It's getting a bit nippy these days isn't it. I was thinking I might break out a fur stole over the next few weeks for some alternative neck candy. I have a couple but the ones which have caught my eye are the ones which are a little bit more fun than the regular beige, brown, grey natural toned ones. I'm liking the ones on the street stylers.

Aren't they fun and fabulous? So it wasn't surprising when this lovely faux fur number jumped right out at me in good old Toppers the other day when I was passing through.
What a statement piece for £32! I need this like I need a hole in my head but then again what does need have to do with anything when it's as fab as this? I'm thinking this one through but only because ....
I also spotted this one online! Navy and khaki! What a delicious combination! But it looks like it might come down to my toes! :(
And it's not just Toppers who are giving good game with the old furry stuff, Reiss have some lovely numbers - a little more pricey but I reckon you get what you pay for :
The colour combination is more subtle here but still looks contemporary with the burgundy stripe detailing. Very wearable and not too in your face for those who don't like to shout "I'm HERE!!"
But for street sass, you need this one with the electric cobalt blue stripe :
And navy and black is one of my favourite combinations which Ted Baker have pulled off beautifully. I can see this slotting in really well against my extensive collection of navy, black and grey jumpers I have.
Charlotte Simone does some beautiful ones and this blue and white faux fur stripe is really eye catching (thank you Chloe for alerting me to this beauty). If you want to see more colour combinations, have a look on the actual website but make sure you know that you are clicking on the faux fur as opposed to the real fur options!
But let's bring the prices back down again to my level ;o) And this one is really striking from River Island. It says it's lilac but it looks very grey to me with only just the merest hint of lilac. The colour combination is lovely.
And look how sharp this green is against the black. Just makes it so much more modern doesn't it?
And you can make a statement from a single block colour scarf if the contrasting stripes are too much. This is the really subtle way to do it but sit this teal on a grey or navy coat - beautiful! Same applies to this lovely burgundy Jigsaw one found here.
But I have to end on this one as I love the colours on this. From Helen Moore's Mod Collection.
What do you think? A bit too much? The fur tippet is enough really isn't it?
