Cozy Up to Charlotte Simone Fur Scarves and Hoods

Fluffy fun from a British It girl

Some like it hot. And by “it,” we mean the outfits and accessories one wears when it’s colder out than the heart of a vindictive yeti.

Raise temps with Charlotte Simone, a fledgling line of fur, faux fur, and knit scarves from UK designer and rising It girl Charlotte Beecham.

The idea for a trimmed hood/scarf combo first came to Beecham as a student at NYU and in Paris. Now two years later (she’s only 24), her fluffy wares are regularly spotted around the necks of Rita Ora, Olivia Palermo, and Alexa Chung.

Our favorite pieces are loud, oversize cuffs (think instant fur lapels) and shrugs with Technicolor tufts. Choose the latter in stripes (black and white or burgundy raccoon) or solid black with a single electric blue, magenta, or orange fox tip. Wear one double looped for extra protection in the snow, then playfully sling it over a bare shoulder once you’re inside the party.

Beecham’s OG hoods and long scarves with fur patches don’t command as much attention off the bat, but don’t knock them — luxurious practicality is never a terrible idea. And that reminds us: Most pieces are also available in high-end faux fur, which is easier on animals and your wallet.

And anything but abominable.

Available at charlottesimone.com, $254-$488.
