Are you the lucky one in your family who inherited your grandmother’s vintage furs? I’m not, but if I was, I’d do my best to modernize them and make them presentable enough to be released into today’s fashion landscape. Don’t let those gorgeous pieces go to waste in your closet.

Pair a vintage fur coat with a fun graphic tee, like in the ensemble shown above. Style longer coats with bold printed leggings or a statement shoe that says, “Look how effortlessly I just threw together my trendy shoes with this family heirloom.” There are tons of fresh ways to bring them up to date – all it takes is a little creativity.
