Faux fur has had a mighty comeback thanks to the fall/winter 2018 runway shows, where major designers and fashion labels eschewed real animal fur in favor of the fake stuff.
This season is filled with an assortment of faux-fur possibilities that are animal friendly, Instagram worthy and often brightly colored and designed with imaginative textures and styles.
Here are some fur-free offerings for the holiday season.
