Ten of the best fur-trim coats and jackets

There’s a few things that make winter less cold, harsh and unbearable. Hot drinks is one that will always offer comfort. The open hearth is another. But if you’re out and about, nothing beats a fur-trim.

The fluffy and luxuriously soft fur, whether faux or real, give the semblance of being curled up in bed. On the right coat or jacket, it can also look decidedly stylish without being over the top.

And even better? A few of these are currently on sale.
