You’ve just inherited your mother’s fur coat as a gift or scored a deal on a vintage mink coat at a consignment store. While you love the fabulous fox, you’ve discovered the coat’s style is too prissy and prim for your style.
No need to return the fur coat to your mom – you can transform the fur by restyling it.
Fur Coat for Women Tip #1- Tear out fashion mag pictures from top magazines for mink restyling hints.
Don’t visit the local furrier without gathering a few style ideas for your coat. To transform your coat from retro posh to new school pretty, check out Vogue, Marie Claire and Harper’s Bazaar for inspiration that will help you update your fur coat.
Fur Coat for Women Tip #2-Find a furrier to restyle your coat.
Skip a visit to your local dry cleaner. Restyling fur coats for women requires an expert’s gentle touch. Take a quick poll from your fur-loving friends for referrals . Or ask your dry cleaner for the best fur restorer in your area.
Fur Coat for Women Tip #3- Determine what the price required to upgrade the garment.
Do you want a full-length fox cut down to a short and sexy jacket? Or would you rather turn a short mink coat into a mink hat and mink scarf set?
With your fashion tears in hand, show the professional furrier your desired style options to get an exact price quote before she restyles your garment.
Ask your furrier to check the condition of your vintage or heirloom fur before altering the coat. Your mother’s old fox or vintage mink stole may need cleaning before any alterations take place.
Fur Coat for Women Tip #4-Plan for a lengthy alteration period.
Whipping your woman’s fur coat into a new fashion-forward creation takes time. Plan at least 4 to 8 weeks for alterations and restyling. Plan to upgrade your fur coat in late August or early September, so you can be the best-dressed fashionista this winter.
