The other morning while I was making my way to the subway station, I passed a mom, who, if she didn't have a child in tow, looked a lot like me. We both were wearing thick, army green coats and Hunter boots, and had oversized bags weighing our shoulders down. However, I looked disheveled as hell in the freezing, rainy weather, and she looked oddly stylish. I couldn't put my finger on what, despite our twinsies outfits, made her look like a J.Crew ad and me look like I just crawled out of a dumpster. Then, upon further inappropriate staring, I caught it. She was wearing a fur scarf.
A fur scarf! If you haven't yet gotten on board, I highly advise you to, as I have a strong feeling they're about to be all the rage. Mark my words: They'll be this winter's trapper hat. Check out Pippa Middleton on her way to work the other morning. The deep brown fur scarf adds a whole new level of sophistication to the already sophisticated lady's look.
Now, where to buy these cozy, stylish things?
After trolling around the Internet for a little while, I found a few worth checking out. Hurry up and look -- it's not too late to add it to your Christmas or Hanukkah list.
Karl Lagerfeld Faux Fur Pocket Scarf, Macy's, $49.99. This one may be a little intense for those just venturing timidly into the fur scarf world, but for those a little more bold, it's fantastic. And the pocket makes it delightfully different.
Faux Fur Neck Warmer Wrap Scarf, Amazon, $24.95. I really like this one. This is actually quite similar to the one Cool Mom was wearing the other day. At under $25, I may have to purchase.
Fur and Knit Loop Scarf, Juicy Couture, $88. One of our stylish editors here at The Stir actually pointed this scarf out to me during an email string about, well, scarves. It's amazing. I hate to be a copycat, but I'm totally coveting, too, now.
Preston and York Faux Fur Scarf, Dillard's, $36. Sort of reminiscent of Pippa's. And sort of old Hollywood, no? Super cute.
KYI KYI Fox Fur Lace Lined Scarf, Bluefly, $228. Even though I'm anti-real fur -- and I'm anti-$228 scarves -- this is gorgeous. I love the color, I love the style, and I love the length. There's gotta be a faux version of this somewhere out there, and dagnabbit, I shall find her.
Are you willing to get on the fur scarf train?
