The Options You Have With a Vintage Fur Coat
A vintage fur coat can be one you’ve owned for many years, inherited or even purchased at a vintage shop. Wearing vintage fur coats is exciting, but there may come a time where you want to upgrade or simply don’t want to wear the particular coat anymore. The good news is you have plenty of options whether you want to keep it in your collection or repurpose it entirely. Many people opt for fur restyling, but you may also simply choose to store yours to preserve it for future generations. Here are some of the options you have when it comes to vintage fur coats.
Store Your Vintage Fur Properly
If you don’t plan on wearing your vintage fur coat and don’t want to get rid of it right now, be sure to store it properly. Most of the time this means taking it to a professional fur storage facility to keep it in a climate-controlled closet. Vintage fur coats may be a little more delicate than newer fur, so the best way to protect the integrity of the coat is to store it properly. Then when you decide what you want to do with it, you can take it out of storage and move forward with a fur coat in great condition.
Have It Restyled
A common option people choose to take with their vintage fur coats is fur restyling. You can have it made into a vest to wear throughout the year, shorten the sleeves slightly and much more. In fact, many people choose fur restyling even if they don’t have vintage fur coats since it gives them the chance to wear their fur more often. The main idea is to continue wearing your fur coat in some form or fashion, even if it’s not in the original form.
Turn One Coat Into Multiple Accessories
Turning vintage fur coats into real fur accessories is becoming increasingly popular as well. You could turn it into a scarf, a headband, shoes, handbags, pillows, blankets and much more. If you have multiple vintage fur coats, you could turn them into interior accessories to completely transform a room in your home with pillows, blankets and more. Real fur accessories can and should be incorporated creatively and can be designed to fit your specific tastes.
