Cosy Up to the Fuzzy Sweater Trend

Blame it on our childhood petting zoo obsession, but we have a soft spot for fuzzy sweaters. They're warm, adaptable, and add a fun, textural component to any outfit, in other words: they're irresistible. Read on to see how Lily Collins, Katy Perry, and more are working the trend. 

Katy Perry


Palace Lee,

Out and about in London, the “Roar” singer riffed on her Temperley London knit’s youthful vibe with a schoolgirl look that included a Chanel backpack, and a checkered mini skirt and matching blazer by Marni.

Dining out in Beverly Hills last week, the actress paired her Topshop V-Neck Jumpsuit ($80) with a Minkpink Fashion Faux Fur Long Coat ($105) for a dramatic monochrome look that she punched up another notch with a red lip and matching clutch. 

Ashley Madekwe


Half the fun of this trend is experimenting with different textures. We love how the actress/Ring My Bell blogger contrasted the sleek shine of a patent leather skirt with the downy fuzz of an Angora Crop Jumper ($136), both by Topshop. Also on Madekwe: a Balenciaga jacket, Alexander McQueen clutch, and Saint Laurent shoes. 

Fearne Cotton



Spotted at the BBC Radio One studios in London, Fearne Cotton channeled early '90s Seattle in a grunge-chic ensemble that included a floral print Drop Waist Dress ($62) from her line, a Topshop cardigan, Alexander McQueen boots, and a Mulberry bag.


Lauren Conrad



The newly-engaged Conrad kept it casual at LAX in a classic skinny jean/sweater combo which she paired with a Chanel Jumbo Weekend tote bag, Emmanuelle Khan sunglasses, and LC Lauren Conrad ankle boots ($60).

For F/W 13, designer Thornton Bregazzi had the fashion flock drooling over this sweater/pencil skirt combo that toed the line between structured minimalism and woolly eccentricity.

The designer sent models down his F/W 13 runway in understated, tonal looks that reminded us that this trend has a grown-up side.

This deep (deep) v-neck from the F/W 13 collection draws out the fuzzy sweater’s latent sex appeal.

If you’re keen to play both naughty and nice, toughen up a powder blue cowl neck with accessories spiked with studs and metal hardware.

Keep that warm fuzzy feeling going strong with a skirt that also features a tactile fabric, or even feathers.
