As the holiday season gradually creeps up on us and the chillier weather has us ready to embrace cozier additions to our wardrobe, it has become apparent that faux fur details are more than just last year's biggest fad. Fur trim is still hot for this upcoming winter season, and its adding some seasonal flair to some of our favorite comfy, cold-busting coats. Fur trim is surprisingly versatile, able to add either a sense of sportiness or even glamour to modernize any classic jacket style. 

You'll never catch a chill as long as you're wrapped up in something full and soft like this Juicy Couture puffer coat, or go for something more boyfriend-chic like this Marc Jacobs military-inspired bomber jacket. To show off your feminine shape through all the chilly-weather bulk, this   Joyce Coat by BB Dakota flairs out at the waist for a skirted look, and this belted Lamarr Coat, also by BB Dakota, can top off any outfit by providing an extra dose of drama with its faux fur collar.

Infinity scarves seem to be the accessory of the moment. I love the look, but I'm not really into scarves that have excessive decoration on them. So unadorned infinity scarves are on my shopping list for winter. Especially with something that's constantly going to be around my neck, I just want to keep it simple. There are many options and the look of a cowl that can be tossed over a tee or plain crewneck cashmere sweater are oh so appealing. Infinity scarves come in many lengths and fabrics. My favorites are the soft jersey and cashmere styles. With the swathe of fabric flowing around my neck, it's best not to have anything with a scratchy texture. Cashmere offers warmth and the cotton jersey tee fabric are as soft as buttah! 

Donna Karan's long and flowing infinity scarf has a generous cowl and adds a sense of drama with it's oversized flowing design. ($695 at Saks). At an affordable price that won't break your winter shopping budget - the neon lime green chunky can be worn around the neck and pulled overhead as a hood. ($29 at Spiegel). Lastly, Splendid's Foil Heather Rugby-Stripe Cotton Infinity Scarf adds a sport touch to a basic tee. ($54 at Bloomingdales)
