Although I love the look and feel of genuine leather, I must say I don't feel the same way about geniune fur. I am perfectly fine wearing faux fur; I think it looks and feels just like the real thing, it's cheaper, and no animals have to die specifically to get it (unlike leather, where cows are being slaughtered for their meat anyway -- sorry to be so graphic!).
Now that fall is here and the weather is getting cooler and cooler, there's no better time to wear faux fur! For someone whose only occasion for dressing up is daily school dropoffs/pickups and a monthly PTA meeting, throwing on a faux fur accessory is the easiest way ever to look chic, even when it's paired with a tshirt and jeans. Here are my favorite ways to wear faux fur:
Lining a motorcycle jacket:
This is my favorite way to incorporate faux fur into my wardrobe. A motorcycle jacket has rugged appeal, but the faux fur also gives it an edgy kind of elegance. I also love hooded jackets with faux fur lining the hood!
Lining a vest:
A faux fur vest is ideal when it's not too cold out. Can you tell I love the mixed fur-leather look?
Around your neck, as a scarf
If you already have a leather or denim jacket, wrap a faux fur scarf around your neck. This faux fur scarf is so pretty, it really highlights the wearer's face!
All of the faux fur accessories featured above are from LightInTheBox's faux fur collection.

I know it sounds hard to believe, but only the fur is faux, not the prices :)
