The Fashion Trend That had a Significant Impact in New York City

Though New York Fashion Week started off at a balmy 50 degrees Fahrenheit, by the final show, guests had endured a snowstorm and below-freezing temperatures. And we know that New York City is constantly evolving, and one of the contributing factors is the daring and unique fashion trends.

Dress for warmth, or break out a great-but-impractical outfit? It’s the question every editor, buyer, and influencer asked themselves as they left their house for a stacked schedule of shows. But the street style photos proved that those with (great) boots on the ground found a happy, stylish medium with furry jackets.

The style was everywhere this season. And the bold outerwear choice was styled in every which way. It’s a simple way to add texture to any look, which is why it made all of our favorite looks pop.

The trend is also not just some New York Fashion Week microtrend—it’s everywhere. You see it on the sleek slopes in aprés-ski style, on the Soprano wannabes of TikTok’s mob wife trend, and on the high-society women of Ryan Murphy’s Feud: Capote vs. the Swans.

Below, discover the ways that furry outwear stole this Fashion Week, and shop some of the best styles available while the weather is still cold enough to wear them, no sweat.

Wild Animal

A Carmela Soprano–coded coat option is one in a bold leopard print. You can use it as the standout element to punch up a more streamlined outfit. Or you can style it with other prints or something metallic (or both!).

The Classic

Keep it simple with a sleek monochromatic look punctuated by a luxe finishing touch: a furry coat that looks like it could have been borrowed from the closet of Gloria Vanderbilt. Add a pair of cool sneakers to make the look modern.
