There's no arguing that there's so much to be excited about when it comes to fall fashion (ahem, denim skirts and ballet flats). And while there's an overwhelming amount of great trends that came off the fall/winter 2023 runways, I'd be lying if I didn't say that the outerwear was where it was at. From leather coats to coats with built-in scarves, 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—from shoes to bags, nothing was off limits. 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 Gucci's gray wool coat with an oversized fuzzy red lapel or Miu Miu's corduroy 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.
