The fur stole holds an iconic place in fashion that may wax and wane in widespread popularity but never goes out of style.

The best stole for you will be one that fills a range of roles in your wardrobe, with the versatility to work with a number of outfits. Because a fur stole doesn’t have a lot of natural structure, you can drape and wear it in a number of creative ways to get extra use out of it and match the way you wear it with the rest of your outfit.

Of course, because fur is always popular, you know your investment will pay off.
You also should consider the color. Depending on your figure, darker hues are more flattering if you fall into the curvier category.

The most classic, smaller fur stoles sit comfortably on the neck and reach over the shoulders. They look functional and are beautiful while helping keep you warm and looking stylish.. On the other hand, a slightly larger rectangle stole can sit in a number of different ways. You can run it over your neck and shoulders or half-way down your arms. If you’re wearing a formal dress, fewer folds and a simpler draping might compliment the elegance of the ensemble. If you are wearing something more dynamic, and fun, wrapping it or wearing it off-centered is a good way to embrace that energy; if long enough throw a belt around the stole to create a whole new look with a waist.
The best thing about a fur stole is that you can make a relatively small investment in a fun go-to-piece that is functional and extremely versatile. You can use them to grow your collection for a powerful wardrobe ready to deliver high fashion for any occasion.
