It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a woman in the depths of winter a must be in want of weather-appropriate accessories…
A few years ago I purchased my very first faux fur friend (excluding Spot the dog and Marvin the monkey I had as a child…). It was from Topshop. I say ‘it’ when actually they were a matching two-piece – a hat and scarf to be precise – that I wore to death, and still have to this day. A deep mauve, said twinset came practically everywhere with me. Beside from the fact that they made me feel like a character from a Russian spy film, they were also the warmest, and cosiest of companions.
Now, circa 2016, and fur is still just as much on my radar now as it was then. There’s something undeniably glamorous, a touch of old Hollywood even, about throwing on your fur scarf and sunglasses that makes it a look that will be forever timeless. A quick-fix to dress up your coats and boots (à la moi), or add a touch of Marilyn to your festive outfits by pairing your faux fur with a dress or midi skirt.
