegance or Casualness is More Important

Many people believe that long fur coats are elegant, sophisticated, and dramatic. They are classic and timeless, and won’t ever go out of fashion. They are also a more flexible choice, as you have the option of getting your long fur coat shortened by a fur coat alterations company that specializes in fur coat restyling. Shorter fur garments such as fur boleros, fur jackets, and fur strollers are more casual and are appropriate for those who consider themselves trendy and fashionable. Many younger people would rather wear a shorter fur garment because they typically wear shorter skirts and dresses. Shorter fur garments, especially fur capes and fur stoels can be worn with long dresses or skirts, particularly formal dresses. And they can go equally well with casual jeans.

Consider Your Height

You should always shop for fur coats in person so that you can see how the length of the fur coat works with your overall proportions. Shorter women sometimes look overwhelmed by long fur coats, and taller women may find short fur coats to appear too small for their frame. Work with a fur sales person to find the perfect length for your height.
