Welcome to fall, everyone! Fall is the favorite season for lovers of fashion (and pumpkin spice lattes) everywhere. One of the things this blog hopes to do more is discuss Men’s Fashion. Our main lady Lisa, fashion stylist, personal stylist and owner of Barry Chic, loves to style men. So the question Lisa and all of us at Barry Chic have on our minds this fall is: what’s the deal with the push for men to wear fur by the fashion industry this fall (2016)?

Men in fur, is it for you?

Traditionally, in the United States, we think of Fur as something only women and Kanye can pull off.

However, the runways this past spring were full of fur just for men! Coats and accessories, totally or partially covered in real and faux fur. Whether you love fur, or prefer cruelty free faux fur, isn’t what we’re debating today. Today, we really want to resolve whether or not men may actually decide to embrace fur into their wardrobes.

Here are some examples from the Men’s Fashion Week Fall 2016 runways:

So what do we think? Is this a trend we want our men to get behind? Or is this a trend we can’t wait to see left behind?
