Shear Luck

Fuzzy logic: Fur may be out of your league, but faux comes at a price that won't leave you in the cold.


We dream about shearling coats on chilly days: They're as cozy as fur and appropriate for just about anywhere. Now, a fab faux one can be yours for the price of a sweater.

DKNY's A-line version is super-flattering and long enough to cover dresses ($336 at Henri Bendel). Bebe's jacket (pictured, left, $139), with a fake-fur collar, is perfect with pants. For day-to-evening chic, try Banana Republic's streamlined caramel jacket (pictured, center, $118). Or, for casual moments, try Anne Klein II's slouchy hooded one ($300 at Bloomingdale's). Too much faux? Check out Express's suede coat (pictured, right, $228).
