I didn’t expect to embrace the faux fur fashions trend that’s warming store shelves this season. But I surprised myself when I tried on a faux fur infinity scarf last week. The fabric was soft and luxurious. I could imagine wearing this on my cold commute and feeling like I was getting a warm hug around my neck the whole time. And the realistically elegant faux made me feel like Jackie O. or Samantha Parkington. So here’s a round up of some classic cold-weather outerwear favorites updated with fur trimmings.
Faux Fur Fashions: Accessories
Like me, you might be surprised at the very real prices on these faux items. I adore the swinging, mid-century shape of the coats from London fashion newcomer Shrimps (pictured above in pink) but that’s a lot of money to drop on a trend. Accessorizing with faux is a little easier on the wallet and just as cozy as a full faux coat.

Can we talk about just how much I love these pieces? Those gloves! That headband! Looking at them makes me want to go for a walk on a snowy city street lined in white Christmas lights. For a bit of glam, pair either of these with a simple wool coat for the perfect touch of fur.
For an even more cost effective way to embrace faux, the fabric store has a selection of fur fabrics and I’m eager to find some ways to DIY faux fur fashions this fall. Will you incorporate faux fur into your outerwear somehow this season?
