Baby it's Cold Outside

It's time to take a cue from Greta Garbo and wrap yourself in luxurious furs and cozy sweaters. But rather than walk around in a snuggy-like fur, try the sophisticated style of Clara Bow:

Modern day interpretations of the classic furs include this yummy cotton candy design from Oscar de la Renta's Pre-Fall 2010 collection.


A minty fresh style from Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2010.
Classic and lovely looks from Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2010 use fur as an accent on the coat and layers with soft sweaters.

Classic femininity is in the details of this Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2010 look. A belted waist to emphasize the figure, shimmering skirt, textured tights that elongate the legs with the black heels and a delicate bun. So lovely...

Another belted look, but this time with a bigger punch in firey red. Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2010.

Sweater dressing is perfected with these various designs from Chanel Pre-Fall 2010.
Boho, retro, disco...

Warm layers that are feminine without being so bulky that they overpower the figure. Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2010.

The classic style of Greta Garbo.

Sweaters definitely don't have to be boring. Pringle of Scotland showcases sweaters that are easily compared to art. Their 3D quality makes them sculptural in design, with the middle sweater mirroring an abstract painting.

Burberry reinterprets their classic trench in a red fur.

It may be cold outside, but that doesn't mean you have to discard great design when you can choose from these warm and fuzzy beauties.
As you get cozy in sweaters and furs, you can warm up to Jack Frost and happily sing "Let it Snow."

  1. I love how all the designers have re-invented the fur into their collections. What I love most though, is how we can all turn to faux fur whenever our inner Greta Garbo is wanting to emerge!

    Great blog!

  2. Ooh, so adoring the inspiration behind this post - the photographs of Clara Bow and Greta Garbo are stunning; and faux fur is such a luxurious treat. I was just listening to Baby It's Cold Outside last night - I can never resist that song!! :)
