Faux fur is everywhere this fall – and we’re glad it’s faux and not the real thing! The great thing about faux is that you can wild up your look for a fraction of the price, and still maintain your integrity. From hats to neck wraps to vests, even purses, there is a piece of the beast for everyone.
If you want a dash of warmth but don’t want to go too over the top, try a neck a wrap or stole. This faux fur stole from Topshop.com adds an element of warmth and distinction without screaming “look at me!”
If you prefer a more traditional piece Piperlime.com has a great selection of faux fur pieces. I particularly like this long cut vest. It hits at a flattering point on the hips and lengthens your torso without adding too much bulk.
To go where the wild things are, try a leopard print purse in a great faux fur texture. Isabella’s Journey, available at Amazon.com has some great animal print purses and totes that are both fun and functional.
It’s ok to go faux. Just remember to keep it simple – no more than one piece at a time – and remember to consider a donation to your local animal shelter or animal rescue league this holiday season.
