Wool scarves will always play a leading role in any solid fall wardrobe, but when it comes to elegant, statement-making accessories, we’re all about the stole. Sure, the original stole had its moment several decades ago (ahem, Marilyn Monroe), but the revived trend looks nothing like what your grandma used to wear. Instead, this season the the furry piece comes chunky and oversize and in vibrant, multicolor prints.
Designer brands like Marc Jacobs and Lanvin are bringing back the piece for Fall 2015, but if you don’t want to cash out on a real-fur stole (or if you’re ethically opposed), there are plenty of faux options that look every bit as bold as the real thing.
Whether you want to wear one cape-style on a night out or sling one over your shoulder with jeans and a sweater, shop these 12 faux-fur stoles we’ve been eyeing this season.
