Well guys, Kim Kardashian is back at it and this time she's shouting out her love of faux fur from the rooftops in promoting the new Kardashian Kollection line. The reality TV diva says she's crazy about the look and thinks the "cute, warmer pieces are perfect for the colder months." We've got to hand it to her -- she's right.

Her shameless plug for publicity for the Kardashian Kollection aside, Kim is on to something with this one, y'all. Fake fur is a safe, inexpensive, and glamorous alternative to wearing real fur (and of course it's a whole lot nicer to the animals). But going out in fur is daring, and there's a fine line to walk when stepping into the look. Since KiKi is infamous for overdoing fur, we've decided to help you ladies tone it down in the name of going natural and saving money!

Here are 6 ways to look fab in faux fur without going overboard. You'd be surprised how easy and fashionable it is.

Would you ever wear faux fur? Think it's a good idea Kim K. is endorsing it?

  • Faux Fur Sweater

    Faux fur detailing along the collar (Faux Fur Sweater & Belt, $59) is the perfect little punch to take an otherwise simple sweater to the next level. For a softer look, leave your hair down, but to make a splash, opt for a top knot.

  • Neutral Faux Fur Knit Vest

    Pairing together a neutral faux vest (Faux Fur Knit Vest, $30) against a neutral top keeps the outfit from feeling too 'loud.' It's cozy, warm, and super feminine. Complete the look with dark denim pants and pumps, boots, or booties in a creamy, rich color.

  • Faux Fur Collar Coat

    You can do two things with a faux fur collar (Faux Fur Collar Aviator Jacket, $189) on a warm winter coat: Play up the look by keeping the jacket unzipped, showing off the detailing, or wearing your coat snapped closed, soaking up all the fluffy warmth for yourself. Either way, it's a total hit.

  • Faux Fur Trim

    A little bit of fur trim (Faux Fur Trim Longline Vest, $35) goes a long way. By pairing the top part of a longline vest with a bold, rich print, the faux fur looks chic and natural. Bring the look together by opting for a pastel colored top underneath that goes well with the bottom color of the vest.

  • Faux Fur Lining

    A zipper-free jacket like this one (Faux Shearling Jacket, $120) naturally shows off the fur lining in a simple, fashionable way. Wear it with a belt to make your shape really pop.

  • Faux Fur Sleeves

    Rarely do we see Kim tone down faux fur fashions, but this is a perfect example. Faux sleeves catch the eye, and by accessorizing from head to toe in black, she looks sleek, slender, and totally in style.
