This season with an array of fluorescent yellows and soft pinks, faux, for once, is fated to look fake. And I like the honesty of it. Recently my dad asked for my Christmas links (welcome to the 21st century), and I realized almost every other link was faux fur. Clearly this is excessive. But for every fashion minion who takes a knee and prays to the style gods (or Santa) for faux fur under her tree, there’s an elf on a budget. So, to help those poor elves I rounded up the five best faux furs under $70.
