It’s been a balmy 60° across both coasts, but in case there was any doubt, as soon as the slightest hint of cold touches my skin, I slip on a teddy bear Coat. Teddy coats are soft, cozy and literally the next best thing to wearing a blanket in public, so there really is no downside to owning one. Less stuffy than a crisp wool coat and more polished than a voluminous puffer, it is the lovely intermediate between the extremes of outerwear. It is a typical winter piece that can be styled with jeans or tailored trousers.
While the finest of the bunch (aka Max Mara’s beloved Teddy Bear Icon Coat) can certainly get into big territory, there are plenty of quality options that don’t require a whole lot of rent control. Luckily, I found the best the internet has to offer—from sub-$100 coats to lavish luxury options. Keep scrolling to see them all.
