Meet our furry FOFriend! We spotted this woman in New York City looking quite cool…er…warm with her aviator hat and blazer decked in fur. But what do you think? Is her outfit fur better or fur worse? Answer in the comments below plus see what our style experts think.
Glenyse Thompson: Fur better, for keeping her warm. Fur worse, because the sleeves are too short. I would take that jacket to the tailor and convert it to a vest (keep the sleeves and have them converted into a clutch!). Then, lose the hunter hat. There are chic-er alternatives out there that are just as warm and stylish.

Karen C. Hughes: The fur is fun but styled all wrong. What bothers me more than the fur, though, are the leopard leggings paired with a t-shirt. It seems like she just pulled whatever out of the closet and put it on. I’d have to say this look is fur worse.
Sherrie Mathieson: I might say this cute FOF has all she needs with her nice figure and great smile. Her warm fur hat, scarf and biker boots are stylishly funky. But it takes all her lovely naturalness to offset the cheap look of the rabbit fur jacket, animal print jeggings, and the vintage bag.
Shelley Zurek: This woman has two great things going for her–she hardly looks a day over 25 and her boots are awesome. The rest of the outfit…umm…not so much.

Deborah Boland and Jojami Tyler (The Glam Gals): Fur-get this look! Call it haute hoser but we think this wacky looking thrift store combo is a mixed up mess. It’s much too teenaged for a grown-up gal. If she’s going for an eclectic look, we’d suggest an oversized leather jacket, bigger boho-style purse and a less bulky scarf to make her look cool in a more mature and tasteful way.

Lovey Dash: Her outfit is furry good. It looks like she is cold so where are her gloves? Speaking of which, I hope they are on the long side because her jacket sleeves look short. But all in all, not bad. The look is a bit cluttered from the chest up, but hey, I lived in New York and a girl must do what a girl must do to stay toasty. I’m letting her slide.
