There's no arguing that there's so much to be excited about when it comes to fall fashion (ahem, relaxed denim, platform boots, and oversize bags). And while there's an overwhelming amount of great trends that came off the fall/winter 2022 runways, I'd be lying if I didn't say that the outerwear was where it was at. From leather coats to robe coats to bomber jackets, there was no shortage of noteworthy trends that are guaranteed to find their way into the fashion sphere this fall. But if I'm being honest, there's only one style that stole my heart this season: fuzzy collared coats. 

I know what you're thinking: "Furry coats? Girl, how is that exciting?" I'll admit that fur always makes a minor comeback every fall, but this season, we saw designers embrace all the fuzzy things in a fun way. Most notably, what made the coats feel fresh was that they focused on long-lapel collars with fur trim, shaggy sleeves, and mixed materials to create intricate details. Every iteration was about using fur trimmings to elevate the coat—see Proenza Schouler's black wool coat with an oversize fuzzy white lapel or Stella McCartney's long black leather coat adorned with contrasting brown shearling. 

It's not necessarily about dripping in faux fur, though. Instead, it's about that surprising element where the fur doesn't overpower the coat but makes it a powerful statement piece. This intricate balance makes this outerwear trend, in my mind, one of the best of the season. But if you're not sold yet, you'll want to keep scrolling, as I've rounded up examples of the fuzzy fold-over collar trend on the runway, along with examples of how the fashion set is already wearing this trend.

Luckily for you, I've shopped out some of the best furry coats in case you find you're overcome with warm and fuzzy feelings for this outerwear trend too.

Love when a coat taps into two major fall trends. 

I can guarantee this coat will sell out quickly. 

Lean into the animal-print aesthetic fully. 

The faux-fur collar on this trench coat is detachable so you can wear it multiple ways. 

I'm a sucker for a long teddy coat. 

Here's a more casual take on the fuzzy collar trend that's ideal for everyday wear. 

The shag collar and ribbed corduroy fabric on this coat makes it feel like something you'd find in a vintage store in Paris.

The ribbed texture on this coat makes it all the more opulent. 

Everything about this coat is perfection—from the pink fur collar to the fact it's available in sizes XS–3X.

Cool girls, meet your new favorite cropped coat. 

Cold winter days won't have anything on this coat. 

Is it a blanket or a coat? How about both. 

This cobalt-blue coat is the pop of color your winter wardrobe needs. 

Note the contrasting leather trim on this shearling coat. 

Apparis's coats are made from sustainable materials.

I could stare at the shearling trim on this coat all day. 

NGL, I'm all about the return of houndstooth print. 

The worn-in leather look of this coat paired with the shearling trim makes it arguably one of the coolest jackets on the market. 

Yellow shearling? Sign me up. 

I mean, this may be the best peacoat I've ever seen. 

You'll want to click-in to see the tonal lace-up detailing on this jacket. It's beautiful.
