Fur, worn throughout history countless ways, comes in different shapes, sizes and styles. Mink fur coats particularly have been around for centuries getting more stylish as the years pass by. That vintage fur coat that your grandmother wore tends to be heavier, longer, and more outdated than the current mink coats made and sold today. Nowadays, mink coats tend to be lighter in weight, sheared, shorter in length, and have endless amounts of style at every price range.
Along with being lighter and sheared, the horizontal style fur coat is no longer just for the European woman. Horizontal pieces are the new vertical and being spotted everywhere on the runways of New York Fashion Week, the streets of every major city, and on the everyday woman regardless of shape or size. The new mink coat is beautiful and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. Clearly, this is not your grandmother’s mink.
