They say “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”…meaning in other words, you can’t have something or someone who has long been doing something, switch their way of thinking and try something new or in a different way. However, today’s look is going to challenge that notion. This vintage fur coat (that used to be my grandmother’s) has been repurposed and reimagined to be worn with distressed denim and new balances.
Yes. A once formal, leather and fur overcoat is the perfect item to pair with jeans and sneakers; the perfect balance of old and new, formal and causal.
So, next time you come across an item of clothing that’s been lingering in the back of your closet….don’t be scared dot try out some new tricks
