Maybe it’s the frigid temps, or maybe it’s my never-ending quest to be more like Kate Moss, but lately I’ve been lusting after all things (mostly faux) fur. And it looks like I’m not the only one. From supermodel Karlie Kloss to British reality star Millie Mackintosh, it seems everyone is cozying up to fur this winter, including the buyers at my favorite e-commerce sites (see: ASOS and Shopbop).

This trend is so easy to pull off, so long as you stick to a less-is-more attitude with the rest of your outfit. Throw an oversized faux fur jacket over a graphic tee, distressed jeans and Converse sneakers for a casual weekend look, or keep warm while out Christmas shopping in a chunky grey knit and faux fur trimmed motorcycle jacket. Take a less posh approach to leather leggings and a slouchy white tee by adding a faux fur coat and black Chelsea boots (see black and white pic above). Although it’s popular now, fur, including faux, never goes out of style, so invest in a piece you really love and carry it over from year to year.
