Cruelty Free Winter Fashion - Angora

Angora is a soft fur sheared from the Angora rabbit. As far as I have researched, I don't think the animal is harmed in anyway. So I think it could be a valid cruelty-free winter option. I'm loving the pure white angora from Rochas collection this fall..

An angora trench is a fabulous idea.. It looks so fluffy and chic. You could add a belt so as to not look like a rabbit yourself. The puffy A line skirt is also an adorable option and would work with all the hot fall colours - mustard, burgandy, burnt orange. You can buy this collection from Neiman Marcus. The trench is $4195 and you can buy it here. The skirt is $3440 and can be bought here.

If this is definitely more than you get a month, you might want to check out the angora pieces from Victoria's Secret.

Love this very casual boyfriend cardigan from VS. Double breasted and with deep pockets, it looks like a winter prayer answered. Buy it for just $88 here. If you want to, you could compete with Candice Swanepoel in working this faux wrap Angora sweater which manages to look warm and fluffy and drop dead sexy at the same time. Buy it from here for $69.50.

If it makes you wonder how the hell you are going to maintain all that white, go in for coloured angora like with this piece by Malene Birger.

Loving the bright red of this angora blend sweater. The best colour to continue the color blocking trend in fall. Buy it for $295 from Net-A-Porter here. Ofcourse, the Victoria's secret pieces have other colour options as well for a lower cost alternative.

I also love angora accessories like this very cute beret, available in 6 different colours from Zara. My fave one is the turquoise. Buy it for $16.90 here.
