Now Trending: Faux Fur

Fur is big for fall, and faux fur is even bigger. Kindest to Mother Nature’s creatures, faux fur trims have been popping up in the usual places (coats, scarves, vests) and in some unusual places as well (booties, bags, and skirts). The trick is to pick just one item, as not to over-do. Make one furry statement in a wrap or bag, and then keep the rest texturally simple. In this way, you allow your faux fur piece to make the statement it was created to make.
