FUR is officially here to stay for Fall 2014

We’re only halfway through fashion week in NYC and I already know that we’re in for yet another (and possibly more) fur-filled fall and winter for 2014.  Beginning in the F/W runway shows last February, we started seeing more fur than usual and in many new forms on the runways.  The fact that it feel like it’s had an even bigger presence in these latest Fall 2014 shows somewhat surprises me.  With all of the controversy and negativity swirling around about the fur industry, I would’ve thought that the fashion world had caught onto the trend a little more by now.  It seems like there was a season or two a few years ago where using real fur was so frowned upon, however, things now seem to have returned to their oblivious state regarding the cruel practices on our furry friends.  Now don’t get me wrong, I do think that real fur is beautiful and functional, but faux fur is truly the way to go if fur is something you can’t live without.  Nowadays, faux fur is just about as soft and warm as the real thing and we don’t have to feel guilty for the poor animal it came from while wearing it.  Even though my stance on the subject is pretty strictly against using the real thing, I can’t help but want to touch and feel the latest fur garments and accessories that I’ve seen on the runways over the past few days.  Take a look for yourself below at some of the real and faux furs straight from the New York runways that I thought were quite beautiful and undoubtedly a sign of what’s to come for this fall.
