    If you've never experienced the luxurious feeling that comes from wrapping up in a fur coat or collar — yes, even faux — you are MISSING out. I mean, just LOOK at Taraji here.

    TBH, recreating just about every Taraji look (IRL or on the screen) is never a bad way to go.

    And while we're on the subject, an EXCELLENT story recently came out in The New York Times called "A Black Legacy, Wrapped Up in Fur" about how the movement to disavow fur has coincided with black women's ability to invest in it. Even if you don't digitally subscribe, you should use one of your free monthly reads to devour! BTW, the writer Jasmine Sha-Ree Sanders spoke about her story on our AM2DM show! (Read the story, watch her interview, know your day was more fulfilling as a result.)

    But fur is very expensive! And some folks are morally opposed to it. So if you're on a budget and/or swear against animal products, you can invest in this $12.99 faux-fur stole instead!

    I meannnnnn, look at all that luxury!

    Promising review: "Honestly, I didn't know what to expect from such an inexpensive faux-fur stole, but WOW, I was pleasantly surprised! The fur is silky smooth and looks close to real. It is a great size. Not too large, not too small! It has an unnoticeable loop hole, so the stole can stay put instead of sliding everywhere and having to 'hold on' to it with clenched arms. I bought this for my Great Gatsby dress and it fits in perfectly with the dress. If you are considering...I say put it in your cart and checkout!! You won't be disappointed!" —rjv4EVER

    Apparently we've all been sleeping on this compliment bait — it has 600+ 5-star reviews on Amazon!

    "The faux-fur collar is very nicely made and does not look cheap. It keeps you warm and has the perfect length to wrap it around your shoulders. It looks stunning with a ball dress. The delivery was very fast as well. Would choose product and seller again. Very satisfied." —S

    "Received tons of compliments! I gotta say, I was pleasantly surprised of how great this piece turned out to be. Quality is great, feels great (even kept me warm!), and it looks great. I might just buy a few more in different colors." —Amazon Customer

    "My bridesmaids LOVED these shawls. They are well made and the 120 length is perfect to wrap around the shoulders. I planned a Pacific Northwest wedding in the middle of winter and these did the trick to keep the girls warm and were great in photos! My bridesmaids loved the shawls so much they wore them through the whole entire day/night. I would highly recommended!" —GA

    Judging from customer photos, this rich-looking gem is a popular pick for formal events, holiday parties, and Gatsby-like galas.

    "This went perfectly with my flapper dress. I ordered the raccoon color, and I can honestly say I am more than pleased with this purchase. I received so many compliments. The material is gorgeous and looks authentic. I will definitely be wearing it this winter as well!" —Sarah

    "Wore this for 1920s Harlem Nights charity event! This definitely pulled my entire outfit together as I won BEST DRESSED for the night! Must have. I ordered the 120 length." —Marsha Gwin

    "This added glam to my 1940s party dress. I had ordered a 100 CM version and wasn't happy with it, so I returned it and got this 120 CM one. The extra size and volume was exactly what I wanted. I got so many compliments, all night at the Christmas party with this on, and it kept me warm (because the house doors were open). I am so happy I bought this or I would have been quite cold and uncomfortable. This is a welcome addition to any retro-lovin' girl's wardrobe of evening wear!" —Amy Amelia

    When you're not using it to cover your shoulders at a black-tie affair, you can easily attach it to a coat collar or drape it on top for a toasty addition to your go-to outerwear.

    "Very nice and rich looking ! It's the perfect styling piece!" —kory davis

    "This is so chic and full, love this! Was a perfect accessory to my winter coats! Super soft and looks very luxe." —Kelly Augustine

    "I love this fur collar. I purchased the silver gray in the 120 size. It really spruces up my gray wool coat to a whole other level. Nice to have something so soft near my face and neck. I am making a mental note that this is a great $20 Christmas gift idea!" —S.G.

    It's ALSO great for making a variety of costumes! From a cowardly lion to Jon Snow to a princess to drag lewks to, well, a prohibition-era shindig.

    "I don't like wearing fur, but when I decided to be the lion from The Wizard of Oz for a group costume I didn't have a choice. I looked at many different faux fur scarfs but couldn't really find one I liked for a good price. When I found this one I thought it was perfect. When I received it I was surprised at how real it felt. My mom (animal expert) thinks it might still be real, but either way, it worked great for my costume. I certainly wasn't a cowardly lion wearing this." —Amazon Customer

    "Worked well for my Scar costume and in general was very warm and soft. The larger size was just right for what I needed. Great for costumes and for winter!" —AzaMae

    "Ordered for a homemade Jon Snow Costume, and it worked great! I used it to cover my shoulders on top of a old blanket cape. Nice quality!" —Jack H.

    "Lovely addition to a formal dress. I ordered the longer version and pinned it with a snowflake pin. It added warmth and made a fun costume at a princess party." —traveling queen

    "I got this in several colors for drag costumes, and I love them! They add so much versatility to my closet!" —Jared Hammer

    "I purchased this as an addition to my '70s-themed disco costume. It was the perfect length. I ordered the 120 cm in Deep Khaki. I read other reviews about the item smelling when you open the packaging but I didn’t experience that. I am very pleased with the quality and the price. Glad I purchased!" —J. Davis

    "This fur was so luxurious and beautiful. It was warm and fluffy and kept me warm at my roaring '20s party. It was definitely a nice addition to my outfit ." —Africansugar1

    Perhaps most importantly, one reviewer discovered that it looks just as good on her pug as it does on her.

    amazon.com

    "If you're wondering if you should go with the 100cm or 120cm, here's some personal insight.

    100cm: Closure is a hook and eyelet system, located on the edges of the lower portion, so the tails come together parallel, they do not cross over. Casual look, Length hits just under bust. Looks great over a jacket as a fur collar. My friends all complimented my new leather jacket when I wore the fur out, but it was the same jacket I've had for years, it just really looks like part of the jacket. Adds a little bit of rockstar to any jacket, especially leather!

    120cm: Closure system is inserting one tail through a discrete slit centered in the opposite end. The tails DO intersect/cross over. No hook or eyelets. More formal looking, length hits about navel height. Would be perfect worn as a shawl over a formal dress. Also a little bit wider on the shoulders than the 100cm." —Sarah

    Ready to be glam and cozy? Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two sizes and 16 colors).

    When it's super nippy out but your (faux) fur is keeping you toasty and looking unbothered.
