Nothing screams luxury (and warmth) quite like a beautiful fur. I think that everyone needs at least one gorgeous fur in their closet. I look forward to going back to the East Coast especially so I can wear my furs (as they tend to be way too heavy and garner lots of odd looks here in LA).

Ready to make a purchase? There are two cruelty-free options: vintage for faux.
When purchasing a vintage fur, it’s worth the money to buy it from a reputable vintage shop, who has (hopefully) sifted out any furs that are not in good condition. You should still be looking for fit (I find that often they are way too big and bulky through the shoulders), signs of rot or decay (it should feel supple when you bend the material, not brittle), and you should make sure it is free of tears, rips and shedding.
Faux furs are amazing, and you are able to find a great quality much more easily than an actual vintage fur. My recommendation here is to stick with a neutral color, as the brighter costumes look more fake and can even go towards costumey. Current favorites for faux are BSABLE (sold at Dash, Revolve Clothing, and Elyse Walker), and Rachel Zoe (Neiman Marcus, Piperlime, and Nordstrom).
