NEW YORK (AP) — Rain, snow, ice. There’s a lot of grumbling about the stiletto-adverse weather as New York Fashion Week hit Day 5 on Monday. But there’s a silver lining: cozy coats, especially styles with oversized fur hoods, never looked better.

Phillip Lim, for his 3.1 brand, sent out his big coats in navy and black during a show in a cavernous space south of the Lincoln Center tents.

Houndstooth set off one of Tommy Hilfiger’s coats for women. On a bomber jacket, he moved the comfy lining to the outside, putting the traditional Prince of Wales plaid on the inside.

In a romantic violet, Ralph Rucci sent out a coat in sable, while Alexander Wang stayed mostly with grays for big coats paired with fur hand warmers to the elbow.
