Inclement weather got you down? Then try out some fur-trimmed coats and accessories, one of this year's hottest--not to mention warmest--fashion statements.
"Of any season, this one's really been hot for fur," says Kristin Philp, a coat buyer for Bullocks Wilshire. "New York sells them like crazy, but here it's a big fashion statement."
I. Magnin in Sherman Oaks, for instance, is offering beige or black fox trim to drape around coat collars for $285 and little cuffs that attach with velcro for $210.
"You get two cuffs. People like them," says saleswoman Candy Bachelis.
Retailers say fur trim, which combines a classic look with street chic, is enjoying its biggest resurgence since the early 1960s. Some Bullock's Wilshire stores offer leather jackets with fox tuxedo collars and cuffs for $600.
