In the world of fashion, we almost always opt for the real deal. Except when it comes to fur, and then...well, we just have to fake it. But the best thing about a hot trend like faux fur is how so many designers and brands compete to create the very best options out there. And this season, that can certainly be applied to the amazing array of faux fur vests, jackets, and coats up for grabs. The quality of so many of these new animal-friendly styles is pretty remarkable...that's right, no more kooky coverups that look like they escaped from Sesame Street. We're talking silky-plush, mink-like finishes, nubby shearling imposters, and insanely luxe fox impersonators. In fact, with so much faux fur to go around this fall, we decided to make your shopping list extra easy by tallying up only our favorite fakers. And starting at just $170, you can have that glamorous fur moment without all the guilt.
