Faux fur fantastic

Instead of delving into the contentious and moral issues around fur, let’s rather talk about faux fur, an altogether easier subject to swallow. It’s back in a big way this season in everything from trims to jackets and boleros.

The faux options are vast and none of them look tacky and cheap (not that you want to look like you really are wearing Bugs anyway!). Anyone can wear fur and it’s warm and cosy for winter, and soft and luxurious for bundling up in.

It’s got both romantic and bohemian influences and if you buy a lovely little faux piece, you can be sure that the trend will be back again and again in the winters to come. Fur has been around for decades and now we have so many humane options that there really is no reason not to indulge.

How lovely is this faux fur gilet from August?  You can get yours from Friends with Jenny!
