What do Margot Tenenbaum, Cruella De Vil, Miranda Priestly, Marilyn Monroe, and Carrie Bradshaw all have in common? They wore fur, of course! And while you won't see me walkin' around in a full mink, faux fur stoles are definitely a staple in my wardrobe. Not only does (faux) fur make you look incredibly chic, it also keeps you pretty damn warm, too. Definitely a plus for Northeast dwellers.
Although it's been very mild lately, something tells me that we're going to be hit by the cold out of nowhere. If I know anything about the weather, it's that its extremely unpredictable. One day, it's clear skies and in the mid-50s, and the next day, there's snow on the ground. And since we've been spoiled with warm weather these past few days, I know that the cold is coming back with a vengeance.
As a city dweller (a walking city, at that), it's important to layer up and wear the warmest possible versions of each item I have. My hat? Wool. Gloves? Lined with fleece. And my scarf? A faux fur stole, for sure. The added plus is that you basically get to feel like royalty when you throw it on. Whether you're wearing a plain black sweater, your favorite white button up, or even a ratty tee, adding a faux fur stole basically ups your fancy game by about 100 points.
In honor of the inevitable strong winds and (hopefully) snow, here are some stoles that you'll definitely want around your neck this winter season.
