Out with the fur and in with the faux! Whether you reside where the weather is warm all year round or where the weather fluctuates, your favorite brands carry leather, silk, fur, and more for your luxury pleasures. Fur is worn by celebrities, royals, and those who enjoy the material of such. Although the material may complete your look making it instagram-worthy, some fail to realize that wearing skin or fur from an animal does in fact come with a price.
The only way to obtain such material to be sold for fashion is sickening practices that we will not mention, but do keep in mind they are immensely cruel. As the years pass our favorite brands have been adding faux to their lines to appeal to the customers who refuse to purchase real skin and fur. Celebrities that have vouched to never purchase or wear furs again consist of P!nk, Eva Mendes, Pamela Anderson, Wendy Williams, Jhene Aiko, and many more. You too can have high fashion with zero cruelty.
