Winter 2013: The Year of Faux Fur

faux fur, faux shiver.

We all know that wearing real fur is a big no-no, but we ALSO know that a gorgeous, soft, faux fur item is an easy to way to make a HUGE statement with just one article from your wardrobe.

Luckily for a gal on a budget, there are some really great faux items out there that will keep your outfit fancy, while your wallet stays nice and comfortable.

Let’s start slow. Maybe a large faux fur jacket isn’t your thing, but a little trim is?

Perhaps this gorgeous wool coat from Urban Outfitters, on sale for only $79, suits your fancy!

We love this one for it’s classic feel. The gorgeous caramel color, combined with those large silver buttons and the muted faux fox fur create the perfect bold fashion statement without going full on fur.

Continuing on, with a bit more but nothing too crazy, we found a beautiful shrug from French Connection also on sale for only $79. Pair this with a tight fitting long sleeved shirt, some dark denim skinny jeans and a pair of boots, and you’ve got yourself a casual outfit that can easily be worn for an evening out with a quick make-up change.

It’s time to take you out of your comfort zone, and dive head first into this beautiful snow leopard vest from Nordstrom for $85. We love the hint of leopard, without a full-fledged kill on your back.

And finally, let’s just go for it and step outside in a full on faux fur jacket. We promise you won’t feel shy in this awesome, slate grey piece by Guess that will only set you back $88.  The wispiness of this style is what sets it apart. We’re obsessed, and you should be too.

So that’s it. Add one of these pieces to your wardrobe this winter and be prepared for heads to turn.
