Find out about the company

If you’re interested in purchasing from a company, find out about them:

  • How long has the company been in business?
  • Do they have a return policy? This shows that they’re confident in what they sell. It also gives you a chance to see and feel the product without having to make a commitment.
  • What are their standards of production and quality?

Some companies use harmful chemicals and other questionable practices when producing fur products in order to offer lower prices. If you want reassurance on whether your fur was produced safely and ethically, ask the company questions.

Choosing a style of fur coat

Color

Do you want a natural fur color, or a dyed fur? Natural fur has variation in color, while dyed furs tend to be more solid in color (not all dyed furs are one solid color ).

You can step out of the box and go with an outrageous, neon colored fur or stay opt for more of a classic, natural look.

Shape

There are full and fluffy options that can add a luscious feel and a lot of texture. A piece can also be more slender and subtle, but can still add a lot to an outfit.

In the end, the shape that you prefer is the garment that your should purchase. Everyone is going to have at least a slightly different opinion on one piece.

What’s the occasion?
