As a designer, I never stop thinking about how to make the most fundamental things, like staying warm, look chic and beautiful. When doing this I almost always look to the past to see how it was done when wardrobe was so ornamental and special, each outfit had such careful thought put into it, and the more accessories, the better! My latest love has become the fur (or better yet, faux fur) arm muff, they give this extra piece and texture to a winter look that I love. Let’s bring back the winter muff look, what do you think? Check out this ultra fuzzy version in a Dior campaign from 1954. When you need both hands, slip it over one arm, and voila! They are just so chic, way cuter, and warmer, than any mittens I’ve ever seen.
