SheFinds Asks: Do you wear fur?

imageThe Response: The majority of readers are anti-fur. 

Our Take: Long has the great fur debate raged on. On the one side, we have famed Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who (not surprisingly) is willing to sacrifice a fox or minx here and there in the name of a beautiful jacket. And, it must be said: why shouldn't she? Ms. Wintour is the symbol of all things fashionable, and fur — with its unique texture and striking glamour — falls neatly into the fashion canon.

On the other side we have animal rights activists, who argue that no living creature should be killed in the name of superfluous vanity. So, where, as a consumer, do you draw the line between couture, and just plain cruelty? Should you stop wearing all products made from an animal? Are you banished to pleather and nylon for all eternity? Some animal lovers would say yes. After all, curtailing your shopping habits seems like a small price to pay to save the life of a living creature.

Fashion lovers — myself included — might object to such strict limitations. And so, a compromise: leather yes; fur no. With so many fabulous fur imitations on the market, why bother? You don't have to sacrifice the snow-bunny look of winter in order to forgo fur. Nor do you have to lower the bar on quality — designers like Stella McCartney are pumping out lots of beautiful and stylish options for the animal loving fashionists among us. If you're specifically looking for fur-alternatives, the Web site Fabulous Furs offers a variety of faux fur options that look just like the real thing. This ivory cardigan with faux rabbit fur trim goes for $119.
