->'''Delysia:''' "There is something so sensual about fur next to the skin, don't you think?"
-->-- ''MissPettigrewLivesForADay''

In fiction, many characters wear fur garments, just because it's luxurious and glamorous.

Although fur historically was worn for warmth in RealLife, it's also for centuries been associated with wealth and glamour. Thus some outfits have fur, just because it makes everything's more stylish, more grand.

In Europe, certain furs were so prized that for a time there were [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumptuary_law Sumptuary Laws]] about [[DressCode who could wear what kind of fur]]. Ermine was among the most prized, used to trim [[RequisiteRoyalRegalia royal robes]] and line {{Pimped Out Cape}}s (hence the reason the trope is named ErmineCapeEffect). While the poor also wore hides, it was for utility instead of decoration, so their clothes were made with common pelts like sheepskin and rabbit.

So this trope is also as old in fiction, but {{film}} is where it's most evident. It was used extensively in the GoldenAgeOfHollywood just for the visual splendor it brought. At one point furs were so common they didn't provide characterization the way they do today under the HollywoodDressCode. The exceptions were very specific outfits, like the [[PimpDuds classic pimp coat]]. What fur was worn was generally chosen one of two ways. The first was reflecting whatever trends was popular for a certain demographic. The second was whatever the designer felt like.

Also, in video games, fur shading also makes a good reason to have characters wear fur. Any ads for furs would count as UpMarketing, as well as ads for other luxury products having the models wear fur.

These days furs are less common and tend to show ConspicuousConsumption. The trope now has competition from FurAndLoathing, where a woman in a fur coat is evil -- the RichBitch, TheVamp or worse. Other characters who wear fur tend to do it for a single special episode.

'''Now since this is about use of fur to pretty up a scene, it's not just ''any'' instance of wearing fur.''' Even if a fur is worn for warmth, it also has to be an excuse to have a nice fur in the scene to count for this trope. Thus an Inuit parka usually doesn't count, unless the parka is designed to be stylish.

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* In the opening of one of the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' [[{{Filler}} movies]], Minako is trying on different clothes, and ends with showing up in a purple fur coat (also with Artemis lying around her neck). The others aren't impressed, but more because of the silly way she's acting.
** In a SickEpisode where Usagi is having a fever dream, she's on a date with Mamoru, and she's wearing a PimpedOutDress that has a neckline of white fur.

* Fay from ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'' wears a huge, luxuriant white fur overcoat--over at least two more full layers of clothing! Since he's from an ice-world, bulky fur is one of the few ways to glam up his appearance.
* Satella from ''ChronoCrusade'', the rich MsFanservice, wears a dress with a fur-lined collar.
* The fur-trimmed capes MarieAntoinette wears in ''RoseOfVersailles'', as well as [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marie_antoinette_rov_episode2_9227.jpg the dress]] with GemEncrusted ermine.

* Some of [[IdolSinger Minmay's]] outfits in ''{{Macross}}'' have fur trim.

She sometimes pulls it out to play with, and during [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67ttc7i4Nu8 the credits]] it seems to pose like it's still alive. And a few times she pretends her tail is just a wolf fur she wears under her skirt.

It's also never seen after that. This could [[JustifiedTrope be because of all the times the superheroes' headquarters are destroyed]], or because she got smart and put it in a safe place to wear "off panel" (like when the heads at Marvel allow her to come back).
** Her mother also wore a brown mink coat when her parents first appeared.
* In ''DangerGirl'', Abigail wears a mink coat to infiltrate a party.
* In Silver Age ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' comics, LoisLane was constantly competing with Lana Lang for Superman's affections.

* ''BroadwayMelodyOf1940'' had an agent who used an ermine cape (not the [[ErmineCape royal kind]]) as a way to get dates. It was apparently based on a RealLife Hollywood agent, just that the real version used a silver fox wrap instead.
* ''Literature/MadameBovary''(1991 adaptation): The eponymous madame wears a white mink stole [[AtTheOperaTonight to the opera]]. This was either a mistake or expediency by the costumer, as [[NewerThanTheyThink white mink wasn't around until the late 1940s]]. A white fur wrap back then would likely have been fox, rabbit, or ermine.
* ''LoveInTheAfternoon'': Borrowing an ermine coat was one of the ways [[Creator/AudreyHepburn Ariane]] gains Frank Flannigan's interest. It seems to work when in a SexyDiscretionShot, the camera focuses on [[DressHitsFloor Ariane letting her coat fall to the floor]].

* ''Film/AMuppetFamilyChristmas'' sends this one up.

Piggy is about to karate chop Kermit into next week, but then Maureen exclaims that she is Piggy's biggest fan, and Piggy quickly warms up to her.
* ''Film/ThatLadyInErmine'' is certainly just using fur for glamor. Despite the name, the title character seems to be wearing an ermine coat, just because. It could have been a lot of things for what the plot was about. The final scene of the movie has her descendant wear a different kind of white ermine coat, that more fit that era, [[HollywoodCostuming version at least sort of]], that also had a white ermine hat and muff.
* ''Film/ThatTouchOfMink'' also uses this trope just for glamor. There is a mink coat, and... it has almost nothing else to do with the plot, but it's pretty.
* In ''SnowWhiteAndTheThreeStooges'', the [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses eponymous princess]] wears skating dresses trimmed with white fur, one as a kid and [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carol_heiss_snow_white.jpg another as an adult, that includes an ermine muff]].

* In ''AmericanDreamer'', Kathy, thinking she's Rebbecca Ryan, goes on a [[ShoppingMontage shopping spree]], which includes several furs, which also get plenty of screentime later on.
* ''TheBadAndTheBeautiful'' has at least one fur in each flashback. Respectively there was an ermine jacket, a dress trimmed with white fox, and a white mink wrap.
* ''{{Gypsy}}'': Notably a white rabbit coat and hat June wears for one of the acts, and a mink coat Gypsy wears that she lets her mother wear at the end. The first film version even had Gypsy wear a dress with a skirt covered entirely with white fox.

* ''Film/GentlemenPreferBlondes'' had plenty. The opening musical number had the girls just holding white ermine coats, and then just tossing them off the stage.
* The films JayneMansfield starred in gave her plenty of furs, from several fox wraps in ''Film/TheGirlCantHelpIt'', to [[GoingFurASwim a white mink coat and a swimsuit]] in ''Film/WillSuccessSpoilRockHunter''.
* In the 1971 film ''WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'', the bratty Veruca Salt wore a white mink coat (one of four other mink coats she has) to the factory. And the actress's coat was specially made for her, since mink coats weren't commonly made in girls' sizes.
** Julie Dawn Cole, who played Veruca in the original movie, [[WordOfGod later claimed]] she was yelled at by the director in RealLife after accidentally ruining it after leaving it on a chair on set.

* ''EasterParade'' has several fur wraps, including a long white ermine stole that Don shops for, and Nadine wears later on.

* ''Literature/TheWidowOfDesire'' is a ColdWar spy thriller written in TheEighties, about how a Russian furrier living in the US is murdered, and his American wife learns it was because he was involved in trying to bust apart a Soviet coup attempt. A white Russian Lynx coat even ends up being a MacGuffin.
* In LouisaMayAlcott's short story ''AChristmasDream'', a rich girl named Effie has a dream where an angel makes a grand Christmas for poor children, including [[GorgeousGarmentGeneration turning the show falling on her into a white fur cape and hood]]. When she tells her dream to her family, her mother decides to make that dream happen, right down to buying Effie a little white fur coat to wear, to look like the outfit the angel was wearing.
* In ''Literature/BrideOfTheRatGod'' by Creator/BarbaraHambly, the would-be bride is a movie star, Christine, who has a sable coat, and chinchilla coat, and a monkey-trimmed jacket. She gives her sister-in-law, Norah, the monkey fur coat, and Norah also gets to wear Christin's chinchilla few times (the clothing equivalent of loaning a Mercedes), which she actually is glad for when the nights get cold.
** Christine also wears a fur wrap on two covers of the book. One has her wearing a chinchilla wrap, and the other has her wearing a white fur wrap.
* The ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' books don't hide where fur comes from, but it accepts it as a part of life in this pseudo-medieval world. One of the most popular glamour furs is the white fur of the [[HorseOfADifferentColor Vermine]]. There are a few digs about it [[RuleOfFunny for the sake of humor]], such as the line, "the fur is highly prized, especially by the vermine itself", in ''Discworld/{{Sourcery}}''.
* ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' books and [[Film/LordOfTheRings film]] has nobility and royalty wearing fur occasionally.
* Sacher-Masoch's ''Literature/VenusInFurs'' combines this trope with a heavy dose of domme and the title character's only duty as the narrator's Mistress being to swathe herself in sumptuous furs, regardless of the temperature. Played as a kink, but referencing the historical luxury and power overtones of wearing furs.
* ''WhateleyUniverse'' example: RichBitch Solange in her custom-made furs in "Ayla and the Great Shoulder Angel Conspiracy". Kodiak even thinks about getting her to wear her fur and nothing else that evening...
* The eponymous Snow Queen of the Creator/HansChristianAndersen story dressed in furs (and thus does in ''{{Fables}}''), as does [[TheChroniclesOfNarnia Jadis, the White Witch]], who was likely inspired by her.
* In ''{{Neuromancer}}'', furs are grown from tissue on a bed of collagen, because most animals have died out, making them relatively widespread for a dystopia.
* The Creator/RoaldDahl short story ''Mrs. Bixby and the Colonel's Coat'' is about an adulterous woman trying to keep the mink coat she got from her lover without raising her husband's suspicions. It was adapted into an episode of ''AlfredHitchcockPresents''.
* ''TheBobbseyTwins'': In the early editions of the very first book (published 1904), Nan Bobbsey -- at age eight -- says that all she want for Christmas is "a set of furs ... a beautiful brown set, just like Mamma's." And she gets them.
* In the Literature/{{Xanth}} novel ''Centaur Isle'', Princess Irene is given a silver-lined fur by the centaurs.
* Example from ''Icerigger'' by Creator/AlanDeanFoster is unusual because the girl manages to be covered by skin-tight mink fur coat ''and'' be naked, making her all the more sexy. The natives of the planet Tran-ky-ky are described as "bats wearing mink coats". Most are tall and wide, except the petite (i.e. of human proportions) RebelliousPrincess[=/=]RoyalBrat Elfa. In the scene when she tries to seduce the protagonist Ethan[[note]]Being a proper gentleman and not wishing to anger her father Ethan threw her out of his room. (He only pushed slightly, but Tran are much lighter than they look.) Later she married one of his Tran friends.[[/note]]:
-->Her outfit was done up like holiday packaging by a clumsy six-year-old. The fact that the skin beneath was covered with light gray fur made it appear no less naked. Excepting the feline head and broad feet, and those piercing vertical pupils, she might have passed for a tridee starlet clad in skin-tight mink.
