While full-on fur coats, of both the real and faux variety, were prominent from New York to Paris, the most interesting pieces were those that featured touches of fur — if you're going to wear sandals in the winter, they might as well be dotted with fur, right? Whether it be fur sleeves or a fur clutch, many of Fall 2011's most memorable looks used fur as a means of embellishing.
