TTFF (6): On the wild side...

Top Trends: Fall Fashion (Post #6)

I'm sure you've noticed by now that faux fur is back in full force- a bold statement with a (literally) soft feel that I've fallen hard for- I've added three pieces to my wardrobe this fall. Maybe it's because of all the Rachel Zoe Project I've been watching, I'm not sure. Anyways, if you have ever watched you will know that fur pieces are a Rachel thing: they add instant glam to an outfit (if styled right). And it's not just one furry animal that's popular to imitate: we have a variety of rich, thick faux pieces:

The first two jackets are actually pulled from Rachel Zoe's picks on Piperlime:

While a vest is perfect for laying in the milder weather of fall, a faux fur coat will sure be cozy and warm once the winter breezes blow.

Tiffany (Just Another Shopaholic) comments on how to wear a fur vest.

Designers have even incorporated faux fur or shearling trim along the hoods of jackets or along the cuffs of shoes: it dresses up an item, adds a little texture.

Animal prints add a bit of pop or boldness to an outfit, but the key is not to overindugle: little bits here and there to accessorize a look rather than hijack it with spots and stripes.

Those shoes are amazing.

I have a question. I received a faux fur scarf in a gift bag from Winners, and I have no frickin' clue how to wear it without looking pretentious.

You can see a photo of it here:

Any suggestions?

I'm absolutely addicted to animal print and faux fur so of course I'm loving that this stuff never really goes away, it just kinda comes back in waves.
