Here is a look at some factors that will help you decide between a long or short fur. fur - length

Consider Typical Weather Conditions

Residents of the Chicago area are all too familiar with the snowy, windy, and freezing conditions that are typical during the winter season. If you find yourself getting very chilly when you step outside on a winter’s day, it may be a good idea to invest in a long fur coat. Since a long fur will cover you from head to toe, it will provide you with an important layer of protection when outdoor weather conditions become harsh.

Evaluate Your Current Wardrobe

Luxury furs can be mixed and matched with many other pieces in your current wardrobe. In order to decide between a long or short fur, you may want to take a look at some of the other pieces that you will plan on wearing with your new fur garment. If you tend to dress in a casual style, a short fur may be the right choice for you.

Think About Versatility

If you are having trouble deciding between a long or short fur, you may want to consider purchasing a fur that can be transformed to suit your mood for the day. A long fur with a zip off feature can be transformed into a short jacket in seconds. Purchasing a zip off piece will allow you to wear your new fur in many different settings and weather conditions.
