Warm Wishes — Stay Toasty In This Season’s Colorful Patterned Fur Coats

Blige has been rocking Big Bird-colored fur jackets for over a decade, but these outerwear choices swiftly got her landed on many a worst-dressed list (though, in truth, her styling decisions were questionable on many of these occasions). Now, however, fuzzy jackets and coats in technicolor shades are not only a common sight but they’re highly coveted winter wardrobe staples since they add a playful energy to any ensemble and sprinkle some color into the often drab winter landscape. This season, we’re also lusting after cozy toppers with elaborate patterns — from stripes to polka dots, stars, camouflage motifs, and color-blocked designs. Worn over jeans, knee-length pencil skirts, or black leather pants, these coats instantly make a statement, conveying the message that you’re bold, self-assured, and adventurous in your fashion choices.
