It's my absolute favorite winter accessory of all time: the faux fur collar!! Over the years you've seen me wear it with lots of things including a denim jacket and a wool trench coat (pic below). In today's look, I safety pinned it to a gray fringe sweater for a little extra pizzazz and warmth. In fact, instead of buying sweaters and coats with faux fur collars, I recommend buying them without, and then attaching a collar as needed/wanted for more versatility. Another trick: you can safety pin the ends of the collar together and wear it draped around your shoulders with a cocktail dress. Really, the possibilities are endless!
