Why Should You Wear Real Fur Coats, Hats and Other Garments or Accessories?
Real fur coats and accessories or fake fur coats and accessories? This debate has been ongoing for years now. People have been opposing and siding real fur coats and ultimately, it all falls back to the difference of opinion. Even the biggest names in the fashion industry have their own opinion on all this. As said by the late Karl Lagerfeld, a German fashion designer, fur is an industry, and it’s legal. As long as people use leather and eat meat, it’s not a problem.
Of course, we agree with Karl Lagerfeld and his opinion. However, we do realize that not everyone agrees to this. The answer differs for everyone. But, here, in this blog, we have compiled a few of the many reasons why we say that the real fur industry should prevail and how and why it is beneficial for us.
Benefits of wearing real fur
Firstly, real animal fur is extremely comfortable to wear, and it’s lightweight too. Despite real fur being heavier than faux fur or any other man-made materials, it feels lighter as there is more room to breathe. In addition to that, you only need to put on one real fur coat, and you’ll stay warm in harsh winters. But if it’s a sweater or a faux fur coat, chances are you’ll have to bundle up to stay warm. Not to mention that real fur coats are soft and look luxurious.

Moving to the next point, when it comes to warmth, real fur coats are unbeatable. In other words, it provides more warmth than a man-made sweater or even a thick coat. As we all know that animals have to survive extreme conditions and also need to be agile enough to dodge predators, so their coats do the same for us what they did for them. They keep us warm, no matter how bad the weather may be. And they are lightweight, allowing us to breathe and go about our business without any inconvenience.

Real fur lasts a very long time, especially if one maintains it properly. This is the reason why fur coats are mostly passed down from generation to generation. In addition, maintenance of a fur coat can be tough for someone purchasing a coat for the first time. But with time, it gets easier. Nowadays, we even have so many sure storage options and stores where you can hand in your coat for maintenance and cleaning, and they’ll get the job done.

Unlike the olden days when people preferred functionality over fashionable, now, you can do both. You can buy a coat for the sake of warmth, and at the same time, you can look stylish and wear it to fancy parties. If anything, the coat adds a luxurious and glamorous look to your outfit, all while you being comfortable and warm.

Animals are a renewable resource, and that means that they are sustainable as well. They don’t hurt the environment as faux fur does. Being made from plastic, faux fur contributes to pollution; meanwhile, animal fur breaks down, or you can say, degrades once it wears down.
