A fur garment may be easy to throw on to stylishly beat the winter chill, but when done wrong... oh my, how quickly can we veer into trainwreck territory. We all love to have a Penny Lane moment now and then, but when a fur coat is over-dyed, neon-colored, or simply too voluminous (HOUSTON, WE HAVE A YETI), it can take a look from Almost Famous to unpleasantly infamous. 

The Fall 2014 runways took fur to a whole new level, and while we might never be caught wearing one of these outrageous coats, we have to applaud their designers for taking a fashion risk.

Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2014

Diane von Furstenberg’s multicolored fur coat looks as if it was stolen from the cast of the Muppets. Piggy called and wants her couture back.

Herve Leger by Max Azria Fall 2014

We’re not sure if this grey and black fur looks rock ‘n’ roll or just bewildering. Either way, it makes quite a statement.

DKNY Fall 2014

If Cruella de Vil had a younger, more fashionable niece, we imagine this striped fur coat is exactly what she would wear. And now you’ve got the song stuck in your head.

Adeam Fall 2014

Forget your regular Lululemon hoodie; it’s go fur or go home this year according to Adeam’s runway.

Custo Barcelona Fall 2014

For the showstopper in your life, because walking in wearing fur alone isn’t enough.

Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2014

If Thrift Shop was on your YouTube watch list in 2013, look no further than this coat for a replica of Macklemore’s second hand gem. 

Christian Siriano Fall 2014

We love a fur coat with attitude, and this fuzzy number with extraneous strings hanging off it moves with you whether on the catwalk or the streets of New York. 

Hellessy Fall 2014

Rarely has a fur coat looked so incredibly goth, but somehow Hellessy captured the spirit in drooping feathers and a furry collar.

BCBG Max Azria Fall 2014

Talk about insulation: this BCBG coat will protect you from any winter weather, polar vortex or not. 

Christian Siriano Fall 2014

If you desperately miss your Chia Pet from the ’90s, you’re in luck: this Christian Siriano coat is a wearable version of the sprouting plant. 

Diane von Furstenberg Fall 2014

This electric blue Diane von Furstenberg number is an instant statement piece. Just make sure to save it for after hours lest you be confused for a Studio 54 clubgoer at work.

Houghton Fall 2014

Between the subtle sheen and the oversized proportions, Houghton went all out with its black fur coat to end the designer’s runway presentation. 

Jill Stuart Fall 2014

Jill Stuart’s furry white coat brings to mind a polar bear crossed with a street style blogger’s fashion: fuzzy and warm, and just a bit outrageous.

Harbison Fall 2014

This fur-trimmed Harbison coat is a riot of pattern and fuzz, albeit a very chic one.
