The Kardashians are copping a lot of heat for their latest outfits.

Reality television Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian have come under fire from their millions of fans after posting images of themselves wearing what appears to be animal fur coats.

Posting a series of images to their respective Instagram accounts over the past 48 hours, the iconic sisters can be seen wearing white, black and tan coloured fur coats and posing for a number of photos shared across their respective Instagram accounts.

“Mix tape dropping in 2018,” Khloe captioned a mirror selfie image of herself, Kim, Kourtney and longtime friend Khadijah McCray all in matching furs.

The same image was later shared on Kourtney’s account and within minutes of being posted, began to draw ire from Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans.

“All I see is poor animals,” one Instagram user commented.

“Didn’t you do an ad campaign against wearing fur?” asked another. “What a world we live in.”

Another wrote, “All of the dead animals in this photo…”

A number of other high-profile Instagram users have reposted the images criticising the famous siblings on their outerwear choice.

The big problem with this, of course, is that it’s not yet clear at this point whether or not the coats are actually real fur.

But, as pointed out by many commenters, both Khloe and Kourtney sisters have a long history of supporting animal rights groups and speaking out about cruelty against animals.

In 2014, Khloe Kardashian headed out wearing a very real looking floor-length faux fur coat with the words “FVCK YO FUR” painted on the back in red paint.

“Fake fur all day people,” the 32-year-old said at the time.

Just two years earlier in 2012, though, Kim was flour-bombed by a PETA activist while walking a red carpet in New York. She was not wearing fur at the time.

And while there’s a very good chance that the women in the photo are wearing real animal fur, there’s also just as good a chance that they’re not, which is probably worth remembering.

In pics: Every Kardashian outfit has to fulfill three of these five qualities (Provided by Refinery 29)
<p>To every season, Kim, Kim, Kim.</p><p>That's one of the many reasons some of us (hello!) love her. Regardless of the time of year, current trends, or TV-show monologues, Kim Kardashian West embodies only her best self, dressing in what she loves and what she looks powerful in. And that’s reason enough to want to emulate her — or, at the very least, use her aesthetic to justify adding to ours.</p><p>So here’s how you can embody the majesty of our favorite mom, knowing you only ever need to check off three of the following at any one time. Kim K for life.</p><p><strong>1. Tight</strong></p><p>I know you’re very shocked at this recommendation, so please take a minute to collect yourself before we continue. Your tank top should be tight. Your T-shirt should be tight. Your dress should be tight. Your long-sleeved turtleneck should be tight.</p><p>And it’s a lot, I know, but take a breath (since you may not be able to later if your outfit is as snug as some of her dresses are). “Tight” isn’t a brand, and it can be part of a bigger picture. Ease into it with a snug-fitting turtleneck and high-rise vintage jeans. Layer a dress with an oversize bomber. Pair a large knit sweater with an ankle-length tube skirt. This is your house. You’re the captain now.</p><p><strong>2. Long</strong></p><p>Excess fabric is frightening, regardless of whether it’s part of Yeezy seasons one through pi or whether it's in the spirit of Kim K’s Alice + Olivia velvet number worn back in September. But dial down the anxiety and consider this: To channel the majesty of Kardashian, balance the abundance of hemline by keeping part of your dress or skirt fitted, whether above or below the waist. Remember that when Kim takes the long road, she’s not decked out like an extra on Little House on the Prairie — either her pieces are fitted or her neckline is low. The '90s are back, but none of us needs to return to afternoons in ankle-length skirts and button-up blouses. (Or: shout-out to everyone else who dressed tragically in 2002.)</p><p><strong>3. Nude</strong></p><p>First of all, I mean the fabric tone. (So stop it.) Second of all, this one’s easy: Choose a fabric that matches your skin tone, and then bask in the expressions of people who think you’re not wearing anything at all. So take that, family-this-Thanksgiving.</p><p><strong>4. Sheer</strong></p><p>Here’s the thing about wearing sheer pieces: Just do it. As we recall, the '90s were chock-full of lace and mesh, and we all know how pre-Y2K-centric our wardrobes have become — particularly over the last two years.</p><p>But the thing about Kim K is this: She takes risks. Over the course of autumn, we saw her in everything from a sheer bodysuit paired with Adidas tear-aways (#1998) to floor-length lace, capitalizing on the Victorian thirst of F/W. Plus, it’s not like you have to sentence yourself to exhibitionism should you not be super into it. Like Kim, you can pair something ultra-sheer with nude pieces worn underneath (as <a href="http://www.harpersbazaar.com/celebrity/latest/news/a17972/kim-kardashian-nude-balmain-paris-fashion-week/">she did at Paris Fashion Week in a gown by Olivier Rousteing</a>), or you can layer a sheer tank with a contrasting bralette or bra — remembering, of course, that if somebody’s bothered by your vibe, that is entirely their problem.</p><p><strong>5. Victorian</strong></p><p>Gather ’round and repeat after me, friends: The Victorian trend doesn’t mean any of us needs to dress like Jane Eyre if petticoats aren’t your thing. Instead, look upon Kim’s quote from <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/kim-kardashian-corset-tshirt_us_57b1c01fe4b007c36e4f3acd">back in August</a> in which she sang the praises of corsets, which she swore were comfortable.</p><p>“It’s just super-cute and different and just easy and effortless,” she said. “I don’t want to overdo it, but I like so many looks that I’m just like, whatever, I’m going to wear it until I get tired of it.”</p><p>And, TBH, she looked super-comfy back in September in jeans and a corset during Kanye’s Miami stop on his Saint Pablo Tour. But if you’d rather walk into the ocean than wear a corset in any capacity, rest knowing that the Victorian trend transcends underwear. Chokers, lace detail, vintage slips worn as dresses, velvet, and dark, dramatic tones are all part of the 19th-century revival. Or, in the words of myself to a Banana Republic sales associate yesterday: “I’m just trying to dress like a sad, old ghost.”</p> Every Kim Kardashian Outfit Has To Fulfill 3 Of These 5 Qualities
