It’s fun and fearless and dramatically fashion-forward. Go with the faux this season. It’s a fur sure thing. You’ll find faux fur lined boots, bags, vests, jackets — even dresses — this holiday, and yes, even in the semi-tropical climate of California — it’s a “go.”
Worried about looking a little too Tarzan-and-Jane, or Flinestone-esque? There is a tiny bit of science to nail the haute look: tame the trend by picking one key piece at a time and wearing it well. We went shopping and snagged our favorite fur finds — take a look:
Animal Magnetism. Watch out — –there are very few things with more alluring appeal than a cropped fur coat. Prepare to be looked over when you add this layer to your look this season, but hey, a little extra attention never hurt anyone. We found this out-on-the-town version at BCBGMAXAZRIA in Westside Pavilion ($218 ).
The Real Deal. Looking for that perfect, stylish gift for her? Treat your sister, your mom, your boss — and, of course, yourself — to a little bit of luxe heaven this winter with a pair of for-the-coldest-days faux-lined earmuffs. Whether you plan to hit the slopes or just like to be warm on those chilly nights, top any fabulous look with this trend-forward and glamorous accessory. These are from Bloomingdale’s at Santa Monica Place ($55).
Fur the Home. Bring the runway to your foyer. Don’t limit this trend to your look. Bring a little style home with you. Look for plush faux throws to drape over your chaise, or cozy up with by the fire. We loved these ones from Nordstrom at Paseo Nuevo, in mink, leopard and chinchilla ($195).
