As the winter’s chill slowly rolls in, music’s most stylish dressers are breaking out the fur. Though the polar vortex warrants the warmth of a PETA-disapproved piece, some have been flaunting their furs since spring. From classically glamorous to bright and eccentric, we’re topping off the year in style with eight musicians who best rocked a fur coat in 2016.

Harry Styles

One Direction’s Harry Styles was seen in London on Dec. 20 wearing an Yves Saint Laurent shearling coat. The '70s vibe of the coat was complemented by the singer’s choice of retro sunglasses, a gray hoodie and a handful of rings.

Justin Bieber

The Purpose singer and Grammy nominee was spotted in L.A. on Dec. 19 leaving a holiday party in an extravagant Burberry fur coat. Paired with light-wash, paint-splattered Fear of God jeans and tan boots, the extreme statement piece brought Bieber’s normally laid-back look to another level. Guess he needed to step it up for the extreme low-60s temperatures of California.

Rita Ora

On Dec. 8, British singer Rita Ora was photographed leaving her Soho hotel in a lavish, knee-length fur coat. The textures and colors -- a mix of camel, gray and creams -- of the coat wove together to create a luxurious, chunky design.

Gucci Mane

Gucci Mane’s 2016 was not only his comeback, but the beginning of a style transformation. One of his most outstanding looks is from a Nov. 22 Instagram post with fiancée Keshia Ka’oir. The rapper wears a custom Exclusive Game patchwork fur coat, white jeans and white Buscemi site boots. He embellishes the colorful, eclectic coat with oversize round-rimmed glasses for an extra funky ’70s feel.

On Nov. 13, Drake premiered a lo-fi music video for “Sneaking” with Atlanta-rapper 21 Savage exclusively via Apple Music. The Canadian rapper donned his finest jewelry and a flashy pink fur coat over a dark gray hoodie.

In a Rae Sremmurd feature for Complex in August, Slim Jxmmi debuted his pink Gucci Collarless fur coat. He has since worn the women’s Fall 2016 coat sans shirts to performances, interviews and appearances. The coat, along with his Gucci goggles, have become a signature for the rapper.

Ariana Grande

For a show in Carson, California on May 14, Ariana Grande sported a pink Fur Free Fur Wren coat by Stella McCarney. The singer rocker her oversize fur-alternative coat onstage with a white slip.


When accepting her Rock Star Award at BET’s Black Girls Rock! event on April 1, Rihanna pulled up to the red carpet and stage wearing head-to-toe Miu Miu. The Winter 2016 ensemble, featuring a casual button-down shirt and white shorts, was leveled-up with an elegant, ankle-length fur coat.
