Furs rode back into fashion on a big wave a few years ago.

It’s said that in time of economic downturns, people look for ways they can find luxury and glamour. The resurgence of furs continues strongly this year because of innovative products that meet the need for lightweight practicality.

If you haven’t shopped for fur garments recently, you might be surprised. Knitted fur coats and jackets are amazingly lightweight, feeling more like a sweater than a heavy winter garment. These pieces can be so light that they are often substituted for a blazer or jacket.

Prices are appealing, varying from a couple of hundred dollars for a fun vest all the way up to the sky for Russian sable and exotics.

Fur accessories are also hot this season. A fur scarf is a must, but you can also have fun with fur-trimmed sweaters, fur hats and fur collars. Just as you have a closet full of coats, multiple furs are needed for dressy, casual, and sporty outings.

Here are your top 10 ways to wear fur this year:

• The animal print fur

• The fur stole, a must for evening occasions.

• Fur scarves in bright colors

• The dress-length fur coat, in a bright or neutral.

• The car coat, for everyday errands

• Color in a fun fur

• The wrap in purple fox

• The fur-trimmed sweater

• The fur vest, the hottest style of all because it’s so easy and sporty.

• The travel coat: mink reversible to rain silk.
