Fashion Picks : Faux Fur

Fur was once restricted to the
lucky few who could afford Haute Couture, but now, with Autumn Winter catwalks
flush with fur, there seems to be an option from every retailer, from Haute to
High Street. The world trade is now worth over $15 billion; a flourishing
global enterprise and you can buy into it whether its via the £69.99 ‘lapin’
Zara coat, or a £90,000 Prada coat. However, with faux fur now able to pass for
the real thing, (and a fraction of the price) I’ll be choosing faux fur this
winter to protect me from the freezing temperatures to come! Here are my top
picks of fabulous faux fur pieces on the high street right now.
1. I.T Faux Fur Clutch, B+AB
For an unexpected take on the faux fur trend this winter, this clutch is a quirky update on a simple silhouette, and is a super easy way to add some fur into your AW13 wardrobe. Plus, at £50, it’s a bargain! 
2. Multi Patch Fur Snood, Topshop
Style this topshop snood with your trench coat and leather pants for an instant style update. The tri-colour effect means you can team with with an array of neutral tones.
3. Farrow Over-Knee Boots, DUO
These elegant boots are a winner when it comes to height : comfort ratio – with a tread sole and block heel, you can wear them all day – trust me, I do pretty much every day! (See Instagram evidence below!)
