The Year of Fur

This year in street style, furry sandals could be seen even in the summer. As the weather got cool starting around the end of September, fur items, like clutches, came to increase. Fur items in fall and winter outfits are standard, but being put boldly on various items, it might be said to be this year’s “year-round” item.


The Trigger of the Boom

The instigator of the fur boom is the “fur-lined babouche” presented in Gucci’s 2016 A/W Collection. Originally, the “babouche” with its design that appears as if the heel were stepped on, is traditionally Moroccan leather footwear. From recent city fashion, it is an item that can give a slipped off feeling. The “babouche” itself is a trend of this season, but the novel design of Gucci fur-lined shoes is gathering attention nonstop from fashionistas.


How to Wear This Year’s Style

This year various items like clutch bags, sandals, and leather shoes are developing and indicating a presence. This year, for furs a little on the long side to strongly claim mainstream, it is better to use it on shoes and bag accessories. When it is used on a vest, do your best to keep other items simple; it is a point not to become too flashy. Popular colors are black, beige, and grey, which are easy to match.


Although it can be a difficult item, if you are careful about the size and volume of the fur, it can match any style without difficulty. Fur items are very actively being used as accents for fall and winter fashion, which has a tendency to become plain.
