No, we aren't paying homage to a band with a cool name - psychedelic fur is actually a chic fashion trend we're super excited to share with you. While faux fur vests in neutral, wardrobe-friendly colors emerge at this time of year without fail, 2011 finds us in the throes of bolder furs, too.
Yow! If you're looking for a way to make a memorable first impression, this ought to do it. Slip into the amazing INC International Concepts Chubby Jacket
($99.99) and see just how far a little red will take you. It's a powerful color that really commands attention, so beware, wallflowers. Otherwise, the sky is the limit - we think it looks great with all black or over a chic patterned dress.
Here's a fun way to liven up your winter basics! This ASOS Faux Fur Long Cuff
($31.43) is at once playful and luxurious, awash in a decadent shade of deep pink. The clip-on design makes it a cinch to wear, and you'll be amazed at what a warm, cozy difference they make.
Retire your basic little black clutch for the season (or at least for a night or two) in favor of this Topshop Faux Fur Clutch Bag
($70). A lavish coat of magenta lends it a regal quality, but it would look just as chic with a leather jacket, jeans and boots as with an elegant evening dress. It's surprisingly versatile!
Not merely electric, bold furs can also be quite sophisticated. This Victoria's Secret Faux Fur Stole
($68) is a great example of vibrant fur at its most elegant. Go brazen in teal, sexy in berry or channel your inner princess with royal purple.
Infuse your winter wardrobe with maximum style and color with this amazing snood by Ana Konder for ASOS
($78.57). It's hard to imagine anything more attention-grabbing than this! You'll love how it protects your hair in blustery conditions while adding a thick, warm layer to keep you ultra-warm on the most frigid days.
Work the look: There's nothing to fear here, because even the most audacious hues can be pulled off discreetly - think vibrant clutches or brazen scarves that add a much-needed pop to low-key fall ensembles, without being crazily ostentatious. Consider it a smart accessory that works overtime to liven up your look!
