Fall 2014 Trend: Patchwork Fur

It’s probably a curse to wish this winter is anything like last year’s, but if it is, we’ll be prepared with the season’s flurry of statement-making, colorful patchwork fur coats.

Understandably, you might think these pieces are hard to pull off, but if you keep the rest of your look simple—think a pair of faded blue jeans, rugged boats, and flat-knit sweaters for day, or calf-length skirts and pumps for evening—these can add a fun, slightly ’70s vibe to your winter wardrobe.
