Baby, It’s Cold Outside! 4 Reasons to Invest in a Fur Coat for Minnesota Winters

Honestly! With sub-zero weather for days on end, do you really need any more reasons to invest in a fur coat? We have solid reasons for those of you who need justification to take the plunge. For those of you who are sitting on the fence, shivering in your faux fur, let yourself be persuaded by the arguments that follow!

Reason #1: Bundle Up and Stay Warm

If you live in Minnesota, you know that it gets seriously cold every winter. About this time of year, we hit the deep freeze. Sub-zero temperatures have lasted as long four days, on occasion. When you figure in just a little bit of a breeze, the wind chill kicks in and makes for a miserable walk, even for short distances. Adults and kids bundle up to keep warm, and that usually means bulky, uncomfortable and rather inefficient coats, scarves, gloves or mittens and hats. If you don’t want to experience frostbite, you’d better bundle up good.

Natural fur is superlative when it comes to warmth. When the thought of the wind chill factor causes you to shudder, the warmth of natural fur is like grandma’s cozy hug.

Reason #2: Fashion Forward

Natural Fur has been making a strong comeback since the turn of the millennium. Several reasons have been cited for the change from the 80s and 90s when wearing fur was considered a moral outrage. Furriers have been working quietly and steadily to rebrand themselves, and designers have slowly been adding fur back into their design lines.

Wearing fur is not frowned upon now, as it was a few decades ago. In fact, it’s fashionable and makes a statement about luxury. Your winter fur will keep you toasty warm and looking good.

Reason #3: Durability

Non-fur coats will not last as long as a fur coat. Fabric weakens, frays, falls apart. Fur endures for generations, when properly cared for. If you are in the market for a durable winter coat that will keep you warm, no matter what the weather is like outside, you need to consider the merits of fur.

Reason #4: The Best Investment

When you buy a winter coat, chances are your thoughts are about style and warmth. When you buy a fur coat, you get style, warmth and you make an investment. Your new fur will carry you through many a winter. If you take good care of it, you will have it for years to come, long after your other winter coats have worn out.
