This season, if there’s one jacket that you have to have, it’s the teddy jacket. From tan and ivory to more vibrant shades in classic peacoat, duster and cropped, teddy jackets come in as many styles as the teddy bears they’re named after.
The best kind of coat will take you anywhere—breakfast meetings, errands, evenings out. And, aside from being warm and comfortable, it goes with everything: jeans and sneakers, suiting, even athleisure. Put a perfect coat on and you’re pulled together and polished in seconds. Often when we’re shopping for an everyday “investment” coat, we head for the racks of more tailored pieces—but lately, several ultra-stylish women have been spotted out and about in a look that works just as hard as an everyday essential, but is anything but basic: Teddy Bear Icon coat.
The Teddy Bear coat was first made famous thanks to its plush fabric and statement-making style, and it has remained on-trend ever since. Take Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, for instance, who recently mixed the cozy-cool Teddy with her signature starlet-glam skinny jeans and ankle boots. Or Kim Kardashian West and Rita Ora; they both topped off streamlined black looks with the luxe furry piece. Elsa Hosk threw hers on over a double-denim look, while Hailey Baldwin made a perfect weekend look from jeans and the Teddy, this time with a hoodie and fuzzy pink slides. And punching up her track-pants-and-sneakers outfit was Heidi Klum in the red edition of the plush style.
