We just can’t help it — we’re officially falling for earmuffs (and not the improvised version a la Vince Vaughn in Old School)! This fall and winter, a little faux fur (trend alert!) completely amps up the chic factor, eliminating thoughts of goofy headgear from the days of early childhood (don’t act like you didn’t rock a few animal-shaped pairs). Plus, there’s no need to worry about messing up your ‘do or sweating under an itchy knit hat. And for the technology inclined: some pairs even connect to your iPod so you can blast the The Shins — or Taylor Swift — in warm and fuzzy solitude. Convinced? Try a pair of these foxy ‘muffs from our slideshow and let the compliments roll in.
