Off the Rack: Faux Fur Shrugs at Target

Faux fur can go horribly wrong whether it's done on a champagne or beer budget. Target has attempted to bring this top fall trend into focus with an assortment of faux fur shrugs. I think they succeeded with the cat print shrug ($39.99) and the brown/black minx ($39.99), but failed miserably with the gray-tipped mystery-animal (a Yeti perhaps?). I love faux fur and don't want to dismiss this collection entirely as I think it depends on what else you wear and how you wear it. Fashion Toast could probably make any of these shrugs look stellar. I, on the other hand, would probably look silly. Anyone feeling the faux-fur at Target?

I just saw these this morning at my local Target and they are mighty cute... and for $40, a steal!

I will definitely be picking one up for holiday parties!

The leopard print is passable, but the brown mystery faux? Yuck!

The minx coat is pretty spot on, I'd definitely wear it!

Hmmm, not sure about these. I feel like cuter ones are out there for the $40 range.

There is an extremely nice faux animal shrug at Express at the moment. It’s lovely quality and looks adorable. My client was over the moon with hers and wore it for ages while she continued to peruse through the shop!
