the faux fur factor

Faux fur coats have a way of wiggling their way into my mind every autumn without fail. They've got that Penny-Lane-meets-Margot-Tenenbaum vibe that manages to fall both within the spectrum of bohemian-rock-groupie and Upper-East-Side-recluse {how many other pieces of attire can claim such a dual personality?}; thus, seeing a perfect black-and-white piece strut down the runway during the February debut of the H&M Paris Fashion Week Autumn / Winter 2013 Collection paired with over-the-knee boots and a très adorbs baker boy hat? No question about it...made me swoon. The swing silhouette, the voluminous lapels...it's the type of outerwear that dreams are made of; and I've found 6 pretty pieces for your craving pleasure:

faux 2
ONE: Unreal Fur fire & ice {$265.00} TWO: Unreal Fur wanderlust in slate {$278.00} THREE: alice + olivia annistyn {$367.00} FOUR: Unreal Fur furry floss in chocolate {$235.00} FIVE: Unreal Fur furry floss in black {$235.00} SIX: Topshop knitted tassel coat {$138.00}

Unreal Fur has an amazing selection of furry frippery, but my absolute favorite is the Wanderlust Faux Fur Coat for its shaggy aesthetic and collarless neckline - both of which make it look like a piece snagged straight from the streets of Greenwich Village circa 1960. The exaggerated lapels of alice + olivia's Annistyn Faux Fur Jacket add an incredibly posh, elegant touch - pair it with a statement necklace to give your daily denim the debutante treatment. Unreal Fur's Furry Floss Faux Fur Jacket, in either Chocolate or Black {I'm coveting both}, features one of the most perfect silhouettes {and would look positively fab with a sleek pair of suede over the knee boots}.

The shaggy, mixed fabric tassel detailing of Topshop's Knitted Tassel Coat give it a boho glam vibe that will couple gorgeously with the caramel and peanut hues of fall {I'd also love to see it paired with one of the floppy fedoras I featured last week}. And if you're a fan of faux but can't settle on a color, you'll dig Unreal Fur's Fire & Ice Faux Fur Jacket. The cream-to-black two-tone is edgy yet classic {when is black and white not?}.

What a cool jacket! I'd want a darker one because it wouldn't be white long ..if I had it.

Great look!
