The Time To Buy A Faux Fur Coat Is Now: 20 Really Good Ones On Sale
You guys, I did something crazy last week. Like, Britney Spears circa 2007 crazy (love you, Brit Brit). I bought this Topshop 'Leah' Faux Fur Coat ($109.99, down from $170) at the Nordstrom clearance sale. How could I not?! I know there's only a month left of winter (although it feels like the sun will never shine again), but this is the faux fur coat of my dreams! It has everything I was looking for: a neck-covering collar, mink color and hem just below the waist. I couldn't pass it up, especially at a discount. This led me to do an Interweb search for more faux fur coats on sale. If this one was still in stock AND marked down, there had to be more really good ones out there. Turns out, there's at least 20 that are worth your time looking through. Click the slideshow to see what we found.

Faux Fur Sweatshirts Are What You’ll Need When The Polar Vortex Comes Back
With the polar vortex already on its way again, it's time to start dressing for it. The first thing you should throw on? A faux fur sweatshirt. The combination of cotton jersey (or a sweater knit) and fur might sound a bit absurd but it's actually a genius style. When we saw Olivia Palermo rock a Club Monaco version last year, and noticed that a ton of choices were available for every budget, faux (or even real) fur sweatshirts are a hot commodity. Plus, what's comfier and warmer than your favorite crewneck sweatshirt and fur coat? When you have a fashion hybrid of both. Check out our slideshow of this particular sweatshirt (and a few sweaters as well) to get yours now before the winter climes kick in. [Photo: Damsel in Dior]
The Faux Fur Coat Selection Right Now Is Bomb–And Everything’s Under $200
Not going to lie, I never felt the need for a faux fur coat until last year. That Polar Vortex did a number on me. You too? Okay good, because the selection of faux fur coats and jackets right now is pretty epic. The best part isn't even that they look more comfortable than your best blanket, it's that there are tons of styles under $200. A steal! Now that you're convinced check out our picks in the slideshow. It's starting to get chilly outside...

Who Needs A Fur Coat When You Can Wear A Fur Sweatshirt?
When we spotted Olivia Palermo in a faux fur sweatshirt, it seemed like the perfect addition to our winter weather layers. And it turns out a slew of other designers agree. Since Palermo, we've noticed a number of other fur (and faux) sweatshirts in all sorts of different styles, from leopard print to black and white. Is this a new take on the graphic sweatshirt? Not exactly. Sure, mixed media sweatshirts with leather accents and hologram details ruled the runways for Fall 2013, but this fur trend is just a cozy and warm addition to your sporty-turned-chic-apparel. Check out our slideshow to shop your favorite fur sweatshirt now.

What A Mess: Kesha And Fergie Show How Not To Wear Feathers And Fur
What They Did Wrong: When it comes to traveling in style, Ke$ha and Fergie take it a little too far (are you listening, Lady Gaga?). Lace up boots, faux fur vests, cross jewelry, fishnet tights, AND feathers? Sometimes, too much of a good thing really is a bad thing. What They Should Have Done: Both pop stars try to squeeze a bunch of winter trends into 1 single outfit. They should pick one trend and fill the rest of their look with neutral basics. Instead of a graphic tee, Fergie should have done a dark cardigan. And if Ke$ha really wants to wear a feather, she should have gotten a headband - not a Big Bird-esque coat: Check out more celebrity style.

Coming To A Fur Vest Near You: The Louisiana Swamp Rat?
There is and always has been a great debate over fur. PETA and rabid animal-lovers feel that real fur is wrong, and have been known to use a paint can or two to get their point across. On the other side, you have the Victoria Beckhams and Olsen twins of the world who love fur. The Telegraph is now reporting a resolution to the great debate: Louisiana swamp rats (not pictured above) which are "culled legally to protect marshland." Designer Cree McGree is arguing that since 400,000 of them go to waste every year, using their fur is pretty much guilt-free (albeit pretty gross). So, what do you think, should the rats not die in vain? What will PETA say? And most importantly, would you wear a swamp rat vest? Leave comments here.

Winter Accessories Under $150: Fingerless Gloves, Infinity Scarves, And Faux Fur Galore
Today on Better.tv, we’re showing off our favorite winter accessories trends: fingerless gloves, infinity scarves, and the now-ubiquitous faux fur. (Hi Rachel Zoe!) Best of all: all the items you see here are under $150. Also: Find even more faux fur, infinity scarves and fingerless gloves in our hand-picked shopping guides. Faux Fur Faux fur is showing up on everything from vests to hats to shoes this season. We love the luxurious look of this faux mink wrap ($40 – and from Target!) for pairing with holiday party dresses or even jeans and a tee – it’s more versatile than you’d think. This vest ($150) from Stefani Greenfield’s stellar HSN line is also a cold-weather workhorse. If you’d prefer your faux fur in small doses, try a fluffy hat ($15), or these cool socks ($39) that can freshen up the look of your boots with the fur cuff that peeks out the top. Infinity Scarves This of-the-moment scarf shape makes getting that effortlessly chic loop totally simple – just throw it over your head. Echo’s chunky single-loop scarf ($45) is the simplest – it sits around your neck like a cowl-y collar. Wear Roxy’s Glow Infinity Scarf ($28) or Echo’s triangle pattern scarf ($35) the same way, or double-loop them for a cozier fit. Fingerless Gloves Since we’re all tied to our Smartphones these days, fingerless gloves make communicating on the go a breeze: fingers are free to type and text. Free People’s Doubs gloves ($28) have adorable metal buttons, and Mossimo for Target’s pair ($11) is extra long for extra warmth.
Go Luxurious (On The Cheap) With Curations For HSN
Last night we checked out Curations with Stefani Greenfield (that's her, above, pointing out the butterfly logo on her faux fur vest, which also adorns the rest of the line). Greenfield, who co-founded the stylish Scoop stores, also makes a super-luxe and completely affordable line for HSN, which she'll be promoting on air, throughout the day and night, on November 11. This striped chevron faux fur jacket will be coming out later this month, but luckily, the equally incredible vest version is available now. The faux fur on this tie collar (which also comes in a dark plum) looked and felt lovely...I know what my mom's getting for Christmas. Nothing quite says "weekend away" like an overnight bag done up in - you guessed it - more luxurious faux fur. From the great cuff bracelets to statement necklaces to animal-print scarves, the accessories were on point. Take a cue from Stefani Greenfield's playbook and keep up the fun, luxe look with the best necklaces, bracelets, and faux fur.
Project Runway: Going Around the World Looks Pretty Boring
Based on their favorite places around the world, the designers had to each create a look inspired by their chosen locales. Althea picked a safe St. Tropez shorts look, while Logan designed a cute, if poorly accessorized, young Hollywood look. Along with Logan, Christopher and Nicolas (Sante Fe and Greece, respectively) were chastised for being too safe. It was a shock, though, that Christopher got to stay after his third week in the bottom two. Bye, Nic. Gordana wowed guest judge Milla Jovovich with the flashy necklace on her Park Ave. dress, as did Carol Hannah's Palm Beach twisted sundress. But it was Irina's back-to-the-80s Aspen ski lodge faux fur vest and faux ski pants that got the judges panel panting this snoozy week. I thought the oversized cowl neck sweater was cute, but the look all together was a little ironic. Irina was on point, though: faux fur is hot for fall and winter. Just ask Rachel Zoe. The one thing to watch out for is looking too much like an extra from Where the Wild Things Are. To glam it up, I liked the Gryphon "Rocker" beaded collar faux fur vest. For something a little different, the Juicy Couture Faux Fur Vest is lighter-colored and fluffier, but just as adorable. And the cropped length on each is perfect for sipping hot toddies at the lodge. Shop for more of the best faux fur, and then pair it off with black jeans and button-down shirt for a trendy but not over-the-top look.

How To Wear A Faux Fur Vest
Looking around, it seems as if the faux fur vest is shaping up to be this fall and winter's [cruelty-free] must have item. We're all for this ultra-glam style, as it's an easy way to jazz up your daily duds. However, it's important to keep in mind when donning fake fur that you are not a famous female rapper, or heir to some European throne. Here's how to wear a faux fur vest in the real world, and wear it well. First things first. Whether it's fake or the real deal, the furry look catches attention, so start by dressing down your vest with a pair of flattering, skinny jeans in a dark wash. Next, wear a long sleeved top in black to offset the lighter colored fuzz. We'd wear flat boots rather than heels, but for a hint of embellishment try a harness style. Finally, while you don't want to over-bling it, a long and delicate gold necklace will perfectly complete your look. A Common Thread Faux Fur Vest, $294 J. Brand Marta Skinny Jeans, $196 Splendid Basic Tee, $48 Cynthia Vincent Watson Tall Flat Riding Boots, $395 Gorjana Willow Necklace, $84 For more in the way of winter fashion, check out our picks for the best in faux fur, hats, and gloves.
