Take it from us: It's not easy being fashion-forward. Every season there are a hundred new pronouncements about what's in and what's hopelessly out -- and what you must buy immediately to avoid the wrath of the fashion gods. Sometimes it's all a girl can do to keep up with the magazine reading alone. So what can you do when you want to look chic but don't have the time or the budget to buy a whole new wardrobe twice a year? Focus on the accessories.
Snap up a few strategic items, and no one will notice that your clothes might be a teensy-weensy bit outdated. And lucky you -- we've waded through all the fashion reviews and decrees and found those must-have pieces for you. First up: fur. And not to worry, if the real stuff is something you wouldn't dream of buying -- pricey tag or not -- fake fur is on the "it list," too.
