Trendspotting: Fur Stoles
I’ve always loved the glamour of fur stoles. Originally popularized by blonde bombshell movie stars like Mae West, Grace Kelly, and Marilyn Monroe, these luxurious beauties are making a modernized comeback via Chictopia’s Style Gallery.
Style Icon, Annebeth, goes for an unexpected “high-low” look. She styles her shaggy brown fur stole with a perky denim jacket and brown basics. She balances out the down-to-earth vibe of the denim jacket and simultaneously compliments the glamour of the fur wrap with a pair of sexy black suede boots.
chichichicjb sports a classically-vintage ensemble. The 40’s-50’s flavor of her oversized beige fur stole is continued via a prim fall-ready pencil skirt, sheer black stockings, and a sleekly-curled side swept ponytail. She adds a bit of modern flair with a lust-worthy belted leather jacket and lace-up booties.

Style Icon, llymlrs, epitomizes the grunge-chic bohemian look. Her basic grey blouse and black tights are the ideal background pieces to show off her textured brown fur stole and rebel-rocker leather shorts. She accessorizes this outfit with a simple red rosary necklace and a stack of mismatched bracelets.
AlinaS goes for an edgy urban look. She pairs her soft grey-brown fur stole with a fitted motorcycle jacket, skinny grey jeans, and phenomenal patent-leather stiletto boots. She’s the perfect example of how a traditional vintage element can be worked into a completely modernized outfit.
NaomiDee works the peasant-chic trend. Her scruffy black fur stole adds a touch of intrigue to her knit beige sweater and grey tee shirt dress. She makes this outfit folksy-perfection with a pair of moccasins and a vintage leather buckle bag.
Despite any previous conceptions about this classic accessory, these five Chictopians have shown us that fur stoles are anything but prim and glitzy. Both warm and stylish, fur stoles are practically perfect in every way.
