As the sun sets a little sooner each day and beach weather turns to soup season it's easy to feel sombre about the end of summer.
Alas, there's one major factor to feel unseasonably cheery about the fore coming chill and that is winter fashion.
We're talking every shade of denim jeans, gorgeous boots, layering and our favourite: stunning coats.
Nothing completes a winter ensemble like a chic coat, and none are more luxurious than that of the fur variety.
Of course, the idea of wearing a real fur coat isn't one we can happily condone.
Luckily faux fur options are a plenty and the quality is that of the real thing, if not better.
We're rounding up some of the most enviable faux fur options you'll want to live in through the cold months.
Ena Pelly's fashionable offerings are not only kind to our furry friends, they're kind on the environment.

Each coat is made from approximately 60 600ml recycled bottles that are so soft and fluffy you'll wish it was winter year round.
