For women and men, fur is the highest standard of clothing. And for many of those fur lovers, mink is the crème de la crème. Minks are a part of the weasel family and can be found in nature throughout America and other locations around the globe. However, most mink fur is now ranched on small farms to ensure a higher quality product compared to mink found in the wild.
Mink is one of the most popular furs because of its luxurious feel and elegant appearance. It’s also versatile: perfect for causal and formal events.
If you already have a mink coat or you are interested in purchasing one in the future, here are some tips on how you can wear it fashionably for fall:
1) Mink Fur in Exotic Colors and Prints
One of the reasons mink is so versatile is because it comes in many colors. Wild mink normally comes in dark brown or black, but domesticated mink fur can come in colors such as:
Mink can also be dyed for even more color options. Global fashion designers love mink’s plush look and feel combined with bright, dynamic shades.
Your grandmother may own a mink coat in brown or black, but don’t feel limited by those colors. The big four fashion weeks (New York, London, Milan, and Paris) are debuting mink in colors ranging from deep jewel tones to gentle pastels. When you’re going big in color, stay with a monochromatic color scheme for the rest of your outfit. The effect will be slimming for any body shape, and reflect another hot trend: wearing a single hue.
2) Men in Mink Coats and Jackets

3) Accessories and Trim in Mink Fur
Mink coats can start under $1,000 and shoot up to over $10,000. If you love the look of mink, but not the price, take a look at mink fur accessories. Fall has arrived and chilly temperatures are here to stay, so now is the perfect time to try mink scarves, gloves, hats, and more. A simple accent can transform your look from ordinary to exceptional.
Pair your favorite shades with a velvety mink scarf or wrap for an instant Hollywood look. For a modern look, try a mink fur vest with skinny jeans and boots. If you want to add extra warmth to your favorite piece, add a fur collar or trim to a leather jacket. Be unique and get ready to rock your mink fur this fall.
