Paris street fashion this October was dominated by two trends, moto jackets and fur. The two trends married at times, with a fur scarf wrapped on top of a moto jacket - this was probably my favorite look. But, as the Fall weather became more crisp with the threat of Winter around the corner, the moto jackets were shed and the streets were filled in uniform-like-fashion with fur. Even the Parisian men participated in the fur street fashion, wearing fur on the collars of their parkas. I have never been so upset with myself for failing to bring my vintage fur jacket (thank you, grandma) on a trip - as I don't get many (meaning, none) chances to wear a fur jacket in the San Francisco climate. Here is a round-up of this Fall season's best of Paris street style fur (or faux fur, as you like).
If I saw this shaggy jacket on the clothing rack, I would think "muppet". But, I must admit that it looks 70s stylish paired with denim and aviator glasses.
I love this 1930s vintage stole look perfected by Olivia Palermo. Finally, the vintage fur stoles tucked in closets for decades can be paraded on the streets!
The combo of a soft fur scarf with a sleek moto jacket, just may be my favorite trend of the moment.
Fur pairs equally well with glamorous silver heals and chunky silver jewelry.
A cape is one of my all time favorite accessories, and it was just perfected with this fur hood.
Here are two very elegant choices, but I might prefer the "simplicity" of Olivia Palermo's wrap over the Alexander Wang inspired layers.
An emerald green shaggy fur coat that could, again, easily fall victim to a muppet, but this looks amazing on Karmen Pedaru (of course, she has an advantage as a model).
This looks is the coup d'etat of the current Paris street fashion moment: black ripped skinny jeans, moto boots, Panama hat, and fur, et voila you are a Parisian!
