So over: Tatty fur collars
It's the time of year when summer is but a distant memory, and we've all been wearing winter clothes so long that we've forgotten what it's like to not be zipped or stuffed into something sensible, warm, and possibly waterproof.
And so we totally get why so many of you have tried to jazz up said sensible, warm, waterproof item with a bit of glamour. And of course, fur, around a hood or a collar, is an obvious choice, but it's problematic. You may think you look like Rihanna in her wolfskin coat; or Jennifer Lopez, pictured in her Roberto Cavalli number; or, better again, Keira Knightley as Anna Karenina - but, mostly, you don't.
Truth be told, unless you have spent big on the fur, by purchasing something real, or very faux-fab, you are going to look more like a backwoods trapper who has caught a few weasels and slung them round his neck on his way to check the bear pit.
